The former Bass Rock Oil Company compound in St Monans has been given a new lease of life and is now home to an eclectic mix of growing businesses.
Bass Rock Business Park, Station Road, St Monans, has been redeveloped by local property developer, Alan Waugh, to create a range of units from 15 to 186 square metres, to meet the needs of smaller businesses, looking for space to grow. There are storage containers on site too.
The business park took about nine months to develop, and the units come kitted out with infra-red heating, LED lighting, double glazing and have ample parking, and are home to a range of businesses including East Neuk Salt Co (https://eastneuksalt.com) and The Muffin Man (https://themuffinman.selz.com).
Jennifer Jones, a podiatrist who owns East Neuk Podiatry (www.eastneukpodiatry.co.uk), recently moved to premises at Bass Rock Business Park. She said:
“What Alan has done is fantastic! To develop business premises in a small community like St Monans, doesn’t happen often, and I was just in the right place at the right time. There’s a mix of businesses here, which is great for the locals – I’ve picked up a substantial number of new clients since opening my clinic at Bass Rock Business Park. It’s the best decision I’ve ever made!”
LED Laundry Services is also based at the Business Park. Margaret Leask spoke to fbm Update, saying:
“Bass Rock Business Park has provided the means for us to grow and succeed. Due to the popularity of staycations in the UK, we have seen a dramatic increase in demand for our services. We’ve grown from operating in my garage to having laundry facilities and a storage container, and we’ve also taken on one new member of staff, taking our headcount to six.”
