Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced it will move into office space at Manchester's new city neighbourhood, Circle Square, in 2020.

The tech giant currently operates across six locations in the UK - in Bracknell, London, Bristol, Belfast, Warrington and Erskine.

It plans to occupy 20,000 sq ft on the seventh floor of No. 1 Circle Square when it moves in summer 2020. The space will have the capacity for almost 300 of HPE's UK employees.

HPE will take up a 10-year lease for the managed office space, which includes over 200 permanent seats, and capacity for almost 100 more in secondary seating.

Marc Waters, Managing Director of UK & Ireland at HPE, said: "As we continue to grow our business in the UK, we're really pleased to build out an innovative work space for our people in the heart of Manchester.

“The intent of the Circle Square development is to build a collaborative community of leaders in technology, business, arts and science, which is compelling. Hewlett Packard Enterprise is excited to be a part of such a progressive project that is well aligned to our core values. Our connectivity and security solutions are embedded in the development which will itself be a showcase for edge technology in the workplace.”

Tim Newns, CEO of MIDAS – Manchester’s inward investment agency, said: “We’re delighted to have helped HPE establish operations in the city. As the UK’s second largest creative, digital and technology hub, Greater Manchester is a hotbed for collaboration and innovation – and I have no doubt that HPE will quickly and effectively utilise this to drive the future of technology.”

Circle Square is a joint venture between Bruntwood SciTech and Select Property Group and is already home to Manchester Technology Centre occupied by over 22 data science and technology innovation businesses, and pop-up retail destination Hatch.

Bradley Topps, Commercial Director at Bruntwood SciTech, added: "We are delighted to be welcoming Hewlett Packard Enterprise to Circle Square, a fitting home for a global business which shares our ambitions and passion for best-in-class innovation.

“HPE has one of the most comprehensive product portfolios in the industry and a vision for the future of technology and its benefits that we wholeheartedly share. They understand as well as anyone the power of technology to fuel ideas and accelerate growth."

Ahead of the move to Circle Square, HPE will relocate some employees to an interim office at Manchester Technology Centre, in the first half of 2019.
