OrderWise expands into new £1.3m extension

This story is over

Saxilby software specialist OrderWise has completed work and expanded into its new 14,000 square foot extension, following a £1.3 million investment.

The company has almost doubled the floor space at its Newton Court premises.

Staff from its sales, marketing, client services, support and reports teams are all settling into the new building, which has been under construction since June.

This office extension, completed by Kuno Jackson Building Limited, comes after a busy period of recruitment for the company, where the headcount has increased from 80 in 2015 to more than 165 today.

David Hallam, Director and founder of OrderWise, said: “Having experienced rapid growth over the last few years, we found that we had quite literally outgrown our existing premises.

“We’ve not only got a fantastic new building that’s seamlessly linked to the rest of the office, but we also have ample room for our 165 staff.”

OrderWise has also purchased land opposite the premises to use as a car park for its ever-growing workforce.

In addition to this, the company now has a larger mock warehouse, a simulation area designed to train new staff and improve existing OrderWise software.

David added: “As OrderWise has grown over the years, our workforce has increased considerably.

“When you come to work, you want to be motivated as well as comfortable, so in addition to the bright and spacious new offices, we’re opening a staff canteen within the new building later in the year.”
