Vectric Invests its Sales Success


Vectric's New Victorian Offices Since last year's presentation of the Queens Award for Enterprise, Vectric's sales have grown by more than 30%. This continued success has allowed us to invest significantly in our business, and June 2011 is shaping up to be a momentous month for the company.

We will start with our move to The Coach House, a beautifully restored Victorian building not far from our current office. With delightful countryside views and accommodation over three floors, the new building means that we can now add to our small and highly motivated team in key areas.
