The Engine

The Engine House was established in 2017 in Castletown, Isle of Man and is an incubator to many thriving businesses.

We have since expanded our office to Exchange House, Athol Street. Renovated in 2020, it has provided home to many flourishing companies. We also have an office on the University of Bolton Campus. 

A personal mission for The Engine as a business is to commit to being Eco-friendly and so our spaces provide a mix of new and reclaimed/repurposed furniture to create an industrial concept in our office space. We use Eco-friendly LED lights and provide crockery and cutlery instead of paper or plastic cups and cutlery. 

The office space is relaxed and inviting, friendly and informal, whatever you want it to be, and whatever you make it. 
We house a variety of businesses, from e-gaming to legal, accounting to will providers. No business is too big or too small, too old or too new. We can assist in mentoring your business, providing expertise and community. We provide other services including DHL courier service, high speed WiFi, printing services and communal kitchens. 

We offer several membership options. Please see our individual offices for more details. To become an Engineer contact us today.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have high speed internet?

The Engine House, Castletown has hard-wired (Ethernet) connections as well as access to WiFi throughout the building. We have two lines working as one to provide redundancy if one should fail. Combined they provide a downstream speed of 200 Mbps and upstream of 40 Mbps with plans to increase capacity as required. If you need a private line we can arrange that for you and as we grow we expect to be able to offer an even better service. The Engine Room has 100 Mbps fibre with the option of wired or WiFi.
