INNNOVATIVE software company, Quorum, made the short journey from Teesside to the NETPark Incubator in 2014 and have never looked back.

Quorum, which was established in 2002, supplies expert advice, software and services to organisations such as EDF Energy, Orsted, in Denmark, Flexitricity and Centrica. Its products include the Sentinel product, which enables communication with National Grid and supports the efficient operation of power stations in the UK market.

Since making the move to NETPark, Quorum has grown its product range, staff numbers, skills and experience and has developed an exceptional reputation in the energy market.

As Quorum expanded, the team at NETPark helped facilitate their growth needs providing the flexibility to take on more space as the company grows. After doubling the number of clients in 2018 the team at NETPark helped Quorum create 1,200 sq ft of office space for its 14 staff at the NETPark’s new Explorer buildings in 2018.  Quorum has increased its turnover by around 20% in each of the past 3 years, with an expected turnover this year of £2 million and now employs 18 staff.

Paul Usher, commercial director, said:  “NETPark has been a great place for us. The location is central for us, with a large number of our customers being based in both Scotland and England and is really convenient for them to fly into Newcastle Airport or get the train to Durham. The staff at Business Durham have been fantastic and have done everything possible to facilitate our growth including the move to NETPark Explorer.”

Janet Todd, manager of NETPark: “Quorum is an exceptional company to work with. They have a very considered approach to doing business and a great reputation within their sector, having recently won a number of contracts, some of them with big energy providers, which further enhances their growing portfolio of clients. We look forward to supporting them for many years to come.”

It fits perfectly for us that we’re surrounded by like-minded companies at NETPark. There are a number of highly skilled people in the area who can help us grow our business. The facilities and services offered by NETPark are first class, they make office life simple and engaging.

Stuart Wilson, - CEO, Ascarii

The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.

Dr Arnab Basu, - CEO, Kromek

Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.

Steve Clements, - Managing Director, aXenic

CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.

Dr Jon Helliwell, - Director of Printable Electronics, CPI

The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.

Dr Neil Loxley, - Chief executive, IBEX

We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.
