Nublue Celebrates 10 Years!

Stefan Posted by

As some of you may already know, this month we're celebrating our tenth anniversary. With cakes consumed, wine enjoyed and the cobwebs dusted off the office foozball table, the party was in full swing on Friday night. Today we're taking a moment to reflect back on the past 10 years and how far the company has come since it's humble beginnings way back in 2005...

What started out as a dream in a Spanish internet cafe soon became a reality for Michael and Tom, the two founding brothers.  The guys set out to create more high quality IT job prospects in Lancaster and so, with a couple of borrowed PCs and an old beige printer under their arm, they took up residence in the smallest office at Lancaster University’s Infolab: an office which the two affectionately look back on as ‘the broom cupboard’.

What they lacked in resource, they made up for in commitment and pretty soon they were knocking walls down and moving into bigger and bigger offices as the team grew.

Now 30+ strong and still growing, we’re based in the heart of the city, in beautiful canal side offices working with ambitious local clients, and international brands alike.  We have received ISO quality standard and have recently been accredited as a Living Wage employer.  Our portfolio has gone from strength to strength seeing exciting new clients and cherished customers who have stayed with us all the way over the past 10 years.

As readers of the blog will know, we have become an active member of the local community, putting our stamina to the test in the name of charity, and supporting local events.

During the party celebrations on Friday, MD Michael Ashworth had this to say:

“It’s been an amazing first ten years – we’ve come a long way from our early beginnings, and we couldn’t have done it without the hard work and dedication of our amazing team. This birthday celebration is about our team and how you’ve all helped to make the business grow.  I’m just excited to see what the next ten years has lined up for us.”

So as we look ahead to the next 10 years, we look back in fondness at our humble home at Infolab, at the many great projects we’ve worked on, the many great clients, partners and ever expanding team who have helped us to get where we are now, and enjoy the possibilities of where we can go.

From all of us at Nublue, thank you for your continued support.  Here’s to the next 10 years – we hope you can join us on the next leg of our journey…
