Growing IT services company snaps up trio of offices in converted mill

Yorkshire IT and telephony expert, Probado, has signed a lease on the Globe Mill building in Slaithwaite, West Yorkshire, as it continues to expand its operations.

The move sees the company take on three offices within the mill across a combined space of 900 sq feet, with a £30,000 investment into fitting out the premises.

Thanks to continued revenue growth, increasing its client portfolio by 20% this year, and the expansion of its technical services team with three new starters in the last 12 months, a larger space was required for the firm, which celebrates its 17th birthday this year.

The partnership with Globe Mills was strengthened when Probado won a contract to support The Globe, and some of its clients, with network and telephony services.

Gordon Maclean, director and co-founder, said: “We are excited about this move to The Globe which provides us with the space and facilities to support our growing team and ambitions.

“The location in Slaithwaite town centre offers brilliant local food and shopping options, walking routes and rail links and we are confident that it will be a great place for the team and customers alike.

“We have invested in new furnishings and barista training for all staff from Darkwoods Coffee, a local brand renowned for its high-quality coffee, to ensure we are creating a happy, modern and attractive environment for our team to work from.

“We’re also thrilled with the new IT contract with The Globe, this further solidifies our relationship with them, providing us both with new and exciting opportunities to flourish and support fellow West Yorkshire businesses.”

Established in 2007, Probado provides IT services including networking, hosting, printing, telephony, IoT services, training and integration services to companies across north of England.

Its client base includes both commercial businesses and third sector organisations.
