Hatch Communications has become the latest agency to move to Leeds Dock.

The agency has relocated from Wharfebank Business Centre in Otley, where it was founded in 2008, and says the move will allow it to grow.

Jason Madeley, MD, said: “This move gives us the room we need to continue to grow and provides us with an ideal location for not only our staff, but also our clients.

“In the last 18 months, Hatch has gone from strength to strength following a rebrand and a number of new account wins. It’s the logical next step for us to move into the city so we can really make our mark as one of the leading agencies in the region.

“The developments and plans at Leeds Dock are really impressive and we’re excited to become part of the vibrant community of what will be Leeds’ new creative hub.”

Leeds Dock, now owned by Allied London, is being redeveloped as a new creative hub for the city.

Tim Gee, from Allied London, added: “Hatch is a business that understand and share our vision for Leeds Dock. Working with them has been refreshing and I look forward to continuing this new relationship as we grow our creative and digital offering at Leeds Dock.”

Hatch works with clients including First Utility, the British Growers Association and the Yorkshire Building Society.
