Leading IT managed services group moves into Innovation centre

Netstore plc, a leader in the field of mid-market IT Managed Services and IT Security, has set up a regional office in the Innovation Centre on Longbridge Technology Park, Birmingham.

The 25-strong regional team has relocated from Rubery to a 2,182 sq ft suite in the 45,000 sq ft building developed by St Modwen Properties PLC, the UK¹s leading regeneration specialist, in association with Advantage West Midlands, as part of the first phase of the 40-acre technology park.

The launch of the new offices was attended by Netstore¹s new chief executive Graham Kingsmill, 50 staff from the north and south security divisions plus some 20 clients.

Gareth Blinkhorn, Netstore¹s client services manager, said: ³We needed more prestigious offices to bring our clients to and for training and that was one of the key things which attracted us to the Innovation Centre.

³The northern sales team works out of Birmingham and our new regional centre offers all the back-up services we require.²

Andrea Fullard, Innovation Centre manager, said : ³I am delighted to welcome Netstore to the Innovation Centre. They are a valued client and have taken one of our largest suites. We are currently 20% occupied, and considering we have only had our doors open eight weeks demand for the centre is high, with other larger companies taking space shortly.²
