Door4's 16 years of growth capped by office upgrade

Following 16 consecutive years of growth, digital marketing agency Door4 has moved into new, larger premises in Burnley.

Launched by Burnley born and bred Leon Calverley in 2000, Door4 has since grown to a team of 18, with revenues nearing £1m per year.

The move from original premises in Nelson to Burnley Wharf, Manchester Road, sees the company now occupying the top floor of a 1840s Grade II listed building at the former canal wharf.

Managing director Leon Calverley says: “As well as needing larger premises to cope with our expansion, we moved to Burnley to take advantage of the growing digital economy.

“Burnley is fast developing as a hotspot for the digital industries, and the move into prestigious new premises is better for attracting and retaining the right staff – the lifeblood of any knowledge-based business.

“The new location not only provides better transport links but also better networking, amongst a thriving cluster of local businesses.

“We had lots of support from Burnley Borough Council finding accommodation, introductions, and structuring our rates. We chose the top floor, with original structural beams and warehouse machinery, as it provides our staff with a more inspiring work environment. “We’ve already seen an increase in clients wanting to visit us, and there’s a pub next door! So we couldn’t be happier with the move.”
