Manchester, UK, 21 July, 2015 – HSO, leading provider of innovative enterprise business solutions, has opened a major new office facility in Manchester, building on a period of dynamic expansion for the company.
HSO has posted revenue growth of 20% year on year (YoY), with a raft of key new customers being added to the client list over the past 12 months. These include big names in retail, such as Joules, Liberty London, AO.com and Crew Clothing; air filtration solutions provider, American Air Filters (AAF) and Premier Nutrition, owned by FTSE 100 food giant, Associated British Foods.
The new office represents the latest phase of an ongoing aggressive growth strategy, complementing the Reading and Glasgow-based HSO operations. The Manchester office will house more than 50 staff in total, including ten new hires added as part of the launch.
“The launch of our new Manchester office not only reflects the tremendous growth and success HSO has enjoyed these past four years since HSO Group first established a presence here in the UK, but the additional capacity for future staff hires and customer service facilities demonstrates the confidence we have in driving through continued business expansion,” says Adrian McNay, managing director, HSO Customer Service.
“Manchester is the ideal location for our new facility,” he adds. “It is close to our previous regional site, enabling us both to retain and continue to nurture the skills and expertise of existing employees. It has excellent road, rail and airport links with the local area, the country and the wider world. Manchester is a vibrant, dynamic environment for information technology businesses.”
According to Tech City UK’s recent Tech Nation report, Manchester has the UK’s fastest-growing tech cluster by turnover, with revenues increasing 74 per cent year-on-year.
HSO’s ambition to build on its robust platform for future growth demonstrated by the additional Manchester office capacity, is further underlined by the success of its HSO Graduate Traineeship boot camp scheme. Introduced a year ago these ‘Master Classes’ have been designed to train graduates in selling, delivering, implementing and integrating the industry-leading Microsoft Dynamics AX and Dynamics CRM solutions, and to prepare them for an associate consultancy position within HSO. The programme has been extremely successful, and has already resulted in 30 young professionals starting a career with the company.
