Welcome to the world of SOG Ltd – a story of transformation,
commitment, and community impact!
SOG Ltd, born from the vision of senior ICI staff and Merseyside businessman John Lewis MBE DL, was initially created to save The Heath from closure. Their mission? Transform a single-occupancy corporate site into a bustling business and technical park, securing jobs and creating a sustainable regional asset.
A Sustainable Future: John Lewis, now the sole owner of SOG, is on a mission to ensure The Heath thrives as a vital employment and community asset in Halton. The team, assembled to face the challenges of climate change, crafted a scheme declared a ‘Beacon Project’ by Mayor Steve Rotheram and endorsed by the UK Government in the Global Investment Atlas.
Safety First: Operating a science site demands top-notch health & safety. SOG is a trailblazer in this, offering extensive specialist support that sets it apart from competitors. Their flexible license system gives businesses room to grow without the constraints of long-term leases.
Business Growth: As The Heath site reached capacity, SOG launched a new build-programme, offering bespoke buildings for fast-growing businesses. With relocation assistance and facilities management, SOG ensures a smooth transition for businesses evolving in line with their needs.
Community Impact: SOG’s ownership has transformed The Heath into a community hub. From a café/restaurant to boutique shopping, fitness facilities, and community activities, The Heath has become a social haven. Click here to explore community initiatives combating loneliness.
