CSF - one of the country's leading IT specialists - has chosen Barteak Development's Castle Court office scheme in Dudley for its new Midlands headquarters.
The IT consultancy, which lists customers among the The Times top 100, has taken a two storey 3,918 sq ft unit on a ten-year lease at £16 per sq ft at the courtyard-style project at Castle Gate Business Park.
Nationwide, CSF employs 200 staff in London, Warrington and Dudley and is ranked among the top five IT Enterprise solutions providers for IBM and HP.
The move from Halesowen enables the firm to expand its presence in the West Midlands, said CSF's co-owner and director, David Greenberg.
"We were attracted to Castle Court for its high specification, prime location close to the motorway network and most importantly its close proximity to our customer base," he added.
"Dudley is a growth area and we see great opportunity for us there."
Castle Court is the first speculative office development in the Black Country for a decade and is already home to commercial interior designers SJS Office Designs, Buy As You View and Freecom.net.
There are three units remaining offering grade 'A' comfort cooled space from 1,672 up to a total of 5,295 sq ft.
David Back at Barteak Developments is confident Castle Court will soon be fully occupied, with the scheme now being 70 per cent let or sold.
He said: "Companies are recognising the importance of Dudley as an up and coming area for business.
"The success of Castle Court means we are actively looking to develop similar schemes elsewhere in the West Midlands."
Joint agents for Castle Court are CB Richard Ellis and Bulleys.
Meanwhile, a Warwickshire IT company has been celebrating its tenth anniversary working for a top law firm.
Stratford-based professional IT solutions and training company Humber-Ashford Associates marked the anniversary of working with Needham & James, also based in Stratford, with a special lunch at the Baraset Barn.
Directors from Humber-Ashford invited partners and managers from Needham & James to join them at the event.
Joanne Humber, director of Humber-Ashford Associates, said: "We started working for Needham & James in 1995 when we set up and have worked for them consistently ever since, either training staff or setting up templates on their computer systems.
"We have an excellent working relationship with Needham & James and felt an anniversary lunch was the ideal way for us to celebrate the occasion with our clients. We are thoroughly looking forward to continuing working with them in the future."
Herbert Andrews, managing partner at Needham & James, said: "As a firm, Needham & James are committed to the training and development of their staff and are delighted that Humber-Ashford have been so supportive with all of our IT training needs."
Humber-Ashford has more than a decade of experience developing IT strategies for professional service organisations and has built a strong reputation for working with legal firms throughout the UK.
Joanne Humber added: "Since setting up our company we have worked in various industry sectors but have developed a niche in working with legal practices throughout the country to find solutions for their IT requirements.
"By working with firms such as Needham & James we have enhanced our reputation in the sector and are looking forward to an even brighter future."
Humber-Ashford Associates was set up in 1995 and offers advice on existing IT systems and recommendations for the future. It customises software and networks, and offers experienced IT trainers to deliver structured training programmes.
Needham & James, celebrating their golden jubilee next year, has offices in Stratford, Birmingham, Shipston on Stour and Moreton in Marsh. It has 22 partners and a staff of more than 140.
