The former North East company of the year has invested heavily in staff and infrastructure
As an award-winning IT managed service provider and internet service provider (ISP), Aspire delivers leading technology solutions across a range of solutions, including cloud, connectivity, technical support, cyber security and professional services. The company already has a large network of customers across the UK, and has seen significant growth, as it supported a wide range of businesses with the switch to home working in 2020.
The 15-year-old business has published accounts for their financial year ended 2021, showing rise in turnover to £24.7m.
Aspire, who were crowned North East business of the year 2020, has recently opened its new HQ at the 30,000 sq ft Pipewell Quay development, based on the site of the former iconic Baja Beach Club, Gateshead Quays.
Pipewell Quay was designed by awardwinning Newcastle-based architects Ryder, and has undergone significant redevelopment by Adderstone Group. The building, which spans three floors, incorporates state of the art office space, break-out zones and meeting rooms, each aptly named after influential innovators from tech and the North East.
Known for its dedication to each and every customer, Aspire ensures its services are second to none, through strategic investment and forward thinking. One of the key drivers of their growth has been their multi-million-pound investment in a full fibre North East network, known as UDC (Ultrafast Dedicated Connectivity).
UDC is a next generation, affordable leased line internet connectivity solution with dedicated bandwidth levels of up to 100 gigabits per second. These are some of the fastest connectivity speeds available in the UK, combined with extremely low latency.
