NCC Group to move headquarters to XYZ

Global information assurance specialist NCC Group plc has announced that it will create its new 60,000 sq ft headquarters within the XYZ building.

Rob Cotton, CEO at NCC Group, said: “As a rapidly growing, FTSE-listed business at the forefront of technology we needed a space that could match our ambitions and keep up with us as we continually adapt to the rapid pace of technological change. We found that space in XYZ.

“We will create some of the most exciting workspace ever seen in Manchester and most importantly provide a quality space for all staff to work and continue to develop, create and inspire.

“Our company’s success is based on innovation and by situating ourselves within the heart of Spinningfields we are aiming to create and stimulate a hotbed of tech creativity in the surrounding community.”

Michael Ingall, Chief Executive of Allied London, said: “NCC is a leading technology company in its field and it’s great for Manchester to headquarter such an operation and it’s appropriate for it now to be located at XYZ, Spinningfields, which will be the city’s most advanced commercial building. XYZ was built for the likes of such innovative and pioneering companies and our workspace solution will support NCC’s talented workforce throughout their careers.

“XYZ Spinningfields is a building aimed deliberately at defining a new asset class of workspace particularly for the Telecommunications, Media & Technology (TMT) sector and forward-thinking corporates. Some 20 per cent of the XYZ building will be amenity space, from independent coffee hubs, innovative restaurants, co-work space, event and conference space, screening and cinema room, terraces and garden together with a bike park and personal fitness studio.

“The strength of the XYZ offering future-proofs company workspace solutions and creates the XYZ culture. This is what attracted NCC to bring their flourishing and ever-evolving company to XYZ, Spinningfields and we look forward to welcoming them.”
