We have moved! Official office opening

The Move      

The search for a new office space started in January 2015, as it became apparent that we were quickly outgrowing our abode of 3 years in Office Ireland. During this time, two small 2/3 person offices had evolved into multifunctional spaces which were all of a sudden housing a customer support centre, a shipping depot, a monitoring station, a hardware configuration and storage area, filing systems…oh and a staff of 10 people! Though we would miss our friends, location and convenient amenities (such as our custom meeting room in the form of Delish Café downstairs!), it was evident that we needed more space.

After viewing multiple sites, the search ended after we were taken by a space in the National Technology Park in Plassey. Once secured, the moving preparations quickly commenced. The walls were adorned with our company colours, office furniture, which included bespoke Italian furniture for the boardroom, was ordered from local supplier Cemac Office Solutions, and yes you heard correctly – we now have a boardroom! (We’ve moved up in the world!). All of our branding requirements were taken care of by Newtone Group which included indoor and outdoor signage and an amazing glass partition embellished with our company logo. This glass structure enhanced the entire office space by partially separating the open plan technical support area from the administration office and boardroom. By April, we had moved to our new offices and were reaping the benefits of the new space.

The Celebration

In NTES we value dearly the unwavering support we have had from customers and friends over the past few years and wanted to host an event where we could invite friends and supporters to celebrate our recent expansion and company development. We set the date for the 7th of August to launch the new office and party-planning was undertaken in-house. One can often underestimate the amount of organisation that goes into hosting an event like this, where we wanted to show off our new space while also ensuring people left with full bellies and a smile on their face!  With this in mind we set out on our mission; buffet tables were setup, bunting was erected, and balloons, cakes and bubbly were collected on Friday morning (That was an entertaining car journey! 🙂 Hat-tip to Fiona who drove with a backseat full of helium balloons and delicate desserts!) Delectable food from local businesses Delish and Zest went down a treat. Of special note was our personalised cake, which not only tasted great but also looked amazing with a sugar print of our company logo on top (and…it was gluten free!) #allroundwinner

Squashing the balloons into the car seemed like a good idea at the time…..until we were faced with detangling back at the office!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There was a fantastic turn out, which, during this busy time of the year, really underpinned the relationship NTES has with customers, suppliers and friends. It is a great thing to see a local company thriving and growing at this time and while it was lovely to showcase NTES’ achievements, the office launch was, in essence, organised to say thank you to everyone who helped us to get to where we are today. We hope that everyone enjoyed the afternoon here in our offices on Lonsdale Road, and we thank you for your continuous support.

Quick shout out to our photographer on the day Sean Curtin, who managed to capture perfectly the atmosphere with ease and a portion of wit! And to our own Krystyna who seamlessly snapped both the preparations and the party. Take a look at the gallery below!
