ALDERLEY EDGE, 1 JUNE 2021
Quint owns and operates a number of fintech businesses which are focused on improving access to credit. The business, which, as well as in the UK, has operations in San Diego, Warsaw, Foshan, Sydney and Cape Town and clients that include major financial services providers like Goldman Sachs, Shawbrook Bank and Admiral, will move its HQ to Glasshouse to support its ongoing growth.
Established in 2009, Quint Group is part of the UK’s fast growing fintech sector, which contributes over £11bn to the economy per year. Greater Manchester, was recently named the largest regional fintech ecosystem by Whitecap consulting, with over 150 firms employing over 8,000 people.
Quint has taken close to 12,000 sq ft of office space at Glasshouse, which is home to businesses specialising in AI, digital health, life sciences, and software development, and digital communications and animation.
Alderley Park is also home to many amenities, including a gym, 400 acres of scenic woodland offering walking, running and cycling routes, coffee shops and The Churchill Tree, a pub and restaurant.
Mike Ransom, Quint Group managing director, said: “For over a decade, and despite a challenging 2020, Quint Group has successfully gone from strength to strength and our old office no longer suited our need for a more flexible and collaborative workspace. After a careful review process, we selected Glasshouse at Alderley Park for our new UK HQ.
“Innovation is what powers our business and so becoming part of an ecosystem of like-minded businesses at Alderley Park will be great for us. And on a more tangible level, it’s a beautiful environment with brilliant amenities that will mean our team is even more excited about coming into the office.”
Kath Mackay, managing director of Bruntwood SciTech – Alderley Park, said: “Glasshouse has been specifically designed for digital and tech businesses, providing space to collaborate, network and grow. It’s the perfect place for Quint to kick start its ambitious growth plans.”
Greg Cox, founder & CEO of Quint Group, added: “Our move to Glasshouse allows us to provide a world class working environment for our fantastic staff in a space that represents where we are and where we are going as a business. I see our move as the start of an exciting new chapter in our growth story.”
Since it was established, Quint has won numerous awards including The Queen’s Award for Enterprise, recognising its growth and international reputation and regularly appears in the Sunday Times Top 100 Companies To Work for list.
