Duo of digital scale-ups double footprint at Manchester Science Park

Bright Building

Digital tech scale-ups Cubic Motion and DigitalBridge have more than doubled the size of their operations at the Bright Building on Manchester Science Park.

Cubic Motion, which has provided cutting-edge facial animation software on blockbuster video games such as Hellblade and Call of Duty, has now moved its team of more than 100 tech workers into almost 9,000 sq ft of space.

DigitalBridge, which utilises artificial intelligence technology to enable people to design their dream bathroom or kitchen on any device and has been backed by John Lewis, has taken 7,300 sq ft. 

Tom Renn, Managing Director of Manchester Science Partnerships (MSP), said: “Cubic Motion and DigitalBridge are established names in Manchester’s digital tech sector and are quickly making their names known across the country too.

“They’ve attracted backing from sector-savvy investors, scaled quickly from their existing bases at Manchester Science Park, and grown their headcounts substantially over the last decade.

“They now employ hundreds of the digital industry’s brightest minds and are integral members of the MSP community. Both companies stand as blueprints for tech scaleup success, which other promising startups can draw inspiration from.” 

Andy Wood, president of Cubic Motion, said “We have always felt privileged to be amongst the wealth of innovative, creative and global companies based at Manchester Science Park.

“We are delighted to be able to rapidly expand Cubic Motion, whilst remaining true to our Mancunian roots. 2019 will be our biggest year yet, growing our roster of global clients, launching new products to new and existing marketplaces and expanding our services across multiple sectors.”

David Levine, CEO and founder of DigitalBridge, added: “We have ambitions to tap into the huge opportunity offered by the home renovation market on a global scale, and are in an excellent position to power this expansion in the coming months and years.

“Manchester Science Park provides an excellent base, and moving into the Bright Building is an exciting step in the next phase of our growth. My team are happy they’ll be even closer to the Friska cafe and the fitness studio too!”
