Global IT consultancy opens new ‘state-of-the-art’ Sunderland city centre tech hub

Apexon, a digital-first technology services company, has opened a new ‘state-of-art facility’ in Sunderland to help it meet the growing demand for its digital products and services in the UK.

Apexon, which specialises in delivering technology services that accelerate business transformation, will base its UK headquarters in the city centre’s rapidly transforming Riverside Sunderland area.

The timing follows a recent announcement from the UK government demonstrating near-record levels of funding in the UK tech sector, which is home to the greatest number of high-growth companies in Europe.

The new 5,700 sq ft facility located at The Beam supports Apexon’s plan to continue investing in the UK and Europe over the coming years as it looks to provide its clients with greater access to its world-renowned digital experts.

The move will also see Apexon join Ocado, the world’s largest online grocer and software engineering company, asset55 at the business hub, as well as North East Screen, the region’s TV and film screen body.

Rob Gwyther, managing director, Apexon UK, commented: “We are really excited to expand our presence in the UK, a vibrant technology hub at the forefront of global digital evolution.

“We look forward to partnering with organisations as their technology partner of choice to help them navigate their digital transformation journeys and create meaningful competitive differentiation.

“Our Sunderland headquarters will help us gain access to the best and brightest digital engineering and technology talent in the region and we reaffirm our commitment to creating a robust, inclusive culture that will help our employees grow and thrive.”

Since it first opened an office in the Sunderland area in 2014, Apexon has worked closely with the local community to hone talent and create growth. In that time, the team has grown from 25 to over 150 employees, engaging with UK customers as well as the company’s global client base.

More recently, Apexon UK has been certified as a Great Place to Work® and helped to drive digital skills development in the region by partnering with Sunderland College to provide on-the-job training for T-level students.

Patrick Melia, chief executive of Sunderland City Council, added: “Apexon’s expansion into its new office space demonstrates the growth and development opportunities that digital services offer in Sunderland.”
