Busy times at Workspace
It seems that Peterborough entrepreneurs are making 2019 the year they decide to up their game, follow their dream or start their side hustles as Workspace House continues to take on new tenants and virtual tenants.
So if like any of the businesses below you are looking to start up a business from home but want the privacy and security of a virtual tenancy with a professional commercial address or you are looking for serviced office or workspaces in Peterborough to allow your business to grow don't hesitate to get in touch with us and we will be glad to help you.
Our virtual tenant (mailbox) service is growing and at the start of April we welcomed three diverse new virtual office tenants:
from a new digital media company that focus on SEO and Facebook advertising. Please Digital Media Solutions works very closely with its clients and uses its knowledge and skills to create individual, targeted marketing strategies and campaigns that aim to ensure quality results time and time again.
Recognising more and more clients were needing to improve their results from local searches such as 'serviced offices near me' or 'tattoo artist near me' PleaseDigital felt that moving from a home address to a virtual commercial address here at Workspace House put themselves in a far better position when promoting their own services.
The business also helps clients with Facebook advertising, from research to audience segmentation, re-targeting, landing pages and much more. As they themselves say on their website "we love getting the cogs all fitting right, working as they should".

Magnotherapy for Health
...is owned and run by Nikki Pepper who has been retailing magnotherapy products since 1997. As a open minded sceptic, Nikki saw the benefits in the products herself while 'trying to prove it didn't work' and then also saw the significant benefits felt by friends and family.The nature of the product means that word of mouth is the key driver for new clients.
Nikki has now decided the time was right for a commercial address so she could take full advantage of GoogleMyBusiness as well as improve her SEO. Our virtual tenant service is perfect for Nikki as it means that her home address and location remain private and she can boost her SEO by ensuring her new business address features on search directories that she had previously not featured in.
Nikki has customers from all over the UK and further afield, she can even boast a glowing review from 'Santa Claus, North Pole' saying... 'It really works!'
Magnotherapy for Health is making plans to add new products through the next 12 months including a sports range and additional product options for horse owners.
If you are curious to know more, you can contact Nikki via her website https://www.magnotherapyforhealth.co.uk/
The most recent virtual tenant to join Workspace House is GPS tracking provider that can boast a diverse range of clients including clients based in the USA and Caribbean. Currently there are Activus Tracking devices fitted to cars, vans, lorries, motorcycles, boats, agricultural machinery, mobility scooters, dogs and coming soon to dementia sufferers.
We constantly upgrade our existing products and launch new ones to meet expectations of our customers. and although an independent supplier, Activus Tracking is also an authorised global distributor for Teltonika devices.

We are also welcoming two new businesses that have decided to relocate their businesses to our serviced offices and workspaces.
Started in 2014 by owner Natalie Rose, Rose Beauty was started with the aim of giving their clients the most relaxing & luxurious experience they could. At present Rose Beauty offer lash, brow, skincare, makeup and nail treatments but Natalie is constantly looking and researching for additional products and services that can bring added value to her business and enhance the customer experience.
Natalie, decided to move into Workspace House as our value driven offer meant she was able to secure a large serviced workspace - significantly larger than her previous space - that gave her the space she needs now but also space to expand as she grows the business.
An appointment based business also means that Natalie did not have to locate her business in a high footfall area, which often attract higher costs but also restrictions on use. Again the benefits of a serviced workspace with 24hr access and full CCTV helped Natalie decide that Workspace House could work for her.
To follow Rose Beauty search for @rosebeautyuk on both Facebook & Instagram
Although a new business, our next new tenant is already an Award winning business!
Very Craftea, specialise in socially responsible loose leaf tea and craft kits created by Tasnime Jennings. Originally operating from residential premises Very Craftea has been searching for a unique commercial space that was small in size and this proved more of challenge that first thought. The answer, following a number of discussions, was to create a micro office and workspace here at Workspace House!
What makes Very Craftea stand out is that the business is more than just selling, and aims to help its suppliers. For example, for the tea they use, they decided to work with a single supplier who, to quote Tasnime, " ... give 50% of their profits to address the issue of educational development in and around the under-served tea growing region of Darjeeling, so the more tea I sell, the more money can go towards projects to help. This money goes direct to the people it affects, not to a big corporation."
The craft kits also have a collaborative approach. The kits are complete kits (apparently something that is not always the case for the majority of craft kits) that are sourced from women who run their own businesses here in the UK, giving them support and awareness. The business is looking to expand the craft range and Very Craftea are always looking to source new suppliers.

Tech company, Hexolen Ltd, takes up residency at Workspace
Workspace House welcomes our third new tenant this year as Karim Boulter has decided to base the UK arm of his Hong Kong based Hexolen Group here with us.
The business has three core areas;
LCDs for mobile phone repairs
Apple watch straps as well as
Production & QC services in mainland China
and is looking to expand its presence and business in the UK & Europe.
The Hexolen group was founded in Hong Kong in 2013 with a goal to provide product sourcing services to companies without a presence in China and has since extended the scope of the Group to become a supplier of mobile phone repair parts as well as a service provider to companies that need to connect with China.
With this knowledge and access to China, Karim is a welcome addition to Workspace and we hope that we will be able to use his knowledge to provide insight, assistance and support tenants, and other Peterborough businesses, that already use or are considering using China to help in the growth of their business.
For Karim the fully staffed reception with the ability to handle deliveries in and out of the facility was a major decision in choosing Workspace House. Likewise our location in Woodston with easy access to town and further afield make us perfect for their needs.

Public artwork taking shape at Workspace.
Commissioned Sculptor becomes our next tenant.
Established artist (and physicist) Jasmine Pradissitto has become our next tenant at Workspace House whilst she works on a major new public installation. The artwork is being created using an amazing polymer that actually absorbs nitrogen dioxide and it was the use of this material that led Jasmine to Workspace.
Alsitek, creators of the material in question, are a successful Peterborough based business that originally started in....... Workspace House, and are still based nearby. And so, it made sense for Jasmine to be based near to her supplier and that meant Workspace House.
The sculpture itself is to be permanently sited in London (Camden People's Theatre - NW1 2PY) and is the result of a collaboration between Jasmine, the Mayor of London, Euston Green Link, MTArtAgency and is being supported and sponsored by Alsitek. Hopefully we will be able to post updates on the artwork as it is created and you can find out more about how this artwork came to be, Jasmine herself and the other works she has created at www.pradissitto.com.
Workspace welcomes Driver Training tenant.
Flagship Trucks becomes first new tenant for 2019.
With the sounds of New Year still ringing in our ears we are pleased to announce that our first new tenant of 2019 is onsite and hitting the ground running.
Owner, Director and Trainer, Pete Rushmer, is putting his years of experience gained within the automotive industry and most recently HGV trucks to good use with the launch of Flagship Trucks. Recognising there was a gap in the market for comprehensive quality training, development and coaching services for Transport and Logistics businesses, Pete made the decision fill the void and Flagship was born.
Finding where to operate his business proved to be quick and easy! A chance meeting with fellow Workspace tenant and training provider, Elastoclass First Aid, quickly resulted in Pete moving his business into one of our larger serviced offices here in Woodston. The appeal of a serviced office that provides a staffed reception, good location with access to Peterborough and beyond coupled with super-fast internet and very low-cost monthly charges were contributing factors in his decision. However, the atmosphere and positive welcoming vibe from other tenants also played a massive part in confirming Workspace was the perfect location.
At present Flagship offer a targeted selection of courses including "JAUPT approved" Driver Periodic CPC courses, Emergency First Aid at Work for Drivers as well as Customer Service courses. The goal is to expand the range of courses ensuring that the needs of their clients are met. The next CPC course with availability is taking place on Saturday 19th January and runs from 8am-3:30pm (includes lunch). You can contact Flagship Trucks to find out more via their website https://flagshiptrucks.com/contact-us/.
Relax with our new tenant!
Highlighting the truly flexible approach we take to our serviced offices/workspaces here at Workspace House in Woodston, we can announce that local business owner, Natasha Mclean, has moved her wax melt, candle, bath bomb and fragrances business into our premises.
The business, Relax with Wax, only started in January this year but the demand and need for space meant that they quickly needed to find somewhere away from home to operate from. Being able to adapt and change the use of a serviced office/workspace is one of the many benefits of Workspace House and it didn't take long to convert the space from office into workshop!
It hasn't taken Natasha long to settle in and take advantage of the 24hr access so she can keep on top of all the Christmas orders that are rushing in. Likewise, the staffed reception and loading bays have made it easy for her to focus on running the business and not worry about being around or not hearing the delivery/couriers arrive.
As for the business itself, and using Natasha's own words "We handmake and sell handmade hand-poured eco and vegan friendly wax melts, candles including personalised candles and home fragrances.
Our aim is to provide high quality handmade products for affordable prices. We source oils from reliable suppliers that are against Animal Testing, and all dyes and Mica powders are only from Natural Minerals. We do not use any other additives in our production process."
With Relax with Wax moving in, Workspace House now only has four serviced offices/workspaces available. If you are looking for a serviced office/workspace, in Peterborough in a great location (Woodston) take a look at what we offer and get in touch to arrange a tour around our facilities.
