Greater Manchester-based National Network Operator, Vaioni is relocating and opening its brand-new head office in the heart of MediaCityUK as growth surpasses 100 per cent over the last four years with a plan to achieve £20m turnover in the next three to five years.
Multi-awarding-winning network operator, Vaioni Group Limited provides mission critical internet connectivity & MPLS Solutions to businesses throughout the UK, with their own carrier-grade infrastructure, the Vaioni Ethernet Network. Following year on year growth over the last four years, 2018 has been Vaioni’s most successful year to date with revenue increasing 27 per cent.
Vaioni’s substantial revenue growth has also resulted in an increase in its people, by circa 30 per cent, all of which has contributed to the company’s move. Relocating from its existing residence within Salford University Business Park, Vaioni is leasing the top office floor of Grade A space located in Tomorrow, MediaCityUK.
The move comes as Vaioni become the latest business to join the Northern Powerhouse partner programme, a network of almost 200 businesses from across the North working together to realise the economic potential of the Northern Powerhouse.
Sachin Vaish, Managing Director, Vaioni Group Limited says: “This is another very exciting and incredibly proud moment for our business. MediaCityUK is by far the most innovative and leading hub, housing some of the best brands in the UK, and signifies what our business is about. Not only do we want a great place for our people to work from, but our new home allows us to collaborate and innovate even better between ourselves and with our customers. Becoming Northern Powerhouse partners couldn’t have happened at a better time as we celebrate our success as a rapidly growing business at the heart of the North. We are all really excited and cannot wait to move in.”
The new 5,000sq ft office will allow the team to continue to grow while providing a ‘modern and exciting’ working environment. With 33 in the Vaioni team at present, Vaioni’s workforce is also set to increase, as the move cements the company’s further growth plans to over 70 people.
