Award-Winning Cyber Security Distributor invests in Stockport
Kay Stevenson

Leading specialist cyber security distributor Distology has chosen Stockport town centre as the location for their global office headquarters as part of their ambitious growth plans following investment from NorthEdge PE.

Distology’s new HQ will be located at Orbit Developments’ No 1. St Peters Square totalling 4,175 sq ft, and is close to Stockport’s popular Market Place area.

The space is an upscale from 1,628sq ft at their existing premises at Lansdowne House to accommodate the growing team.

Founded in 2014, Distology has quickly become a specialist in cloud-based cyber security technology, representing vendors of IT security technology products across EMEA. The business is headquartered in the UK with access to the European market via its office in The Netherlands.

Distology has enjoyed consistent success, increasing year-on-year revenue by more than 75% over the past three years, with key partnerships including technology vendors Okta, Verkada and Yubico.

The success of those partnerships led to Distology winning the Cloud Distributor of the Year award at the CRN Awards 2020, and Distributor of the Year (sub £250m turnover) in 2019.

Over the past 12 months, the team headcount has grown by 39% due to the increased demand in cyber security solutions.

Commenting on the relocation, Hayley Roberts, CEO for Distology said:
“As the CEO of Distology, it’s my job to ensure the environment I expect my team to work from is exciting, inspiring, and most importantly conducive to Distology’s ambitious, yet supportive culture and it’s the transformation we’re seeing in Stockport’s town centre that attracted me to want to stay in the area instead of relocating our office into Manchester.”

“The growing list of amenities gives my team access to café’s, bars and restaurants – many of which rival those you see in the Northern Quarter, but equally as important is the ease of accessibility.

“We have affordable parking and a variety of public transport options a short walk away, and as a company that regularly commutes to London, Stockport train station with direct links to Euston has been a huge draw for us.”

Rhys Owen, Leasing Director at Orbit Developments, added:
“1 St Peters Square is our premium property in the town centre, having undergone a comprehensive refurbishment throughout. Securing a returning customer of the calibre of Distology is testament to the quality of the building, but also the changes taking place across this part of the town centre.

“Being so close to a growing range of amenities really helps a company to develop bonds between employees and teams outside of the work place.

“Modern, forward-thinking tech businesses are showing a real interest in Stockport and we are seeing a strong, healthy demand for space like No 1, where companies can make their mark and provide staff with a workplace to attract the best talent across Greater Manchester and further afield.”
