ISP Origin Broadband Invest £2.5m in New Rotherham Office

Monday, January 22nd, 2018 (11:21 am) - Score 1,521

South Yorkshire-based UK ISP Origin Broadband has announced an investment of £2.5m into opening a new premises (53,665 sq. ft) at Callflex Business Park in Rotherham, which could in theory cope with 700 people and help the ISP to reach their target of 250,000 customers by 2020.

Origin has recently gone through somewhat of a growth spurt after receiving a large injection of Private Equity funding from Calculus Capital (worth around £5m), although it hasn’t all been plain sailing and earlier this month we reported on news of recent job losses (here). Customer satisfaction also appears to have taken a dip during 2017 but Origin will hopefully now be working to improve matters.

Today the ISP added that 98% of Origins’ employees have confirmed they will be moving to the new site, while the company said they will be offering CV workshops to those who have to look for work elsewhere. The new office also suggests that Origin could be gearing up to hire more staff in the future.

Denise Lelliott, Rotherham’s Cabinet Member for the Local Economy, said:

“We would like to welcome Origin Broadband to Rotherham – with plans to create many hundreds of jobs over the coming years the company will make a huge contribution to our growing local economy here in the borough.

Rotherham’s flexible and skilled workforce is proving irresistible to service sector and manufacturing companies alike, and we look forward to building on the relationship between the Council and this exciting new investor in our borough as their new operation expands.”

Oliver Bryssau, CEO of Origin, said:

“We are really excited about Origins’ Head Office moving to Manvers. Doncaster has been a fantastic home for us, but our two current sites are no longer big enough to accommodate our future growth plans. Having both our Residential and Business divisions under one roof will help us share best practice across the whole of Origin.

Trips have been put on for colleagues to visit the new building and everyone has been impressed with its size and the opportunity it provides for future growth.”

End.
