Innovation Factory

Innovation factory. A dynamic flexible and entrepreneurial business space. Beyond boundaries.

The Innovation Factory is a pioneering, creative business space.

It is a dynamic, flexible and entrepreneurial hub for start-up businesses and expanding firms specialising in innovation, research and development and other creative solutions.

The new business space forms part of our Investment Programme pledge to support regeneration by investing in infrastructure which will make it easier for businesses to start up and grow. This, in turn, will create wealth and employment opportunities for local residents.

We’ve appointed Oxford Innovation Limited to manage the Innovation Factory. If you’d like to know more about accommodation and services available, please phone 028 9590 2500 or email info@innovationfactoryni.com
