Software firm to move in new Sleaford centre offices

Part of £1.2m refurb at the craft and design centre

By Local Democracy Reporter

The National Centre of Craft and Design will welcome a global business MRI Software into the building.

MRI Software, a worldwide leader in property software solutions, will move into the centre in Sleaford in early October.

The move comes as part of a £1.2 million refurbishment project of the NCCD in Sleaford, to create a modern space for visitors, as well as office space in the town.

All current features of the centre will be retained by a 200 square metre ground extension.

MRI Software first came to Sleaford when it bough Qube Global Software in October 2017.

It will now move from the company’s existing premises in Westgate to the NCCD.

Regional marketing director of MRI Software, James Lavery, said: “Our move to the NCCD facility demonstrates our commitment to the town, to the county and to the talent that emerges in the region.

“We are proud of our company’s roots in Sleaford and are looking forward to being part of an important creative hub for the area.”

North Kesteven District Council leader Richard Wright said the move into the NCCD will be great for both MRI Software and the town of Sleaford.

“It will provide a new home for MRI Software which currently employs more than 60 people in the town and will ultimately bring further vibrancy and financial stability to the national centre.

“The wider £1.2 million project will help us to attract even more visitors to Sleaford by broadening the variety of arts and entertainment on offer and we will also create a local hub whilst still maintaining and developing the centre’s national significance.

“As a council we are committed to championing the arts, something we have done for more than a quarter of a century.”
