Rural broadband specialist Quickline Communications has opened its new headquarters in East Yorkshire, signalling a huge expansion for the company.

Quickline has already more than doubled the size of its workforce this year to over 130 people and has plans to double that again over the coming year.

The move comes after the complete transformation of three buildings in Willerby into their new office space.

Quickline was founded in 2008 and uses a hybrid of technologies including 5G fixed wireless and FTTP, often working with government and local authorities to try and solve the connectivity problems that exist in rural communities.

Chief executive Sean Royce said: “This is such an essential and positive move for us and we’re delighted to be in finally. Having grown so quickly, we simply didn’t fit in our previous offices anymore.

“Albion Mills is a much bigger space, is easy to get to and allows us to manage our next recruitment phase more easily. But it is much more than this.

“It is about investing in our people, making them proud to work for Quickline. We want to make this a great place to work and for our people to want to be together.

“Since the pandemic, we have developed a flexible working approach and we want people to continue to work from home, but also to have a dedicated workspace where they can collaborate, create solutions together, build strong relationships and have some fun with their colleagues. Indeed, for many of our people, it will be the first time they have met their colleagues in person.”
