We're delighted to announce that we've now bought the 18th century office building that forms our home in the heart of Sheffield. Completing a journey that saw us move into the premises back in 2009, we couldn't be happier with the news.
It reflects what has been a superb period of growth for the company. Now, as we secure the building as our own, we can continue our journey from a base that has become intrinsically-linked with all things Evoluted.
As the purchase went through, we couldn't help but think back on how far we've come since our initial establishment back in 2006. Then, our Managing Director Ash Young and Director Gareth Davies set out to leave their mark on the web world from Evoluted's original home at Tapton Park Innovation Centre.
As the work began to roll in, it was only natural that the team itself grew; and a move into larger offices became a necessity. Around this time, Ash and Gareth took the decision to move to Sheffield, taking up residence on the bottom floor of our current offices.
By 2011, our operations had grown to require floor space on all 3 floors within the building. This ultimately encouraged some contemporary, stylish refurbishment, which subsequently transformed the interior of each level.
The completed meeting room, in particular, quickly became a hallmark of our operations and continues to remain somewhere both new and existing clients are delighted to visit.
Fittingly, the purchase of the building comes in what is actually our 10th year as an agency.
Having initially set out with a primary focus on web design and development, we have since grown to develop a marketing team that have continued our exemplary standards of work.
It is the quality of the work we do for our clients - and the results that we subsequently help them to achieve - that has enabled us to evolve to our current level. Without delivering the high rates of satisfaction that we do, we wouldn't have been able to take this latest leap of faith.
We're now confident that the move to buy the offices will only strengthen our position as a company. Summarising the move, Ash Young said:
"We couldn't think of a more perfect way to celebrate our 10th anniversary year as a company. The purchase is just reward for the hard work that everyone here at Evoluted has put in ever since we began.
"Moving forward, we're determined not to rest on our laurels. It is now our aim to strengthen our position as a leading web agency for the region and we're relishing the challenge ahead."
