We are excited to announce that we have opened a new office at Fusion Hive, Teesside. The Fusion Hive business and innovation centre, located on Stockton’s Northshore has been built specifically as a hub for growing digital and technology companies.
Our expansion into Teesside follows hot on the heels of our plans to open a new HQ at the Pipewell Quay development, located on the site of the former Baja Beach Club on Gateshead Quays. The new offices will enable us to expand within the North East and increase our workforce in the process. This expansion also relates to our plans to create over 150 new local jobs as part of growth projections.
As one of the fastest-growing business communications and Cloud services providers in the UK, we were named as North East Company of the Year at the North East Business Awards, 2020.
Aspire was Launched 14 years ago by Chris Fraser and Nigel Begg, we now employ more than 180 people. Today, we have set ambitious plans for improving digital innovation across the North East.
In 2018 we launched our own full fibre North East network after investing millions in local infrastructure. Known as Ultrafast Dedicated Connectivity (UDC), we offer North East businesses internet connectivity of up to 100 gigabits per second, some of the fastest speeds and one of the most reliable services available in the UK.
We have also just recently announced our appointment by Newcastle City Council to deliver a next-generation full fibre network serving hundreds of public sector sites across the region. The infrastructure built by Aspire will enable many offshoot connections to be built right across the North East, making it easier for suppliers to offer cost effective fibre broadband to the wider community.
One of the most recent locations to benefit from our ultrafast connectivity solutions is the iconic Steel House at Teesworks. The building is currently being redeveloped to become the new base for the full transformation of the 4,500-acre Teesworks site, the UK’s biggest Freeport, which will help lead the way in clean growth technologies, renewables and advanced manufacturing.
Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “Digital connectivity is at the heart of our long-term plans to grow our economy in response to coronavirus. Having widely available, high-speed, affordable and reliable connectivity will help our businesses to go further faster, and we’ve seen how vital this is during the pandemic. Aspire have already made great progress towards improving digital innovation across the region. I’m delighted to welcome them to Steel House and the region.”
Justin Godfrey, sales manager at Aspire said, “At Aspire we are dedicated to delivering technology like no other. We have ambitious plans to improve the connectivity and cloud performance available to North East businesses. Our new office based in the technology hub of Teesside is perfectly geared to help us deliver our plans, we are really excited about the move.”
