ANOTHER FIRM has made a foray into London's burgeoning Tech City, with Beever and Struthers bringing City firm The Company Books (TCB) into the fold.
Beever's merger with the specialist media, digital and technology firm will create a 30-manned London office. Beever and TCB will set up in Bunhill Row, EC1. TCB already has more than 100 clients in the locality.
The merger allows Beever to cross-sell its core accounting and finance services to TCB's existing client base, and vice versa. Other firms, including Blick Rothenberg and KPMG, have set up operations in the area to capitalise on the growing market.
Phil Roberts, managing partner of Manchester-based Beever and Struthers, said: "The integration of our staff with their TCB colleagues at Bunhill Row puts us at the very heart of the action in Tech City. It's a truly collaborative effort, with TCB staff already working on certain Beever and Struthers' clients and our staff set to start working on certain clients of TCB.
"Recent research has shown that sectors including financial services and digital, media and technology will be the drivers of economic growth and this merger gives us the chance to be a key player in helping to deliver that growth."
Tech City, also known as Silicon Roundabout, is the name to describe the Old Street and Shoreditch area of London, which has seen an explosion of entrepreneurial digital, technology and creative companies.
