2ergo’s Global Expansion Buoyed by New Media City HQ

2ergo, the provider of mobile enabling technology, focussing on mobile marketing, customer relationship management and entertainment, has confirmed its continued success and ambitious growth plans by announcing a move to new headquarters in Manchester.

The company, based in Lancashire since its formation in 1999, has grown by 628 per cent in the last 5 years and is poised to transfer its worldwide headquarters to the Digital World Centre in the heart of Media City, Salford Quays.

Chris Brassington, 2ergo group managing director, said: “This move is a powerful symbol of our strategic intention, ambition and commitment to becoming one of the most admired and profitable worldwide players in our field.

“As a global leader in mobile enabling technology, we are well positioned for continued expansion, with mobile communications fast becoming a major growth area. Revenue from mobile marketing alone is set to soar globally from the current £750m a year to around £4bn by 2011 – something UK businesses can’t ignore in today’s difficult economic climate.

“We believe our innovative and highly flexible range of products and services will complement Media City – a purpose-built area which was designed to provide a ‘hub’ for broadcasters, new media industries and businesses wanting to embrace the latest technology. We already work in partnership with FOX News in the United States, so being located next to major media organisations, such as the BBC, and some of the UK’s leading marketing companies, can only aid our continued growth.”

2ergo is expected to complete its headquarters move in early January, 2009. Staff will occupy 9,157 sq ft of space on the fourth floor of the 72,400 sq ft, nine-storey Digital World Centre building.

Chris Brassington, added: “The new headquarters will provide the people creating our success story – 2ergo’s employees – with the improved office space and better facilities they deserve. In addition, we’re also confident the new base will be a significant asset in attracting and retaining high-quality people in the future.”
