Tamworth-based management software business, Easyquote, has relocated to barn conversion offices at Shuttington Fields Farm as part of its ongoing growth plans.
The expanding company has taken three self contained units on the site – let by Loughborough-based agents Mather Jamie – and is now in the process of recruiting additional staff.
Totalling 3,867 sq ft, the site comprises a one-storey, brick-built barn, and two two-storey converted agricultural buildings, all of which have been designed to a high standard to include perimeter trunking, double glazed windows and kitchen facilities.
Reg Pollock of Mather Jamie said the site – which is just outside Shuttington – was an ideal location for a software business like Easyquote.
He added: “The three buildings have been converted to meet the needs of a modern, growing business but also benefit from an attractive rural location with plenty of parking.
“Shuttington Fields Farm is also ideally situated just two miles from Tamworth and six miles from Junction 11 of the M42.”
“This letting shows that there is still movement in the office market and that occupiers are attracted to rural locations, which sometimes work better for business.”
Easyquote, which was previously based at Pebble Close Business Village at Amington near Tamworth, was the first dedicated business management software provider to the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom market, with one in five retailers or manufacturers now using its software.
Established in 2000 by managing director Leigh Martin, the business, which employs 34 people, is now looking to strengthen its team across the board and has already recruited an additional web developer since the beginning of the year.
Mr Martin added: “We are looking for more skilled people in the area of IT, sales and support and plan to gradually grow the business over the next four years now that the company is based on one site.
“We were in two separate buildings at our previous location, which was not ideal.
Shuttington Fields Farm is much more suited to our needs as it has more than 20 parking spaces and is easily accessible for our staff and our customers.”
