NEW jobs have been created with more potentially on the way thanks to a business support company's recent expansion.

This comes as Edinburgh-based Workflo Solutions, which provides IT support, document scanning, document management and a range of other services to other companies, has now moved into a new facility on the Rising Bridge Business Park in Rossendale, having moved from Saddleworth in Oldham.

The firm, established in 2007, is hoping to recruit five new members of staff with more job openings possible in the near future.

Managing director Michael Fields said: “Rising Bridge Business Park is a great location for the next chapter in our development.

"The past 18 months has told us we were correct to establish a hub in the north west of England and as the country gradually unlocks from the pandemic, we’ll be ready to meet customers at our new showroom suite to help them refine their requirements as they adapt to a changing work environment."

The company, headquartered in Livingston, near Edinburgh, opened its first office outside Scotland eighteen months ago, identifying the North West of England as the most appropriate location to establish its first regional hub.

Its full range of services consists of document management; print, scanning and VOIP Telephony, IT support, data security and cloud computing.

Staff are employed as members of regional sales and account management teams, field engineers, marketing support and as core administrative staff members.

Mr Field hopes that the expansion has demonstrated how the company has continued to prosper, even after the economic devastation wrought by the coronavirus pandemic.

He said: "Accrington is an ideal location providing 4000 square feet across two floors, combining a reception and open plan office area on ground level, together with a full product showroom and document digitisation suite on the upper floor.

"This will shortly allow us to increase our staff complement as well, with five new positions immediately earmarked for the new facility.”

In addition to its Livingston headquarters and its new facility in Accrington, the company has offices in Glasgow, and Aberdeen.
