Origin Broadband is making a £2.5m investment in new premises in Manvers, Rotherham as the company continues to compete with the top five players in the UK telecommunications market.

Launching in 2011, Origin has developed its own infrastructure and now host the sixth largest broadband network in the UK. Supplying phone and internet services to businesses and homes across the UK, clients include Amazon – where Origin is the preferred provider for all new warehouse and corporate sites, NHS Sheffield and various UK universities.

Origin aims to reach 250,000 customers by 2020 and is taking a 53,665 sq ft unit which provides the opportunity for future growth.

Oliver Bryssau, CEO of Origin Broadband, said: “We are really excited about Origins’ Head Office moving to Manvers. Doncaster has been a fantastic home for us, but our two current sites are no longer big enough to accommodate our future growth plans. Having both our Residential and Business divisions under one roof will help us share best practice across the whole of Origin.”
