Full service digital marketing agency 9xb.com has doubled the size of its headquarters after acquiring a building next to its existing premises.
The deal means the firm will now be the sole occupier of the property at Harrogate Business Park, adding an extra 3,000ft sq and giving overall capacity for up to 60 staff.
The expansion follows a number of high profile design, digital marketing, SEO and social media projects for the firm, including work for Marks and Spencer, Hi-Tec Sports, Safestore UK, Mars and Total.
Managing director Rob Burns, who launched the business with Rob Reeve in 2004, said the agency had grown significantly since moving to its existing site in 2008 and has plans to expand further over the next three years.
“Our biggest growth areas are in search, paid advertising, digital marketing and social media, and our team is currently involved in developing some innovative national online campaigns,” he said.
“We operate in a very buoyant and dynamic industry, and the challenge now is to ensure we maintain our position and strengthen our expertise through the ongoing development of our staff and continued growth of our team.”
He added that the new office space, which was negotiated with Carter Jonas, would be used to house the firm’s digital marketing suite and that a number of key appointments to the team would be announced later this year.
