Yorkshire tech firm lands new space with digital workshop

A specialist lighting firm is moving premises from west Yorkshire to The Seam campus in central Barnsley.

Binary Forge engineers software to help businesses connect devices and integrate IT systems. It specialises in developing ‘internet-of-things’ (IoT) dashboards which manage and monitor smart resources, such as lighting, across global sites.

The new workspace includes The Seam’s Maker Lab, a fully-equipped digital tech workshop.

CEO Glenn Pugh said: “We were blown away when we saw the Maker Lab. We plan to make good use of that to test out new ideas and create prototypes for more IoT solutions.”

Discussing the businesses move Glenn said: “We had a fantastic start to the business in our first year before COVID-19 hit, working with several big brand High Street names to transform the way they manage their lighting across sites.

“We now want to pick up on that and help others benefit from working with integrated technology systems to develop smarter buildings, not just in lighting but in other aspects too.”

Barnsley digital media centre manager, Tracey Johnson said: “We were absolutely delighted when Binary Forge got in touch about moving to the DMC and can’t wait to join in their business journey and support growth.

“Innovation, problem-solving and using IoT digital technology to make the world a better place is key to Binary Forge’s business plan. They will fit right in here.”
