TNP moves into new £1m home

Public sector digital network specialist TNP (The Networking People) invested more than £1m in its new Lancaster headquarters.

The company had been based at InfoLab21 within Lancaster University since its formation in 2012.

The new head office will house more than 50 employees including new staff joining the company as a result of a recruitment drive and graduate engagement scheme launched in 2018.

TNP purchased offices on Caton Road in 2018 and has spent more than £1m and over six months refurbishing the building and shaping it to meet the company’s specific needs. 

The project involved creating a new internal layout that includes facilities for hi-tech network engineering along with creative breakout and group working areas to encourage the collaborative approach to problem solving and service delivery that has proved such an important element of TNP’s success. The building also benefits from resilient superfast 10Gbs fibre connectivity to TNP’s national core network, enabling staff to respond more effectively to client needs.

TNP develops and supports digital network solutions for public sector and commercial clients, spanning local authorities, health trusts and education institutions across the UK. It is now one of the country’s leading independent digital network specialists and has grown year on year since its inception.

Lancaster is a vibrant city with the beautiful Lancashire countryside within easy reach.

Chris Wade, commercial director, said: “A move into a larger facility near to the centre of Lancaster seemed the natural next step for TNP. The new location provides easy access to the city itself, and has the advantage of main-line rail connections and the M6 junction just a couple of minutes away.

"TNP has a strong public sector customer base in the North West, working with councils and health authorities across Lancashire, Cumbria, Cheshire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester. We also support clients across the UK including the Highlands and Islands in Scotland, so good transport links are very important to us."

Chris added: “We are now able to project our collaborative corporate ethos through the new headquarters, and attract new staff to the quality of life in Lancaster, a vibrant city with the beautiful Lancashire countryside and the Lake District within easy reach."
