News : Firm Moves its UK Headquarters to Portsmouth
Oct 15, 2013 -- A European provider of affinity insurance is to move its UK base to Portsmouth next month.
SPB will be moving most of its operations from Ryde on the isle of Wight, where it had been based since 2001, to Enterprise House in Portsmouth from November 1.
The company’s headquarters is across the Channel in France, and it provides insurance specifically for mobile devices including phones, tablets and laptops to schools, individuals and businesses.
Its staff numbers have doubled during the past six months, and the new Portsmouth office is opening to cope with the expansion.
Colin Whitehair, who joined the business at the start of the year as managing director, said: ‘We are very pleased to be expanding into the new offices – Portsmouth is a fantastic location.
‘The island served the business well for over a decade and we are delighted that so many of our staff have chosen to stay with us in Portsmouth.
‘We will be looking to employ more staff from the local Portsmouth area.’
