Simoda site move set to create 50 new jobs
A Sheffield-based IT and innovative technology company is set to create 50 new jobs over the next two years following its move to a new site at Kelham Island.
Simoda Technology Solutions, which provides cloud services and IT solutions, has made the move to a 6,500 sq. ft site on Burton Road.
The new site is nearly triple the size of the company’s current office space at Eagle Works in Kelham Island.
Having previously assisted Simoda with the lease on its Eagle Works premises, specialist property law solicitor Mason Thomas Law has negotiated the 10-year lease with a five-year break clause on the new premises.
The move to The Maltings at 81 Burton Road, which comprises two floors and an annex building, futureproofs the business for the next five years.
As part of the company’s growth ambitions it hopes to establish a training academy on the second floor of the new building. The academy will provide training for 18 – 22 year-olds who want to break into the technology industry.
Daniel Bumby, Managing Director of Simoda, said: “It was really important for us to remain in Kelham Island. It offers everything we need to enable us to continue to grow and attract future employees, from car parking to bars and restaurants for after work socialising and team building.
“In just over four years we have gone from strength to strength. The new office location gives us a fantastic platform to expand our business, create even more jobs and continue to provide a fantastic service to our customers.”
The company, which currently employs 35 people, was established in 2019 and has grown year-on-year after being established by founders Daniel Bumby and Jason Garner.
Cathy Thomas, solicitor and managing director of Mason Thomas Law said: “We were delighted to be able to assist Daniel and Jason in securing the new premises for Simoda.
The growth and journey of their business has been phenomenal, and we feel honoured to have been able to play a very small part in this.“
Daniel added: “I really value vendor and supplier relationships and there is a real alignment between Mason Thomas Law and Simoda. Our respective approaches to business enable us to achieve a better end result for our clients and stand out in the marketplace.”
Unlike other technology companies, Simoda’s sales team is not incentivised by commission.
“Our focus is finding the right solution for the client and providing an excellent work-life balance for our staff,” added Daniel.
Simoda aims to be fully operational at the new Burton Road site by the end of October.
