An Altrincham business dedicated to supporting SMEs has opened a new HQ after enjoying ‘exponential growth’ over the past year – with further expansion plans now targeted.
Add People is one of the town’s largest employers, offering affordable digital marketing services to small and medium-sized firms.
It has been trading for 17 years, and after enjoying major recent growth, has unveiled a new 3,000 sq ft office for its 140 staff.
Grant Barton, Co-Chairman of Add People said: “The success we have seen with two significant new product launches over the last 12 months and the growth of the team, has given us the confidence and support we have needed to grow as a business.
“With plans for international expansion in the coming year and with additional investment in the business we see a promising forecast for sustainable growth.”
This year has seen Add People launch two new products to support the growth of their clients’ businesses online, making strides within the industry by making it easier for small business to navigate Google products and to gain online reviews.
Internationally, the firm is already offering services in South Africa, Australia and Ireland, and this year plans to launch the new SaaS products in the US.
It is the launch of these new products which has led the business to expand significantly, creating 25 new jobs in the the past 12 months, and with plans afoot to create an additional 25 roles in 2020.
Altrincham MP Sir Graham Brady cut the ribbon on the firm’s new office this week, and said: “From when I last visited here eight years ago to seeing the spectacular growth, from fewer than 50 people to around 140 people today is an amazing achievement.
“The fact that it is a business that focuses on helping small business to grow, ensures the work that they are doing is helping so many other people to prosper and thrive. In helping these companies grow from being start-ups to becoming successful bigger businesses, they are helping the whole of the economy.”
