Two new business investments have launched in Telford.
Start-up software development company Urbansoftech and Stoke-on-Trent-based manufacturer Midway have opened sites in the borough.
Urbansoftech, which has registered in the UK from Croatia, has ambitious plans for growth and is focussing on empowering live audience dependent industries like the conference, sports, entertainment and hospitality sectors to restart through a mobile access approval service.
Urbansoftech has opened at the E-Innovation Centre at the University of Wolverhampton Telford Campus.
Working with Telford & Wrekin Council’s business support team, Tim Luft, CEO of Virtual Reality Simulation Systems, helped in introducing Urbansoftech to the many benefits of moving to Telford.
Urbansoftech MD Antun Šunjić said: “With the help of Tim Luft and the team at Telford & Wrekin Council our arrival and setting up in Telford has gone smoothly, meaning we can focus now on growing our business quickly. The support available, the central location and skilled workforce are just some of the reasons for our decision to grow our business here."
Specialising in high-tech electrical and mechanical assembly, Midway has opened a new site in Telford on Hortonwood. The firm is aiming to recruit about 20-30 new staff in the next 18 months.
With the help of the council’s business support team, Midway has secured a grant for almost £60,000 from the current European Funding Programme which will result in new jobs being created.
Midway MD Phil Harper said: “The assistance of Telford & Wrekin Council has been invaluable and they have moved quickly to identify and help us secure grant funding that will make a real difference to our business growth. Telford’s importance as a centre for high value advanced manufacturing and access to supply chain has made it the obvious choice for our expansion.”
Councillor David Wright, Telford & Wrekin cabinet member for economy, housing, transport & infrastructure, said: “We are delighted to welcome Midway and Urbansoftech to Telford and their arrival is great news given all the challenges that are facing businesses at the moment.
"We are pleased that through our business supporting approach we have been able to help them with landing support and look forward to helping them further to establish and grow their businesses in Telford."
