Box plans to relocate to bigger offices in London

Box, an online file sharing and cloud-based content management service for businesses, has outlined its plans to move to larger offices in London.

Having seen considerable growth in the past year, the company has outgrown the London office it currently occupies. Box moved into this property less than 12 months ago.

California-based, the technology firm also revealed that it was aiming to take on 100 new members of staff in Europe, the Middle East and Asia (EMEA). The office move will coincide with these plans.

Speaking to V3, David Quantrell, Box’s European manager, stated: “We have a goal to hire 100 people in EMEA by the end of the year and have already hired 50 employees since we launched last June.

“This summer, our London team will be moving to a larger facility that caters for 150-plus employees with an option to double the size of the space as we continue to grow.

“Box is investing millions into its London team expansion and the European market. It’s critical to our success and we’ve centralised our European efforts out of London,” Mr Quantrell concluded.

Although Box is planning to open offices in other European countries, such as Germany and France, London will remain its operations hub.
