Reintroducing innovation

Way back in the 1800s, Thomas Hoyle was at the forefront of innovative textile printing technology. True to Hoyle’s spirit, this co-working space has innovation at its heart.

Mayfield & Co was established to create a collaborative community of like-minded people, organisations and businesses inventing, sharing ideas and creating a springboard for business success. It’s currently a community of six Manchester micro-businesses that are bringing industry and creativity back to once-abandoned buildings across the site.
