An expanding software developer has opened a new office on Wearside.
Waymark has expanded into the North East Business and Innovation Centre (Bic).
Commercial Director Paul Lofthouse said: “We’ve worked with a couple of clients from Sunderland already and have been keen to expand into the city for some time.
“It’s a major city and we’re confident there is plenty of business for us to go at in Sunderland.
“Our expansion has accelerated recently – we’ve taken on three people in the last month alone – so the time felt right to move into Wearside.
“We thought that if we were serious about moving into a new area, we needed a presence. We looked at various options on Wearside and felt the BIC was right for us.”
