Managed ICT service provider Air-IT has relocated its headquarters to a 5,400 sq ft premises at Interchange 25 Business Park, Nottingham, owned by Hortons’ Estate.

By retaining its previous 4,000 sq ft head offices at Nottingham Business Park, the company has more than doubled its footprint in line with its growth strategy to increase current turnover to £10m and the size of its workforce to 100 by 2022.

“The decision to relocate supports our continued growth and ambitious plans for the future,” said James Healey, managing director of Air-IT.

He added: “Since we were founded in 2005, we’ve enjoyed consistent high growth of 30% year on year. As a result, we needed more room to accommodate our growing team and to help us attract and retain the best talent.

“With 45 staff at present, we plan to create 10 new jobs by 2018 taking headcount to 55, so will soon be looking for new people to join our technical and back office teams.”

Mark Tomlinson, an associate director at commercial property consultancy, FHP said: “When we were invited to take the agency role on at this site, these buildings required a level of modernisation and Hortons has carried out an excellent quality of refurbishment and are now reaping the rewards for their efforts. These are now some of the best quality offices in the area.”

Jeremy Boothroyd from Hortons’ added: “We’re pleased to welcome Air-IT to Interchange 25. They are a successful, growing IT business and their presence on the park will complement the existing mix of tenants.”
