Adventoris has moved to its own office building in Huddersfield with more than £1 million of investment planned over the next five years.
The tech company is the creator of SwiftCloud, a customisable B2B mobile app platform designed specifically for distributors and wholesalers that enables their customers to see products, communicate with the company and make orders 24/7.
It has also secured a hat-trick of major client wins with fresh produce giant Dole, commercial vehicle manufacturer Isuzu Truck UK and supermarket staple Tilda Rice coming onboard.
SwiftCloud has experienced impressive growth over the last 12 months, achieving just under £2.5m in turnover, a 28% increase year on year and its fourth year of profitable growth.
The firm now has a team of 50 members and boasts 218 clients, with even more notable brands onboard including Pepsi Co., Pukka Pads and AG BARR.
Adventoris has also significantly grown its channel partner network this year, with 33 resellers and referrers now on board.
As well as the site move, development work has been undertaken including the creation of a suite of executive offices and a new boardroom, named the Armitage Suite. The Armitage Suite is a tribute to Peter Armitage, a non-executive director at Adventoris and founding partner of Key Capital Partners, who passed away in March 2023.
Armitage, which featured on the 2023 Yorkshire Tech Climbers list, was one of the original investors in the company and has contributed significantly to the business over the years.
Located on St Thomas’ Road in Huddersfield, Folly Hall Mills is a Grade II listed property built in 1844 by famed Huddersfield builder, Joseph Kaye, who was the man behind many of Huddersfield’s iconic buildings, including the railway station, George Hotel and Britannia Buildings.
The site also has a personal connection with Adventoris CEO James Clarkson, whose wife’s grandmother used to work on the looms there.
“We’ve had another fantastic year and I am delighted to announce the onboarding of three incredible businesses: Tilda Rice, Dole and Isuzu Truck UK, as well as the move to our new offices,” said Clarkson.
“This is a move that will help take Adventoris to the next level and solidify our place in the market, allowing us the space and opportunity to grow and develop the team and offering, while continuing to be a part of the wonderful Huddersfield business community.
“Folly Hall Mills is the ideal site for us to continue growing as we look ahead to further global expansion this year.
“I am proud that we can include a tribute to Peter in our new space, through the Armitage Suite. Peter was a huge part of the business and is greatly missed.”
