Nordica Design

Our Tenants Case Study: Nordica Design

Ryan Irvine started Nordica Design in early 2022 and has moved into a unit at Strangford Park in Ards Business Hub.

Meet our business:

Nordica Design is an exciting new multi-faceted company with an amazing pool of creative talent spanning design, specialist joinery and shopfitting working on a range of projects across the UK and Ireland.

Started by Ryan Irvine who has 12 years’ design and joinery experience, the company designs and creates furniture, displays and other units for exhibitions, events, commercial and residential interiors, shops and television and movie sets. In just a short time, they’ve made a big impact and this year were shortlisted for two IDI (Institute of Designers in Ireland) awards for two projects for Singer Porsche and Copeland Distillery.

“It’s been an incredibly busy year and we are working hard to fulfil the many projects that have come in from a vast network of clients. Our industry was really hit during Covid, so it’s great to see things returning to normal again,” he said.

Why he chose Ards Business Hub:

“I was specifically seeking a starter unit of about 1000 square feet with a roller shutter but nothing was available. The team at Ards Business Hub took my details and promised to ring when something came up and I was delighted when it did.”

“I really like the convenient location with easy access to the motorways to get to both Belfast and Dublin. Plus, the units are secure and in good condition.”

What we say:

Nichola Lockhart, Chief Executive of Ards Business Hub, said: “Nordica Design is an exciting new company that takes the ideas expressed by their clients and then turns them into a reality whether that’s for the domestic or commercial market. Their skills in design and building are second to none and we were delighted that just the right unit came up at the right time for them.”
