A Scottish company focussed on digital transformation has opened a new office on Newcastle Helix.
Digital Technologies Group (DTG) helps business transform productivity and manufacturing capacity through digitalisation.
Its expansion will support the burgeoning pharma manufacturing sector in the North East, where STG can access local talent and create jobs for the future.
The new office is located in The Catalyst building, a £50 million facility made up of an ecosystem of businesses and organisations such as the UK’s National Innovation Centre for Ageing and the National Innovation Centre for Data.
As specialists in digital transformation, DTG will benefit from the ecosystem that fosters collaboration between the public sector, academics and like-minded businesses.
With an increasingly client base in the North East, the company will use the new office as a springboard for its ambitious growth plans.
DTG managing director, Ian Allan, said: “We are delighted to see our office in Newcastle finally open.
“When we started DTG in Irvine, just under two years ago, increasing our presence across the UK was always a key part of our ambitious and aggressive growth strategy.
“It is testament to the hard work and efforts of all the team, that we have reached this milestone so quickly.”
Steve Caughey, director of the National Innovation Centre for Data said: “We are excited to welcome DTG into The Catalyst and our ecosystem of companies with data expertise.
“We share their interest in helping organisations get more value from their data and look forward to partnering with them on joint events and innovative new projects.”
Jennifer Hartley, director of Invest Newcastle, added: “The arrival of DTG into The Catalyst on Newcastle Helix is testament to the confidence businesses have in our city as a place to locate and grow their business.
“They are exactly the type of vibrant, innovative organisation we are trying to attract.”
