Managing Director Christopher Lee said: “On Yorkshire Day, I am immensely proud that we are moving to new premises in Leeds.

"To be in a position to take the full building, whilst retaining offices in Huddersfield and to welcome three new employees, is a tremendous reflection of the team and our clients.”
