Universal Web Design is expanding its operation with a new office at OrbisEnergy in Lowestoft, Suffolk, and will offer packages specifically for businesses and organisations working in the clean energy industry
It chose the new site overlooking the North Sea at Great Britain’s most easterly point because it is at the forefront of efforts to ensure Net Zero and is a clean energy business hub, recognised as a centre of excellence for the sector.
Universal Web Design’s operations director Lauren Nevill has over 10 years of experience in the energy sector before moving into marketing and will use her expertise to help clients.
She said: “We already have a vast client base in the energy sector and are marketing partner to over 600 different companies.”
The expansion into Lowestoft marks the start of major ambitions to invest in the East Coast. Lauren explained: “We have big plans for the future. The 30 new jobs over the coming months will help reduce the current unemployment rate.
“We aim to become a major employer in the area with a five-year plan of creating more than 250 jobs for local people. We want to employ talented personnel with big ambitions and also enhance the skills of current workers.”
Universal Web Design was founded by multi-award-winning entrepreneur Danny Nevill in 2011. It already employs over 20 people and has won multiple business awards providing help in areas like website design, online marketing, video production and graphic design.
Lauren said: “Whether you want to increase your online presence or create award-winning international branding, we can help businesses and organisations in clean energy meet their goals.
“We have a huge amount of experience working with clients of all sizes and types and boast a lot of knowledge about what works for them. All of us at Universal Web Design are also perfectionists and want to do the best we possibly can for the people we work with.”
The company will join almost 40 other businesses and organisations which have a base at OrbisEnergy. Owned by Suffolk County Council and managed by Vertas Group Ltd, alongside high-quality managed workspace, the centre provides a prestigious, Covid-secure setting for business meetings and conferences to its tenants and external clients.
Angela Grey, building and tenant manager at OrbisEnergy, said: “We are excited to welcome Universal Web Design. Their location here will put them at the centre of the UK’s clean energy market. The knowledge and expertise of the many people who work within this building also mean they are in exactly the right place to help advise and support those working in the sector.”
