Leading Software as a Service (SaaS) provider, Adventoris, has moved to its own office building in Huddersfield, Folly Hall Mills, in a bold move solidifying the firm’s future as a major player in the SaaS market. Over the next five years, the total investment into the property will be over £1m. The move has been amplified with a hattrick of major client wins, with fresh produce giant, Dole, commercial vehicle manufacturer, Isuzu Truck UK, and supermarket staple, Tilda Rice, coming onboard.
Adventoris, creator of B2B sales platform SwiftCloud, has experienced impressive growth over the last 12 months, achieving just under £2.5m in turnover, a 28 per cent increase year on year and its fourth year of profitable growth.
The firm now has a team of 50 members and boasts 218 clients, with even more notable brands onboard including Pepsi Co., Pukka Pads and AG BARR. Adventoris has also significantly grown its channel partner network this year, with 33 resellers and referrers now on board.
As well as the site move, development work has been undertaken including the creation of a suite of executive offices and a new board room, named the Armitage Suite. The Armitage Suite is a tribute to Peter Armitage, a non-executive director at Adventoris and founding partner of Key Capital Partners, who passed away in March 2023. Peter was one of the original investors in the company and has contributed significantly to the business over the years.
Located on St Thomas’ Road in Huddersfield, Folly Hall Mills is a Grade II listed property built in 1844 by famed Huddersfield builder, Joseph Kaye, who was the man behind many of Huddersfield’s iconic buildings, including the railway station, George Hotel and Britannia Buildings.
The site has hosted a number of traders over the years, most notably the internationally acclaimed worsted yarn company, Joseph Lumb & Co, which is responsible for the creation of the Golden Bale medal, an accreditation for worsted yarn that is now an international standard.
As well as having a rich heritage in Huddersfield, the site also has a personal connection with Adventoris’ CEO, James Clarkson, whose wife’s grandmother used to work on the looms there.
Speaking of the news, James Clarkson, said: “We’ve had another fantastic year and I am delighted to announce the onboarding of three incredible businesses: Tilda Rice, Dole and Isuzu Truck UK, as well as the move to our new offices.
“This is a move that will help take Adventoris to the next level and solidify our place in the market, allowing us the space and opportunity to grow and develop the team and offering, while continuing to be a part of the wonderful Huddersfield business community.
“Folly Hall Mills is the ideal site for us continue growing as we look ahead to further global expansion this year.
“I am proud that we can include a tribute to Peter in our new space, through the Armitage Suite. Peter was a huge part of the business and is greatly missed.”
