Deerns Group, a prime international engineering consultancy firm, headquartered in the Netherlands, has opened their second UK office in Manchester after having established its UK presence three years ago in London.
Since opening its first office in London in 2011, Deerns UK has rapidly grown into a successful practice, which now employs 65 staff and has quickly gained recognition in the UK for excellence in data centre design. The next stage in the development of Deerns UK is now underway with the opening of a new office in Manchester, which will significantly increase the company’s geographic reach and presence.
Manchester is recognised by Deerns Group to be a thriving commercial and industrial hub with a strong skills-base of engineering and technology professionals, making it the city of choice for the expansion of their UK operation. Deerns UK’s presence enables them to provide specialised skills locally and to deliver a consistent level of service throughout the UK to national and international clients.
A significant proportion of Deerns UK’s work is carried out for international clients, on projects outside the UK. Therefore in addition to making internationally recognised engineering expertise available to North West businesses, Deerns’ model of exporting specialised professional services and skills will provide a valuable revenue stream into Manchester, from the global technology economy.
The opening of Deerns UK’s Manchester office is well timed, coinciding with their recent success in securing their first contract in the area, a cleanroom project for leading international semiconductor manufacturing company, NXP Semiconductors.
In addition to building on their existing expertise in data centre and clean technology, Deerns UK is focused on diversifying the business into new segments, including: commercial real estate, universities and Airports, all areas in which Deerns Group has established a strong international reputation for delivering high quality services. Their new Manchester office will be fully engaged in the development of this strategy.
Deerns UK’s managing director George Pollock is focused on connecting Deerns UK to the local business community. “I believe our Manchester base will play a key role in the on-going success and development of our firm.”
