Technology firm delighted with its new premises
A leading district technology company has hailed its recent move to the Harborough Innovation Centre as a roaring success.
ICON, which designs web-based information management system for clients such as John Lewis, Asda and Boots, chose to relocate to the centre after being impressed by its facilities, helpful staff and flexible working space.
Sandra Lovelock, company secretary, said: “During our search for new premises, we felt that the Innovation Centre really stood out because it offered the quality offices that we needed, the flexibility to meet the needs of the company’s expansion plans and had a great team behind it.
“What was also important to us was that it had excellent parking facilities for our 14-strong staff and, as we are currently recruiting to our team, we felt that this could be a bonus for attracting new people.”
Harborough Innovation Centre, which is owned by Harborough District Council, was set up to act as a thriving hub for local businesses to launch, innovate and grow.
It comprises 53 offices and three studios and its resident entrepreneurs deal in everything from drainage and design, to prunes, property and recruitment.
Senior centre manager Mick Judge said: “We’re delighted that ICON chose the centre for its relocation. It’s a move which demonstrates that we are the ideal venue to help local companies have the space and confidence to launch and innovate or, as in ICON’s case, expand and recruit.
“In just 18 months we have created a thriving, corporate community and a centre buzzing with potential and ambition.”
