Season Group subsidiary Season Design Technology (SDT), which specializes in embedded computing products and custom electronic design, has relocated to brand new offices in Sheffield. The new offices provide the SDT team with the opportunity to triple its workforce over the next few years – a growth rate that the company anticipates needing to achieve if it is to support the growing demand for design services from Season Group customers and for the expansion of its own embedded system product line.
The investment will also allow SDT to offer better support and solutions to its customers – and the signing of a long-term lease emphasizes the strong commitment that Season Group has to Design in the region.
Councilor Talib Hussain, current Lord Mayor of Sheffield, cut the ribbon at the official opening, which was also attended by Season Group's CEO, Carl Hung who travelled from Hong Kong to take part in the celebrations.
Councilor Talib said, "I am delighted to open SDT's new offices. Sheffield is at the heart of UK manufacturing industry and is known for its strengths in manufacturing, engineering and technology sectors. It’s great to have a global company recognize this and commit to a long term investment that will help our local economy and which will create highly skilled jobs."
Speaking at the event, Carl said, "The opening of the new offices plays an integral part in the Group's plans to expand its operations in the UK. We saw Sheffield as a prime location in which to invest. With its abundance of universities and technology companies nearby, there is a great pool of talent in Sheffield for us to choose from. This relocation will allow us to aggressively expand our design team in the UK and provide better service to our customers in Europe and North America."
