Cubic Motion, a 3D and 2D human and character facial animation company, has taken office space on Manchester Science Parks’ (msp) Corridor site.
The company deploys tools and technologies, often developed in-house, to produce high quality performance driven facial animation, used in television, film and the gaming industry.
Moving from the Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus, the company cited Manchester Science Parks’ city centre location and high speed connectivity as key reasons behind the decision to relocate.
Doug Tate, Operations Director at Cubic Motion said: “For us, msp is ideally located – in Manchester city centre, at the north-western hub of England’s optical fibre network and right next to two of the best universities in the North West, where we recruit many of our talented young staff from.
“We have experienced consistent growth since the company’s inception in 2009. Our aim is to keep building the business organically by developing better, faster animation technologies and I believe the best place for us to do this is here at msp.”
Cubic Motion has 20 staff members and works internationally, with a second office in Canada. The company has taken space in Enterprise House on msp’ Corridor site on a three year lease.
Lynne Barlow, Commercial Director at Manchester Science Parks, added: “We are pleased that companies from the digital and creative sectors are taking note of the advantages of locating at msp. As well as benefitting from our fantastic connectivity, we offer business support services and links with North West universities that can help companies grow and get in touch with the brightest graduates.”
