3Squared Office opening proves UK tech is alive and well

21st March 2012

These days, if you turn on the television, you’re likely to see stories of companies laying off staff and making losses. We really feel like we are bucking the trend. In fact, we’re moving at a pace, just like the technology we harness on behalf of our clients.

In the past 10 years, we’ve seen growth to a team of 20, and on outgrowing our home on the Moor, we have have invested in a new, larger premises in the city centre’s Fountain Precinct.

Rt Hon David Blunkett MP officially opened the new offices on Thursday 15th March, and said: ‘3Squared are becoming one of the leading lights of our region’s thriving creative and digital industry. I am sure they will continue to grow, creating jobs and showcasing the huge talent we have in our area.’ 

Our  Commercial Director James Fox said, ‘The UK’s digital industry is going from strength to strength, and we’re living proof of that. We’re flourishing despite the tough economy, and in part, that’s due to the immense pool of talent and creativity we have in this country.’

‘We pride ourselves on the fact that we regularly take on placement students and then employ them full-time once they’ve finished their degree. It helps us to stay on the forefront of technological change and then deliver that expertise to our customers.’

Here at 3Squared we have been developing innovative websites and software solutions for 10 years and have worked with some of the largest businesses within the UK, as well as Europe and the USA. Recently, we developed a particular expertise in the development of mobile apps, working for a diverse range of clients across the health, retail, leisure and entertainment sectors.

Fox said, ‘Moving to new premises will allow us to continue growing, and offering more services to our customers. We’re confident about the future of our company as well as the UK technology industry in general.’
