"World-leading" digital firm joins growing Teesside business hub

A digital business which works with the likes of The Wall Street Journal and The Times has expanded to a new Middlesbrough base.

WordPress agency Big Bite has relocated to the regenerated area of Albert North as part of its plan to expand the team over the next three years.

Comprising more than 6,000 sq ft, the firm’s new first-floor office includes a range of workspaces and meeting rooms to be used for networking and training events, including Big Bite’s engineer training program which launched earlier in the year.

Iain McPherson, CEO and founder of Big Bite, commented: “We had been looking for office space for some time, and had explored a number of options to accommodate our planned growth.

“We knew we wanted to stay local, ideally within the town’s digital and creative cluster, and Albert North provided the perfect solution.”

“Our business operates globally, but our roots are firmly in Middlesbrough. The fact Albert North has been designed to specifically attract ambitious digital and creative businesses working alongside smaller independents and food outlets made it even more appealing for us.

“Even with the current backdrop of Covid-19, we’re very lucky to be continuing with our recruitment plans thanks to a number of new projects.”

Big Bite is the latest digital business to join the Albert Road development, which was transformed by property specialist Jomast almost two years ago.

Mark Hill, commercial property director at Jomast, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Big Bite to 16/26. The fact that this world-leading business has chosen Albert North as its new home is testament to the expanding digital and creative hub we have created.

“Since regeneration of the area started, we have welcomed numerous other high-profile businesses, including Mabo and Salesfire.

“All the upper floor space at 16/26 is now fully occupied, and our focus remains on letting the ground-floor units which are suitable for a variety of uses such as food and beverage operators, independent retailers as well as office space.”
