Leading multi-platform technology company FOD Mobility Group has made a significant investment in a new, larger headquarters to support its accelerated growth in the UK and Europe.
The modern, four storey Waterfront Building is situated close to the River Aire near Saltaire Village in Yorkshire, a designated UNSECO World Heritage site. The tech firm moved into the spacious new premises from its previous offices on nearby Ashley Lane, which had hosted its headquarters for the past ten years.
The new people-centric workspace has been specifically designed to facilitate FOD’s flexible workplace strategy, which focuses on culture, creativity, innovation, wellbeing, and supports hybrid working with blended in-person and remote collaboration.
The move coincides with a period of rapid growth for the business, which includes significant investment in a recruitment drive this year, and the recent launch of two new office locations in Ireland and Germany. The firm also plans to expand its presence throughout Europe over the next 12 months with the launch of additional offices in France, Belgium, Spain and Holland.
FOD Mobility Group has also experienced significant financial growth recently, featuring in this year’s Financial Times’ FT 1000 list of Europe’s fastest growing companies with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 57%. The firm was also recognised as one of the top 100 fastest growing technology companies at the Northern Tech awards in June, with CEO and Founder Justin Whitston winning the prestigious Judges’ Entrepreneur award.
Justin commented on the move: “With a number of new recruits joining our team this year and more to follow, we needed a new HQ, and the Waterfront office was a perfect fit. The open plan space provides a more flexible and collaborative work environment for our people that fosters connections and creativity when they are on site and supports our flexible workplace strategy.
“We have some exciting times ahead of us and this move underlines our focus on attracting and retaining the most talented people in the industry, enabling us to provide market-leading mobility solutions that continue to meet the needs of our ever-growing customer base in the UK and overseas.”
The address for FOD Mobility Group’s new UK headquarters is: 3rd Floor, The Waterfront Building, Salts Mill Road, Shipley, West Yorkshire, BD17 7EZ.
