Moray tech firm expands in Forres and London
Moray based digital telecoms company Fibre 1 is expanding its UK wide business network, with new space at the Enterprise Park Forres and at Scotland House in London.
The firm, which has its own fibre network, delivers high speed broadband, wireless ethernet and telephony services. In recent months, it has announced key additions to its team and has landed lucrative contracts in the offshore sector.
The move to the Enterprise Park Forres provides the opportunity to expand to meet the ongoing demand for faster broadband products. The business offers full project delivery, with customer service capability. Fibre and VOIP projects have been delivered across the UK from Stornoway to London.
Stewart MacDonald, managing director, said: “As part of our strategic growth plans the decision to move into the excellent facilities at Horizon Scotland in Forres was an important one.
“As a business and innovation centre, Horizon Scotland provides a great environment for technology companies.
“Also, due to a growing UK channel partner base, Fibre 1 has taken space at the prestigious Scotland House in London. This will allow more partners to engage with and access great pricing with excellent customer service. Fibre 1 takes great pride in its Moray roots and views the move to new office facilities as a positive one to further develop our plans.”
Highlands and Islands Enterprise is working with the company on its growth strategy. Scott McKnockiter at HIE, commented: “Fibre 1 works with businesses which are looking for specialist advice on connectivity and technology to allow them to work more efficiently.
“They provide customised solutions, and also work with a growing number of channel partners across the UK to successfully deliver a bespoke portfolio tailored to individual business requirements. We’re delighted to see Fibre 1 growing its operation from Moray.”
