With our South Wales base having been located in the Sony Technology Park for the last 15 years, we have now moved into our very own office in the heart of Bridgend at One Court Road.
The office move comes as a result of growth over the past few years, which has seen our workforce increase to now employing 50 people across Wales and the UK, with offices also in Anglesey and Aberystwyth.
We began life as ‘BIC Eryri’, the Business Innovation Centre for North West Wales, and became a private consultancy company, specialising in innovation and growth following a management buy-out in 2004. We expanded beyond North Wales with the opening of the South Wales office at Sony in 2007, and work with clients across the UK and across the globe.
In 2018 we started our own change journey and took the step to transition into a Hybrid Employee-Owned business. With a growing team, services, and client base, switching to a stand-alone office in the heart of Bridgend gives us space to progress with our plans for further growth and development.
Being located just 300ft from Bridgend train station, the new office will also enable current staff and clients to avoid the traffic, with easy access to public transport, which also supports our aim of reducing our carbon footprint.
Executive Director Linda Grant comments:
“Although the office move is in full swing, we will take a phased approach to returning to the office, with the team currently working from home in line with Government guidelines. Once open, we will be taking precautions such as adhering to social distancing, regular cleaning,sanitising and ventilation. We will be operating a hybrid home working model so that numbers are limited in the office and we support the health and wellbeing of our team members, clients and partners.
We are also very mindful that town centres have been hit particularly hard by the pandemic and our move to the Bridgend town centre location perfectly aligns with our ethos of putting value back into our local communities. We’re very proud of the hard work of all our team members in supporting our clients through the very challenging few years that we’ve had and we are looking forward to collaborating and working together with colleagues, clients and partners from our new office.”
The new office is located at: One Court Road, Bridgend, CF31 1BE
