We have moved!

We are excited to announce that our team has moved to a new location in Cheltenham.  We spent the previous five years in a building about five hundred metres away from our new location — our old office served us well, and we made great memories (and technology solutions) there, but we couldn’t be more excited about our new space.

While we were happy with our space, there were several motivating factors to make a move:

  1. Space. When we first moved into our last office, there were five of us and plenty of room.  When we left, there were ten Firster’s and space was getting tight.  The new office offered more square footage, but more importantly it allowed us to rethink our layout.  We were able to start from scratch by knocking down walls and putting up others that better fit our team and how we’re growing.  Overall, we now have more of an open plan so we’re all working closer together rather than a more compartmentalised layout at our last place.
  2. Visibility. In our last office, we were on the fifth floor of a building surrounded by a dozen other firms.  While we really liked our neighbors, we lived a pretty anonymous existence.  There was no way for anyone in the community outside of that building to know we existed, and we’re hoping our new more prestigious location will help bolster our visibility in the area and help us more quickly come to mind as local businesses decide to take on technology projects.
  3. Location. What a difference a few hundred metres makes.  Our last office was within an old and tiring building. Our new offices are in the recently refurbished Eagle Tower with first class facilities. We’re all huge advocates for this community, and we’re excited that our office location now furthers that commitment by our pledging to remain in the area.

It has been an exciting fifteen years for First Solution Technologies, and we look at this new location as the start of another chapter in our history.  We’re still working on getting settled in and adding artwork to the walls, but we’re incredibly excited to be in the new space.  We’ll be hosting an open office soon for local clients, and if you’re in the area, feel free to stop in and say hi!

Thanks for everyone’s support through the years and with the move. All operations including our Network Operating Centre and our Security Operations Centre have been relocated and we hope you haven’t even noticed. Our expert project managers planned the operation with their usual precision and the move went entirely as planned.

Our new address is:

First Solution Technologies Limited
Eagle Tower,
Montpellier Drive,
Cheltenham,
GL50 1TA.

Supporting local businesses

We continue to support many local businesses and charities in the Cheltenham area and felt that our bond to the city was too important to break. Also, as an award-winning Managed Security Service Provider we continue to work with local businesses in the Cyber Security capital of the UK throughout the Cheltenham valley. Our satellite offices in Swindon and Bristol remain open as usual and we look forward to helping you with your Managed IT Support requirements for the next fifteen years!
