Growth, growth and more growth for successful IT firm

Wimbledon customer IT firm SpecTronics is expanding again after a upgrading office in the summer, doubling the size of his original business unit.

We’re delighted to report one of our successful customers is expanding yet again, after upgrading offices in the summer. 

IT firm, SpecTronics moved into our Lombard Business Park in Wimbledon at the very start of 2014 and has expanded into its third office space before the year has ended.

SpecTronics UK acts as an outsourced IT supplier offering to help businesses and home users, with their web, telecommunications and computing needs.

A series of new contract wins has resulted in company founder, Ben Spector, securing office accommodation double the size of his original business unit, from 150 square feet to 360 square feet and more than tripled the number of desks within it, from two to seven, to accommodate for the growth of the SpecTronics team. Originally, Ben had used a virtual office with Bizspace before moving into his first commercial premises.

Smooth move

Ben says Bizspace’s focus on flexible working has helped the firm achieve its rapid business growth.

He comments: “Bizspace has made it really easy for us to grow so quickly. The flexible short-term licence and straight forward contract, allowed us to upgrade our office space painlessly. We closed an hour early on a Friday to move office units and were open by 9am on the Monday, ready for business.

“The new office is fantastic and has plenty of space for our expanding team. We are recruiting for two more service desk staff to support the service we provide to existing clients.”

On 1 December, SpecTronics appointed Director of Sales and Marketing, Dion Brereton, who will use his extensive experience to head up a brand new sales team, streamline the marketing element of the business and ensure the consistency of the SpecTronics brand.

After such an eventful year, Ben is maintaining momentum with his plans for the company for 2015.

Ben explains: “I am very excited about the success of SpecTronics and increasing the size of the team this year. We are making that transition from a small business to a larger company and I am keen to uphold a culture that offers a personal approach to clients - something that our current customers value.

“The New Year will hopefully see our brand new sales team move into a separate office, as I feel it is important for them to have a dedicated space to do what they do best.”
