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 potential business people in the District and in so doing act as a catalyst in funding small businesses 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 October 1998 WRDC (Enterprise Trust) Ltd moved to new offices in the recently opened Galloway Business Centre, Newton Stewart. From this date WRDC's services were extended to include day-to-day management of the Business Centre on behalf of Lowland Business Centres based in Dumfries.

WRDC is the Local Access Point for people, in and around Newton Stewart, requiring business advice and Support from Scottish Enterprise Dumfries and Galloway through their Business Gateway Network.
