Agilico puts sustainability and charity at heart of hi-tech Aberdeen office move

Agilico, a provider of workspace, IT and telecom solutions as well as an agile print specialist, has opened its new, purpose-built facility with an EPC rating of A/A+ in Aberdeen – and donated the furniture and supplies from the old office to charity in the process.

Following nearly two decades in Grampian House, the move to a new, expanded, sustainably-rated location at City South Business Park around five miles from the city centre highlights the firm’s “commitment to sustainability and growth,” while the office was officially opened by Bob Keiller, former chair of Scottish Enterprise – Scotland’s national economic development agency.

With a 2,000 sq ft warehouse, 1,000 sq ft client demonstration area and sales office, the investment in the new high-specification facility is geared towards providing enhanced support and service to clients across the North East of Scotland, but also deepening its roots in Aberdeen and contributing to the local community’s growth by creating job opportunities – the firm is actively seeking new talent in the sales and servicing teams.

As a pioneering circular-first managed print services business, the new Aberdeen workshop is at the forefront of refurbishing the range of multi-functional devices, making it the only supplier leading sustainability with its extensive capabilities in the area. Additionally, the new office is equipped with energy efficient smart lighting and insulation reflecting Agilico’s dedication to sustainability and responsible business.

Warren Colby, MD, Agile Print Division, said: “The state-of-the-art, high-specification office in Aberdeen was specifically designed to maximise efficiency overall, offering a pleasant and sustainable environment for Agilico employees. We’re optimistic about the positive impact our new home in Aberdeen’s newest business park will have on our operations, employees and the community in Aberdeen and wider Scotland as we continue our journey towards a more sustainable future.”

“It is encouraging to see Agilico investing in Aberdeen and expanding their cost effective and environmentally responsible approach,” Keiller added at the opening ceremony.

In line with its commitment to sustainability and drive to Net Zero by 2030, prior to the move Agilico donated office furniture from the old Aberdeen office, along with paper with the old logo and letterheads, to charities and churches across the region, ensuring nothing went to waste and the office supplies had a second life. Charities included St Machar’s Cathedral, Strathbogie Drumblade Church – For Huntly Development Trust and Deveron Arts, Assembly of God in Fraserburgh and Stella’s Voice in Aberdeen.
