Investment at the Science Park and a growing South West tech sector has seen home-grown business Rowe IT establish themselves in the market place and enjoy year-on-year growth.
Rowe IT delivers a range of complex IT-based solutions to clients across the South West, including the UK Hydrographic Office and Met Office, and since moving to the Science Park, the business has seen 61% growth year on year.
Rowe IT have announced that they are expanding their office space at Plymouth Science Park to include additional meeting rooms and collaboration zones, where ideas can be developed and strategies built to support their growing workforce.
Since they were established as a small team four years ago, Rowe IT has been an advocate for supporting local talent. They employ a team of 29 professionals, the majority of which are University of Plymouth and University of Exeter graduates. They have also set up a graduate apprenticeship scheme to support people who want to work in the IT sector, with their first apprentice starting in September.
Rowe IT Manager, Hannah Rowe said: “Our quality expert services, as well as the supportive community at Plymouth Science Park, has enabled us to grow the Rowe IT business. The ability to access additional, purpose built space within the Park has supported our strategic growth and development. We’re looking forward to seeing what the next four years hold as we continue to work alongside the like-minded businesses based at Plymouth Science Park.”
Business Development Manager at Plymouth Science Park, Fay Davis, said: “Tech is the fastest growing sector in the South West and Rowe IT is one of the region’s thriving tech firms, and certainly one to watch as they embark upon the next stage of their business growth. We look forward to supporting them with their continued business development and celebrating their future successes.”
