Article date: Fri, 09 May 2008 15:05 GMT
UKFast's new offices were officially opened this week by the Mayor of Denbigh. Colin Hughes made the journey from North Wales on Wednesday to cut the ribbon, opening the offices atop City Tower, Manchester.
The hosting provider moved into the new premises to accommodate its increasing staff numbers. Employees now amount to over fifty, and with 2008's drive UKFast intends to double this by the end of the year.
MD of UKFast, Lawrence Jones, asked Mayor Hughes to do the honours as he grew up in the Denbigh area.
“We're looking to the future in using these offices but it was great to get the mayor here from Denbigh because he represents my past,” said Lawrence. “It was a reminder of how far the company has come, and very fitting for the occasion.”
Employees gathered to celebrate the official opening of the new UKFast home, which includes a state of the art board room, light and airy open plan working facilities and a videocast production suite.
The site also includes a games room with pool and ping pong tables, a wide screen TV and Nintendo Wii for use during staff break times.
From UKFast's 28th floor aspect employees and clients alike are able to look out over panoramic views of North West England; from Wales to the Peak District. It is the highest office space in the region.
The interior of UKFast is decorated with leather furnishings and its walls adorned with local artwork, including pieces by the famous Salfordian, LS Lowry.
