A Stockton-based engineering consultancy has targeted further growth and job creation following its move to a recently-established business centre.
Civil and Structural Engineering practice, Yendalls Engineering, has become the latest tenant at Odyssey Systems’ Preston Farm business complex, after undergoing a complete refurbishment, which created office space for business tenants.
Yendalls, which previously operated out of the Southland Centre in Middlesbrough, required the additional space to fulfil its long-term expansion plans.
Established in 2012, the firm currently employs five staff, as well as a part-time consultant, and following the move to new premises, expects the potential to double the workforce in the near future.
Yendalls founder David Yendall said: “We have worked closely with Odyssey Systems in the past, so when the opportunity became available to move to a fully-functional and extremely high quality office setting, it was an easy decision to move.
“It is the perfect working environment for our team, and gives us the opportunity to operate and service our clients both locally and nationally, with excellent transport links close by.
“I am now looking to build-on this period of positivity and strengthen our existing team as the company continues to grow and we look to the future.”
Telecommunications firm, Odyssey Systems created the business centre as it redeveloped its own HQ, which was officially opened by James Wharton MP earlier in the year.
The 20,000 sq.ft centre is already the home of three SMEs, with Yendalls becoming the fourth business to operate from the site and other regional companies expressing an interest to relocate there.
The site offers businesses a comprehensive telecommunications service, which includes hosted telephony and a fully-synchronous, uncontended Ethernet connection, as well as fingerprint recognition access systems to provide increased security for tenants.
