Quorum Business Park has welcomed a raft of new occupiers into their newly created Neon suites.
The 18 units created within the Neon building were launched in October 2018 and provide spaces from 6 up to 150 desks.
The space was created with generous break out space and shared facilities and an urban feel to attract younger fast growth companies, and this approach has been borne out with the first three new occupiers all coming from Newcastle’s growing Tech cluster.
WANdisco, a leading Californian headquartered Big Data Company, became the first letting in the inspirational new space. WANdisco specialise in providing data infrastructure with its ground-breaking LiveData platform.
Contec a system integrator focusing on industrial automation was the next new company to arrive, taking 681sqft. Contec was founded in 1986 in Belgium and specialise in engineering software. This international inward investment saw the opening of Contec’s first office in the UK, with Newcastle being chosen for this new investment.
The third new tenant to Neon Thingco, taking 1,081 sqft. Thingco is focused on developing telematics technology and applications utilising artificial intelligence. In January 2019 they launched ‘Theo’ the ground-breaking connected car service delivered via a ‘super dashcam’. CEO Mike Brockman says, ‘Our new location in the Neon building will act as our nerve centre and most importantly offers us the right environment for expansion, as device sales take off following the launch’.
Fergus Trim, Director at Broadoak, Asset Managers at Quorum said ‘We are pleased to welcome WANdisco, Contec and Thingco to the Neon building. They are all a great example of the growing tech sector companies being attracted by the new high- quality suites we have created in Neon’
The creating of the Neon suites was a significant investment at Quorum, bringing creative design and amenity, while maintaining the high-quality office space which the business park is known for. This allows businesses of all sizes to access to shared meeting rooms, breakout hubs and open space to meet and collaborate with fellow occupiers.
