Since June 2012 we’ve been based at The Sharp Project, home to many of Manchester’s great digital startups as well as some of the more experienced companies around.
We’ve had some great times, no, we’ve had some amazing times, and we’ve grown 5-fold in size. The only problem with reaching double figures in staff numbers is outgrowing our space, and that’s the problem we started looking to rectify earlier this year.
We searched high and low, scouring all corners of Manchester city centre to find our ideal home, and eventually we arrived in Ancoats. Suffice to say we quickly fell in love.
From Oldham, to Newton Heath, and now Ancoats
So where’s our new office located then?
Positioned in the middle of the Crown & Kettle pub and the Daily Express building on the corner of Ancoats & the Northern Quarter, we’ve taken the entire top floor of Virginia House, and work is already underway to sculpt the internals.
There’s a lot of furnishing to be done before we can move in fully, but we’re expecting to be in during early October. New carpets, a fresh lick of paint, the removal of a partition or two to open up the space, and an upgraded internet connection are our most pressing requirements.
The move will enable us to expand our team, work closely with more clients in the heart of Manchester, provide on-site training and better serve our current customers.
We’ll post our next set of photos when the office is complete (we need a bit of time to work out what we’re going to put on the walls!), and we’ll be holding a free open day / launch party for customers & friends to pop in and say hello. There will be coffee, prosecco, and perhaps a few Krispy Kreme donuts. Stay tuned for more news on this not-to-be-missed event, and we’ll also be revealing more about our burgeoning relationship with marketplace & e-commerce specialists Digitl.
So it’s goodbye to The Sharp Project, and hello to Ancoats. We’ll be sad to leave our home for the last few years, but we can’t wait to get into our new place. As one of Manchester’s highest ranking & best-rated web design & SEO agencies we’re literally “buzzin” with excitement (to coin a traditional Mancunian phrase).
