Leading business software provider Syncsort is preparing for future growth, moving its Taunton based employees to Tangier Central, the town’s newly refurbished, contemporary office complex.

The Taunton-based team recently joined Syncsort following the US-headquartered company’s acquisition of Metron, a specialist in the provision of capacity management software.

Agents for the Castle Street site, Hatfield White and Williams Gunter Hardwick, have confirmed that a ten-year lease for 5,210 sq ft has been agreed with Syncsort, which provides its products and services to a global client base.

Syncsort’s lease, which was negotiated by chartered surveyor Chesters Commercial on Syncsort’s behalf, includes a five-year rent review and sees Syncsort move from its previous base at Osborne House, Trull Road to first floor offices at Tangier Central.

Syncsort’s move represents the latest of several deals that have seen prominent regional companies and organisations, including consultant Setsquare Recruitment and a branch office of trade union UNISON, relocate to the riverside office complex.

The two buildings that together comprise Tangier Central have been undergoing extensive modernisation in a £1.5m scheme that has released new office space ranging from 1,400 sq ft to 60,000 sq ft onto the market.

Tangier Central aims to offer the convenience of an out-of-town business park in a central location that is just a 15-minute walk from Taunton railway station, and a 10-minute drive from Junction 25 on the M5.

“It’s been an exciting year for our new employees, joining Syncsort, meshing their subject matter expertise with our increased resources, to support sales growth of our new capacity management solution,” said David Hodgson, Chief Product Officer at Syncsort. “We are very pleased to be relocating them to the employee-friendly, modern workspace that has been created in Tangier Central.”

Nigel Hatfield, Director at Hatfield White, commented: “We are thrilled to welcome Syncsort, a successful, progressive and highly regarded technology firm, to Tangier Central.

“Syncsort’s decision to relocate to Castle Street demonstrates Tangier Central’s appeal to growing businesses that are focussed on providing high quality work space for staff and clients.

“Taunton has a growing reputation as a base for the region’s thriving tech sector with tech companies showing a particular appetite to secure room for growth. We are proud to help facilitate this, as well as providing a base for growing companies from across the private sector.”
