A progressive NW technology firm is celebrating a special ‘jubilee’ after taking a major step forward.

Holker IT has re-located to impressive new headquarters in Burnley – a move which has also seen investment of around £100,000 in additional staffing and equipment.

The transfer to Jubilee House on Phoenix Way comes eight years after managing director Matthew Metcalfe first helped to establish the company in Colne.

“Our new premises are a perfect fit in terms of location, capability and image,” said Matthew. “This is an exciting time for us as we look to move up another level. We have received great support from the local authority in Burnley and already feel very much at home.”

The renowned cyber security experts invited Miranda Barker, chief executive of the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce, to perform the official opening ceremony.

“It was great that Miranda could take time out to do the honours for us and she was very interested to learn of our on-going plans. Indeed, we are now looking to link up with the Chamber for a cyber security seminar here later in the year.”

Miranda said: “Holker IT has earned a reputation as a technology firm with serious credentials, not least in the field of cyber security. It is also very pleasing to see a firm with its roots firmly in East Lancashire continuing to grow and develop in our region.”
