Manchester’s proven credentials as one of the UK’s great economic and cultural hubs has attracted, UTP Merchant Services, one of the largest providers of credit card machines and online payment gateways in the UK.

The company has moved its 20-strong workforce into 5600 sq ft of high-quality office space in Orbit Development’s Barlow House on Minshull Street in the city centre.

Headquartered in Reading, UTP Merchant Services was established in 2013 and has become the partner of choice for credit card machines, supplying thousands of UK retail businesses with a fast, simple and secure solution.

UTP is also the only provider to offer same day funding to merchants through its Faster Processing programme and is enjoying international as well as UK growth with new offices recently opened in Gibraltar, Ireland, and Spain.

Sales Director, Jaime Lowe, said they were excited to be joining Manchester’s city centre business community.

“We are looking forward to providing exciting new employment opportunities and being part of the city’s Build Back Better push as we come out of the pandemic. Manchester has a fantastic talent pool, including a large number of foreign language speakers, who can provide tailored native language support to our international customers. “

Safety was also a top priority with the choice of office. Jaime again: “Barlow House provides us with plenty of space to observe social distancing rules and is a high-class facility with an amazing range of amenities nearby for our employees to grab lunch, coffees and much more.”

Commenting on Orbit’s role in facilitating the move Jaime said it had been a great experience. “Their team has provided dedicated and helpful support every step of the way.”

Orbit Development’s Leasing Director Adam Jackson welcomed Jaime and her team to the building and Manchester itself. “Barlow House is an excellent location for the company to deliver its ambitious growth plans, provide jobs for local people and get to know the city. We wish them continued success.”
