ELECTRIC Works' ambition to become a Sheffield-based hub for creative and digital sector freelances and start-up companies is bearing fruit following the arrival of nine new users.
Four new start-up companies - Translytx, Logicatronics, Casamore and Faradion - and business performance specialists Caudata have all taken virtual office space within the building, giving them an address, phone answering and flexible use of office space within the Sheffield Digital Campus-based development.
Meanwhile, award-winning radio producer Frances Byrnes, 351 Design, IT systems trouble-shooters ACR Consulting and Steve Faulkner from Distinctive Magic, whose performances have taken him around the world, have joined the Electric Works Club, which gives freelances 24-hour access to workspace with wi-fi, meeting areas and membership of the Electric Works creative community.
Electric Works' Louise Jamieson says: "Part of the Electric Works ethos is to foster new and growing talent and the arrival of such diverse businesses en masse shows how the variety of flexible services suits their differing needs. We have continued to expand the number, type and size of organisation moving into Electric Works despite the recession, reflecting the marked shift towards workspace that offers something extra."
