Evoke Creative to move to new HQ
Evoke Creative is investing in a new head office on the back of growing international demand for its interactive digital products and continuing expansion of its team.
The £10m turnover company, which designs and makes digital kiosks, interactive displays, ticketing and check-in machines for businesses including JD Sports Fashion, Google, McDonald’s and Tesco, will move to a new 30,000 sq ft base on the Wirral in late 2017.
It has signed a deal with Redsun Developments to lease two units at its £5.5m Power Station development at Wirral International Business Park, Bromborough, close to its current location on the business park.
In preparation for the move, the company has conducted a number of sessions with its 56 staff, using virtual reality technology to gain their input. Its design team is working with the building contractor and architect to deliver a collaborative and creative working environment, incorporating warehousing and factory facilities, which are some four times the size of the present head office.
Dean Ward, technical director of Evoke, said: “We are delighted to be committing our future to the Wirral and will take this opportunity to create a fantastic environment for further innovation and business growth. Attracting and retaining talent is key to our future success and so a vibrant and inspiring workplace is vital.
“The growth of our team has really driven this move. We have recently grown our software team as we continue to evolve our end to end offer and work with our clients to create immersive and engaging solutions for their customers.”
