Scottish IT company expands with new Accrington facility

Michael Field of Workflo Solutions with Hyndburn Council Leader, Cllr Miles Parkinson

IT services provider Workflo Solution has expanded its operations in the region with a move to a 4,000 sq ft facility in East Lancashire.

The company will be based out of the Rising Bridge Business Park in Accrington, with plans in place to increase its workforce in the coming months.

Workflo Solutions, which is headquartered in Livingston, near Edinburgh, provides a range of outsourced business support service technologies for customers across the UK including document management; print, scanning and VOIP telephony, IT support, data security and cloud computing.

It opened its first office outside Scotland 18 months ago, identifying the North West region as the most appropriate location to establish its first regional hub.

Its move to Accrington underlines “the exponential growth” Workflo Solutions has achieved in the region in a short timeframe.

Michael Field, managing director, said: “Rising Bridge Business Park is a great location for the next chapter in our development.

“The past 18 months has told us we were correct to establish a hub in the north west of England and as the country gradually unlocks from the pandemic, we’ll be ready to meet customers at our new showroom suite to help them refine their requirements as they adapt to a changing work environment.

“Accrington is an ideal location providing 4,000 sq ft across two floors – combining a reception and open plan office area on ground level, together with a full product showroom and document digitisation suite on the upper floor.

“This will shortly allow us to increase our staff complement as well, with five new positions immediately earmarked for the new facility.”

In addition to its Livingston headquarters and its new facility in Accrington, the company has offices in Glasgow, and Aberdeen.
