Located on Lancaster Way Business Park, and part of the Cambridge Compass Enterprise Zone, Deanta’s new premises is another welcome addition to the growing Business Park.
Mike O’Toole, Managing Director of Deanta, said: “We are very excited about moving our operations to Lancaster Way as it will undoubtedly enhance our reputation and give us plenty of room for growth. In fact, we plan on employing an extra 30 people over the next two years
“We have experienced rapid growth in recent years and have outgrown our current site so Lancaster Way was a perfect fit for our relocation. Ely is an up-and-coming city and Lancaster Way has built up an impressive infrastructure. We have also built an amazing team of talented people, many of whom live locally, and this was the key motivating factor in our decision.”
