JSJS Designs and Birmingham:
Birmingham is a brilliant city for us because of its great access to road, rail and airports, its the centre of the UK and only 1 hour 15 from London
When and why JSJS Designs moved to Birmingham Science Park: We moved here as it is a great location being in the midlands. Another reason was for all of the contacts the science Park has to offer, since moving here we have setup many great partnerships with other companies. It is refreshing to do business with like minded companies who are a stones throw away. Makes doing business a lot easier.
