Virocom set for expansion

Telecoms reseller Virocom is to move to bigger premises and double its workforce in the coming months.

Previously based near the Gherkin building in the City of London, the firm has now moved to offices near London Bridge. Managing director Julian Andrews revealed that his workforce has increased from 11 to 17 staff in the past three months and he plans to hire five more people in the near future.

The new premises is 4,000sqft, three times the size of Virocom’s

previous building. Some of that space has been sub-let, but Andrews claimed his company plans to double its workforce over the next two years and expects to take over the remaining space within that time.

Andrews said: “The expansion of our sales force means that we need more support staff to make sure that we can offer our customers better support. As a company, we have to keep abreast of emerging technologies because if we do not, someone else will.”

Andy Horn, head of telecoms vendor Colt’s UK SME division, said: “We recently signed a partnership with Virocom as it is exactly the kind of partner with which we want to do business ­ proactive and skilled.”
