acuity open first office in historic Piece Mill
acuity are delighted to announce the first phase of expansion plans involving new premises at the Piece Mill in Halifax. The Piece Mill has recently been refurbished by a partnership between Leeds Beckett University and Calderdale Council. Situated next to the iconic Piece Hall (which has been subject to its own £20m renovation), the new Unversity business hub has been completely converted into modern open plan business offices aimed specifically for start-ups.
The big move is acuity’s first dedicated office space after months of continued growth and aspirations for expansion.
“It’s finally time to expand our office space and head count at acuity as I look towards the future of the company. The Piece Mill business hub is ideal for our digital business and will see us move into a wonderfully converted piece of history that is conveniently located the stunning Piece Hall in Halifax. As a Halifax lad born and bred, I’m delighted to be one of the many digital businesses investing in the town to try help bring more digital talent to our area.
Our partnership with Leeds Beckett University gives us a great platform for nurturing young talented graduates in digital and keeping them in Yorkshire. Having seen the offices at various stages of refurbishment it is so exciting to be one of the first tenants into a state-of-the-art facility like the Piece Mill.
There’s a real buzz about Halifax at the moment with the Tour de Yorkshire set to depart literally outside our window on the final day of the race (6th May) and the recent renovations to the Piece Hall is a huge bonus to the town. Our new offices are so conveniently located with the train station just 100 meters down the road. We’re surrounded by bars, shops and restaurants in the Piece Hall. Having the support of the University will prove invaluable to a start-up like us”
– Sean Walsh (Director)
acuity will be opening the office 1st May and is expected to be making first hires throughout the summer months. Our thanks go to the Leeds Beckett University team – especially Jesse Stott – for all their hard work in getting the business centre up and running.
