A history of


Following the completion of the Arlington Business Centre, the site began to see the production of computers rapidly rolling out of the business park. In June of the following year, the building was officially opened by HRH Princess Anne, now known as HRH the Princess Royal.


Systime was bought and taken over by an American computer company named Control Data Corporation. Following this production was scaled back.


Arlington Business Centre was left empty, with all production relocation to the Apple Corporation.


Systime and Raymond Mould, CEO of Arlington Securities, finalised a deal for the sale of the land and properties. The following two years saw a refurbishment project revitalise the building and subsequently let to a number of companies.


The office park was rebranded to White Rose Office Park, pending a decision from the owner, David Aspin. The rebranding occurred following the expansion of the park, expanding beyond what was previously a park containing only the ABC building.


Today White Rose Park is home to a range of different companies and is fast becoming a recognised tech cluster with the likes of DAZN and Capita on site.
