Exertis Micro-P has combined its two businesses in Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire into a new building doubling the size of its previous office capacity.
The new office measures 10,500 square feet, versus the former office’s 5,000 square feet. Since Monday 20 January it has housed Exertis Security, Exertis GEM Design Services, the northern team for Conect, and Exertis Micro-P Mobile North that encompasses the mobile and accessories teams and the nationwide airtime team.
The distributor, who has had presence in the area since acquisition of Tekdata Distribution in 2008, has made the move as part of its plans for continued expansion in mobility, unified communication and managed security services, increase of its nationwide footprint and growth of its brand.
Gerry O’Keeffe, managing director at Exertis UK & Ireland Group, commented: “This move is strategic for the development of Exertis. In terms of space, we now have the room to grow our teams, and we can dedicate even more resources to our customers, bringing them to us for planning meetings, vendor training days and more.
“This new office brings our company closer together under the Exertis brand, creating tighter working relationships, strengthening internal relationships, and allowing more communication between departments. 2014 is set to be a year of tremendous growth for Exertis Micro-P,” added O’Keeffe.
He concluded “We have invested £1.5m in purchasing this site, which is testament to our long term plans to build significant sales capacity in the Stoke-On-Trent area. We now employ over sixty people in the area and see it as a very promising hinterland for the recruitment of quality sales people”.
