Apexon Opens New UK Tech Hub in Sunderland
15 September, 2023
Apexon, a digital-first technology services company, has opened a new state-of-art facility in Sunderland, UK, to help it meet the growing demand for its digital products and services in the UK.
Apexon, which specialises in delivering technology services that accelerate business transformation, will base its UK headquarters in the city centre's rapidly transforming Riverside Sunderland area.
The timing follows a recent announcement from the UK government demonstrating near-record levels of funding in the UK tech sector, which is home to the greatest number of high-growth companies in Europe.
The new 5,700 sq ft facility located at The Beam supports Apexon's plan to continue investing in the UK and Europe over the coming years as it looks to provide its clients with greater access to its world-renowned digital experts.
The move will also see Apexon join Ocado, the world's largest online grocer and software engineering company, asset55 at the business hub, as well as North East Screen, the region's TV and film screen body.
"We are really excited to expand our presence in the UK, a vibrant technology hub at the forefront of global digital evolution," said Rob Gwyther, Managing Director, Apexon UK.
"We look forward to partnering with organisations as their technology partner of choice to help them navigate their digital transformation journeys and create meaningful competitive differentiation.
"Our Sunderland headquarters will help us gain access to the best and brightest digital engineering and technology talent in the region and we reaffirm our commitment to creating a robust, inclusive culture that will help our employees grow and thrive."
Since it first opened an office in the Sunderland area in 2014, Apexon has worked closely with the local community to hone talent and create growth. In that time, the team has grown from 25 to over 150 employees, engaging with UK customers as well as the company's global client base. More recently, Apexon UK has been certified as a Great Place to Work® and helped to drive digital skills development in the region by partnering with Sunderland College to provide on-the-job training for T-level students.
The accolade marked the first time Apexon has achieved the recognition in the United Kingdom, with the global business being awarded the accolade for the seventh consecutive year. The recognition is based exclusively on feedback from current employees and benchmarked against industry parameters and selection criteria that include a Trust Index™ Survey. The survey analyses employee perceptions of the organisation's credibility, fairness, and culture.
Patrick Melia, chief executive of Sunderland City Council, said: "Apexon's expansion into its new office space demonstrates the growth and development opportunities that digital services offer in Sunderland.
"With its new headquarters in Riverside Sunderland, Apexon is the latest global brand to realise the area's potential. We are delighted to have worked with them to secure their new home."
