A digital agency is to create up to 40 new jobs as it opens a new Manchester office.
Fusionworkshop, who provides websites across all devices, are opening a new Manchester office as it plans for growth.
The company boss, Chris Short, said that Manchester’s creative and digital scene was a perfect fit for the firm as it went about deciding where to open next.
He said: “We have ambitious growth plans, and want to better serve our customers in the north and midlands,”
“We looked at a number of locations, but it was a simple decision, Manchester has an impressive mix of digital, creative and technical talent.
“We want to build on that, and forge strong relationships with its local universities.”
Fusionworkshop expect revenues to grow to almost £5m in 2015/16, work with companies including Saint Gobain, The Guinness Partnership and Baker Tilly.
Mr Short added: “By bringing together Fusionworkshop’s award winning Sitecore experience with the quality of Manchester’s digital talent, we will provide a stand out service in the north west and beyond.”
The Northern Quarter office, which is under final negotiations, will start with an initial 15 staff member, with the company is aiming to build a strong Manchester presence of 25-40 people over the next two years.
The firm said the Manchester base will complement teams in Cardiff and London and bolster its overall headcount to at least 80.
