We’ve been in our new Bristol office for nearly two months now. The Quorum is spacious, bright and is the perfect fit for our next business chapter.
After 25 years in our Bath office, it was definitely a big change for the whole team but the move offers huge potential for the company's growth plans.
With expansive views over Bristol, the new office is also designed to maximise internal collaboration. We collaborated with Dr Harriet Shortt, Associate Professor in Organisation Studies at Bristol Business School, UWE, during the office move to design the optimum office environment. Bristol is renowned for its creative and tech focus, with the industry contributing around 10% to the local economy (source: Bristol 24/7, 2017).
Founded in 1993, Armadillo saw the potential to develop a business that provides motivating and inspiring customer journeys, working with pioneering brands such as Blockbusters. Now as a team of 30, we introduce and run innovative CRM strategies for major brands. On a positive growth trajectory, our turnover has grown by £1 million in the last five years and we aim to double in size by 2021.
Our Executive Chairman, Chris Thurling, commented: “The Bath office was bursting at the seams and to fulfil our growth plans, moving to Bristol was a natural step. Inspiration is on our doorstep, with creative networks such as Bristol Media and facilities like Pervasive Media Studio, the VR lab and Engine Shed. As well as giving us space to expand and encouraging further collaboration, relocation has also given us access to a new pool of world class, creative talent in a vibrant, connected city.”
