Glasgow-based The BiP Group, a provider of business intelligence solutions for the public and private sectors, has launched its new North of England office in the Media City area of Manchester.
The new building, named Pacific House, will be open for business on 15 May. It will house two of the BiP Group’s brands, Ingenium and Promark Media, which have been acquired over the last two years.
Ingenium, which employs 35 staff and was previously based in Stockport, is a specialist in lead generation, content creation, data, surveys and online events, with clients including BT, Capita, KPMG, Deloitte, Hays, Apple and IBM.
Promark Media, which employs 30 staff and was previously based in Chorley, is one of the UK’s leading construction media companies with an established portfolio of digital magazines and online channels.
The bringing together of these brands in one central location will support BiP Group’s ambitious growth plans for them; as well as providing a presence in the North of England for other BiP brands.
Simon Burges, CEO of the BiP Group, said:
“I am delighted to announce the launch of BiP’s new North of England office in the Media City area of Manchester.
“The decision to expand our business presence into Manchester, and bring both of our recent acquisitions into one central location, was the next logical step in our growth and development strategy.
“Media City is a business growth area and our new location in Manchester will provide an excellent opportunity to further develop and expand our footprint across the North of England.”
Grahame Steed, Managing Director of Media and Marketing Solutions at BiP said:
“This is an exciting opportunity and one that gives us the space to grow and develop these businesses; each of which has tremendous potential.”
