Heywood telecoms company celebrates ten years in borough

Date published: 12 May 2019

A growing Heywood technology company is celebrating a decade in the town.

Atrium Telecom, who provide and install telecommunications for clients across the UK, moved into The Old Police Station in 2009, after transferring from Bury.

Heywood-born operations director Kevin Beswick transferred the business to his home town, and expanded from a 500 square foot office to now occupying over 2,000 square feet, employing nine members of staff – with plans to recruit more.

Now boasting over 200 clients, ranging from a firm of international solicitors in New York to local logistics giant The Yearsley Group, Kevin says the firm is very proud of its Heywood roots and remains committed to the town.

He said: “We love the environment and atmosphere here, lots of like-minded business people around the place and support when we need it. The Old Police Station building is a real talking point for our clients when they visit us and it’s been flexible enough to accommodate our expansion.”

Never standing still, Atrium Telecom have plans to expand to become a 24 hour a day, 365 days a year operation and are on course to double their revenue this financial year, recruiting a Business Development Manager, two service desk executives and an apprentice in the process.

Kevin added: “It’s really important to build a great team of people, and that’s what we’ve got at Atrium. I’m proud at how far we’ve come and excited about the future here.

“Since 2009 our staff have shown exceptional determination and our success is a tribute to their hard work.”
