With a strong year ahead, Hornbeam Park put their support behind the Yorkshire Business Market

This year is proving to be a significant year of development for Hornbeam Park. It will see the completion of a major new development of warehouse and office space for business, along with them becoming a partner for the Yorkshire Business Market for the first time.

Hornbeam Park Developments Ltd is the team behind Hornbeam Business Park and numerous commercial developments in Harrogate. Part of their portfolio is what was the old Research and Development Laboratories for ICI fibres, the building where crimplene was developed, taking its name from the Crimple Valley and the crimp used in manufacture.

The buildings were most recently used by Harrogate College. When they vacated they were demolished and are now being rebuilt into some of the highest quality large business space in the town. The buildings are being built to BREEAM standards and have an EPC A-rating.
