A brand new 10,000 sq ft commercial and operational facility has been built by the IT distribution and services group, Entagroup, to accommodate expansion, improve communication and deliver greater levels of service to customers.
The £500,000 single floor development houses over 200 staff of the commercial, operational and technical teams of Entatech, its hardware, software and components distributor; Entanet, its voice and data communications provider; and Entamedia, its web and graphic design agency.
Commenting on the project, Entagroup founder and CEO Jason Tsai said “The new unified office will enable our companies to communicate and collaborate more easily, resulting in improved efficiency for both us and our customers. A large number of our customers partner with both Entatech and Entanet and we recognise the need to capitalise on the opportunities that this brings. In addition, as both Entatech and Entanet actively recruit new staff across their business, it has become necessary to create new workspace.”
Significantly, the development of the new office will allow even further expansion within the businesses. “By releasing office space previously occupied by staff we are about to more than double the size of Entanet’s data centres and facilitate a further 200 racks to meet the intense demand for our colocation and hosting services” says Jason Tsai.
Entagroup was established in 1990 with the founding of Entatech. Due to year on year growth, by 1996 Jason Tsai realised the need for larger premises and the company moved to its purpose built pagoda building located on Stafford Park, Telford. Made from genuine Taiwanese and Chinese materials, the unique building cost £5million to construct and is surrounded by ornate gardens, calming waterfalls and is also home to over 200 Koi carp and an art gallery. Today the Enta group of companies provides a diversity of IT products and services, predominantly through channel reseller Partners. Annual turnover is more than £140 million.
