Abbey Mill Business Centre

Stylish modern offices in buildings steeped in history, Abbey Mill Business Centre has something for every size of business.

Once an important part of the Scottish thread industry, the business centre is now home to a huge variety of start-ups, charities, call centres, creative agencies, SMEs, and branches of international organisations. From sole traders to larger businesses employing 250 people, the centre provides space for all sorts of organisiations.

Four extensively-refurbished buildings make up the centre. These are Anchor One, the Sir James Clark building, Mile End Mill and the Old Embroidery Mill. Each property has it’s own unique charm and features. The Old Embroidery Mill is ideal for small businesses or sole traders who want a sense of community. The Sir James Clark Building is perfect for small to medium sized businesses and offers super-fast internet connections and secure office facilities. Mile End Mill is the hub of the centre, and is one of the finest surviving mill buildings in Scotland. And Anchor One has a wide range of offices, with tall ceilings, natural light and a unique river-side setting.

The centre benefits from 700 car parking spaces, on-site gym and cafe. Mile End Mill is also home to the The Heritage Centre.

Whether you are a local business looking for your first premises, or an established company searching for a new home, Abbey Mill has something to offer everyone. The business centre team promise that they don’t just offer an empty room, but can help you build the office of your dreams.

I would advise any other creative businesses to think about setting up in Paisley because the potential is massive – there is such a great community of creative people.
