12:30pm Saturday 19th October 2013 in News
SMARTLIFE, the global provider of wearable garment technology, has established a new headquarters at Bruntwood’s Booths Park in Knutsford.
The wearable sensor specialist, which has a development base in Leicester, has recently relocated 10 key management personnel to the 220-acre landscaped business centre.
The two-year leasing deal will aid SmartLife’s expansion into the commercial and public sector, as it seeks to increase its channel partnerships and licensee sales.
Smartlife’s innovative wearable garment technology helps to read and interpret the signals given off from the human body and communicate this data wirelessly to any smart device.
Andy Baker is the chief executive of the growing company.
He said: “As a rapidly-expanding, entrepreneurial team we were clearly very impressed with the facilities which were offered to us at Booths Park.
“Our research, product development and production management teams are growing at an astonishing rate, so we therefore needed the flexibility that the business park offers. “ Wearable technology is causing hype on an international level.
Key players such as Google, Nike, Jawbone and Samsung all ready to capitalise on an industry which is predicted to be worth in the region of £4 billion to £5 billion over the next five years, according to a recent report conducted by Credit Suisse.
