Bamboo HQ to relocate to new premises at Gloucestershire College
- Move marks the next step in partnership and collaboration with the College
- Key milestone in supporting Bamboo’s growth and continued buy and build strategy
Cheltenham, June 2020: Bamboo Technology Group Ltd (Bamboo), a leading provider of IoT, connectivity, data, managed IT and cyber security solutions announces the next step in a growing partnership with Gloucestershire College.
The business is set to move its operations into 9,500 square feet of modern office space at the College’s Cheltenham Campus, which is located just a stone’s throw away from GCHQ and the new Cyber Business Park development.
The move will double Bamboo’s current capacity and place it on the doorstep of increasing new talent, skills and services, with the 60-strong team planning to join the campus in September (subject to it being re-open before then).
Work is currently being carried out to separate and transform the space and facilities to provide tech hubs, client workshop space, system configuration areas and more to diversify Bamboo’s working environment; accommodating different teams and ways of working as the company continues to expand.
“This is a very exciting move for the business and an essential milestone in enabling us to achieve our ambitious growth plans and continued buy and build strategy” commented Lorrin White, Managing Director of Bamboo.
“The team at Bamboo are also looking forward to working closely with Gloucestershire College” she continued. “Collaboration and education are key elements in attracting new talent into our industry and driving innovation and the College have afforded us a fantastic opportunity to work with them in a technology hot spot that will nurture and educate a critical talent pool.
“We will of course ensure our own teams take advantage of the increased cyber courses becoming available too and hope to provide reciprocal education opportunities as our respective focus on technology, cyber and digital develops.”
Andy Bates, Chief Financial Officer at Gloucestershire College, added: “We’re excited to strengthen our partnership with such a thriving, industry-leading company as Bamboo, particularly during this period of adjustment and uncertainty in business.
“With Cheltenham Campus forming part of the town’s growing reputation as the cyber capital of the UK, thanks to the recent launch of our cyber degree apprenticeship, it makes perfect sense for Bamboo to make the most of our location, facilities and services.
“We look forward to welcoming the team, when it is safe to do so.”
