Chorley-based Utiligroup has celebrated its recent growth by moving into new 16,000 sq ft offices.

The new headquarters, based on Euxton Lane, Chorley, now house the firm’s current 142-strong team.

The relocation has also delivered the resources and space required to support the company’s upcoming recruitment drive across departments such as consultancy, client solutions and development.

In preparation for the move, the Chorley-based provider of software solutions and services to the energy and utilities industry has invested £400,000 in the fit-out of the site.

Amenities for the staff to enjoy include an American diner, a ‘chill out’ and games room and themed meeting areas.

Matthew Hirst, CEO of Utiligroup and Chorley resident said: “After London, the North West is now the second largest hub for the innovation of technology and digital in Europe. Evidence of the growth and strengthening of the region’s reputation can be seen in the diversification and differentiation of businesses, as well as the increase in coverage surrounding the ‘Northern Powerhouse’.”

Earlier this year, Utiligroup ranked among the North’s top 50 fastest growing companies within the digital technology sector at the GP Bullhound Northern Tech Awards.

An official opening event was attended by local dignitaries.
