distanceCreative digital agency The Distance is expanding into new offices from its incubator home on York’s Science Park.

The company, which now employs 18 staff, specialises in e-commerce, mobile and marketing.

Bidding them farewell, the Science Park said The Distance had expanded rapidly in its first seven months meaning that its floor space had to triple to cater for the size of its new team.

The Distance mobile director and partner, Anthony Main, said: “Choosing to start our business on York Science Park has played a key role in its rapid growth.  We’ve been able to develop many very productive partnerships and collaborations with other residents, which have really helped us move forward.  We have also been able to work very closely with a number of Departments at the University including those of Theatre, Film and Television and Computer Science.  

“We are now very excited to be moving to our new offices in York and looking forward to 2014 as the year when we can consolidate our business, continue to expand and enhance our client relationships and fine tune our latest product, which we will be launching in the Summer.”

The Distance, with turnover forecast to hit £1 million this year, will be based in a converted Grade Two listed building in Skeldergate, in the heart of the city from this month.
