Owing to the amazing growth of Digital Balance during their time at Phoenix they have had to find larger premises elsewhere and will be moving shortly.
We are really sorry to see them go but sincerely wish them a continuing successful future and are very sorry we weren’t able to meet their requirement for additional space at the moment.
Below are details of their unit. If you have any interest please contact us or the agents.
