Robin Walker, Worcester’s MP, has welcomed the plans of technology company Postcode Anywhere to move operations to the city, following a meeting with managing director Guy Mucklow and IT director Jamie Turner.
Postcode Anywhere has acquired new corporate headquarters in Worcester’s Diglis Basin, at the heart of the city’s rejuvenated porcelain district.
The imposing contemporary building provides the ideal location for the expanding technology company, as it plans to double its workforce and increase revenue threefold within the next five years. The company is currently recruiting for several key positions.
Diglis Basin is property developer Taylor Wimpey’s £75 million flagship development. With a gym, retail outlets and residential properties, the waterfront park creates a convenient and visually stunning environment for a vibrant workforce.
Postcode Anywhere’s vision for its new space is to create an environment that is comfortable, light and modern, making a bold statement about the company’s success in developing new technology. The company’s directors envisage that internal refurbishments will be completed by October 2012, with the company moving in before Christmas.
“I am always delighted to welcome a new business to the city but it is especially exciting when we can welcome a fast-growing and innovative technology business such as Postcode Anywhere to such an iconic location. The regeneration of the Diglis Basin has been a great success for the city and it is already beginning to thrive.
“Worcester has already attracted a number of companies to set up headquarters here but it is something we are well placed to improve on given our strategic location and quality of life.
“Postcode Anywhere’s strong record in social responsibility is hugely encouraging and I look forward to seeing their community involvement grow, alongside their number of employees.”
