Software firm makes move to Manchester city centre as headcount grows

One of the UK’s fastest-growing SaaS scaleups Lunio has moved into Hyphen Building in Manchester city centre.

Lunio, represented by workspace advice specialist Level, has taken 5,000 sq ft on the fourth floor of the Grade A office on Mosley Street.

Headcount at Lunio has grown by 168% to 78 in the past 12 months, prompting the move to Manchester from Chorley.

Neil Andrew, co-founder and CEO of Lunio, said: “This move signals the next stage in our scaleup journey.

“We have a larger pool of talent to attract staff from, larger space to accommodate our growing needs and now have a much more central location for events and client visits.”

He added: “Manchester boasts a great, rapidly growing tech scene whilst retaining the feeling of a small, close-knit community.

“There are massive tech success stories here with Matillion, AO and Boohoo to name three, and the tech scene is only growing larger all the time.”

Further hires are expected but the business says the primary focus will be enhancing its product.

Joe Averill, founder of Level, said: “Lunio is a scale-up that seems to instinctively get how to make hybrid working work.

“Having been based in Chorley they wanted a prime Manchester city centre location with everything for their employees on their doorstep.

“Level was delighted to advise Lunio and its founders and we wish them all the best as their impressive journey continues at Hyphen.”
