Rob and Emma were shown around the digital services agency, which was created by Ray Robinson and Marcus Hayes, both from Low Hill. It has been based at the Wolverhampton Science Park since 2011 but will now be based at the Old Rectory on Waterloo Road with plans to double in size. The company currently works with the Government and the private sector on a variety of different digital programmes including cyber security projects and improving online access for people with disabilities.
In addition, the agency will launch a training academy in the new year where apprenticeships and training for clients and FlatWorldWork employees will take place. FlatWorldWorks is looking for people aged 18 and over with an interest in security to train as specialists.
Rob Marris MP said: “I am very pleased to see that FlatWorldWorks’s success has allowed them to expand in Wolverhampton. Local businesses are absolutely vital to the local economy and so I am delighted to see that they have been able to find new premises in the centre of Wolverhampton that will allow them to continue their good work here long into the future.”
Emma Reynolds MP said: "It is great to see local Wolverhampton people staying in the city and developing successful businesses here. My best wishes go to FlatWorldWorks and I wish them the best of luck with their future in their new premises here in Wolverhampton."
Ray Robinson and Marcus Hayes said that it had been a pleasure for Rob and Emma to have joined them in their celebrations and to be able to tell him a little more about the business. They also said: “We have grown at an exceptional pace. We moved to the Old Rectory because we had outgrown our offices at the science park, but also because we are going to need more space to grow even further.”
