Economit

IT consultancy moves to bigger base

Bondholder and IT consultancy firm Economit has moved to a bigger base and taken on new staff as business continues to grow.

Formed in September 2011, the firm has now taken a lease on larger premises, The Colour Shed, at Darley Abbey Mills, to cope with expansion.

The company's work focuses on providing digital transformation services which include everything from IT infrastructure and networking to mobile technologies and unified communications, all strategically integrated with saving costs and improving process efficiencies in mind, hence the name Economit.

Since it started the company has achieved savings of more than £1.5m for clients – mainly in the leisure, professional services, and distribution and manufacturing sectors across The Midlands.

Before leaving the previous office, Economit recruited two new staff – Charlotte Clifford as project co-ordinator, and Rob Marshall as principal consultant who can go into companies as an IT director.

Since moving the company has recruited Nick Briars as head of project delivery.

Now the company is looking to take on an associate consultant and an apprentice administrator.

As part ofits growth and development the company recently achieved ISO 9001, a quality management standard accreditation.

GCI move into World Heritage Site

Bondholder Company GCI have officially moved into their new offices, located in the picturesque Darley Abbey Mills.

Dating back to the 1700s, the newly refurbished Grade 1 listed Mills became home to GCI following a substantial £1.2 million investment. The computer technology firm currently employs over 200 staff nationally, with many located in Derby and working in the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

GCI's move into the 5,000 sq ft offices was brokered by Bondholder agents Salloway Property Consultants.

The Mills have now become home to a number of Bondholder companies including, Brewer Science, Economit, Stimulating Minds and The Birchover Residences.

To mark their move the company will be throwing an official opening event on Thursday 3rd December at 4:30pm. This is your chance to meet the team for a few nibbles, drinks, and product demonstrations.
