WRDC (Enterprise Trust) Ltd (called 'The Wigtown Rural Development Company' until
July 2002) was set up in 1983 as a local provider of business advice and funding
to businesses within the Wigtown District by means of a joint agreement involving
Dumfries and Galloway Regional Council, Wigtown District Council, the Scottish Development
Agency and interested sponsors from the private sector.
The main activity of the Company is the provision of low cost loan funding to existing
and start-up businesses within Wigtownshire. In so doing WRDC often acts as a catalyst
to help businesses attract funding in an area where risk finance is not always easy
to obtain. During the Company's existence a wide range of business sectors have
been funded some of which have been unable to secure funding elsewhere being outside
the remit of other agencies.
In 1988 WRDC refurbished and opened Castle Court on Castle Street in Stranraer as
rented office accommodation. Find out more about it here.
In 2007 WRDC opened the WRDC Business Centre in Newton Stewart. From here WRDC offer
furnished office space and meeting facilities to businesses. Find out more about
the WRDC Business Centre and the services it can provide here.
