This morning Digital Window Ltd announces the relocation of their Newcastle operation to London, scheduled closure of the Newcastle office will occur no sooner than 31st March 2011.
Digital Window have conducted a thorough strategic review of the business as a whole, following the purchase of competitor affiliate network buy.at in March 2010, it has been concluded that all Digital Window’s UK operations should be located in London. With buy.at’s London operation already successfully integrated with existing Digital Window franchises, centralising this remaining outpost will further strengthen the working relationships and processes that have already been formed. Additional office space has already been secured which will enable the business to continue to grow within close proximity throughout the coming years.
Every member of staff in the Newcastle office will be given the support and opportunity to transfer to the London office with additional job guarantees. Tailored relocation assistance will be provided, including the use of a specialist relocation agency.
Mark Walters, Managing Director added; “The Newcastle office staff have operated remotely from the core of the Digital Window business since the acquisition and whilst I applaud their efforts to date, the business benefits of relocating to London are numerous. We will make every effort to help all individuals affected by this transition and trust that the lengthy lead time and support on offer will allow us to keep everyone within the organisation.”
The relocation of buy.at operations from Newcastle to London will not affect merchant or affiliate service levels and planning has begun to ensure a smooth transition over the coming months.
