Consilium: new headquarters


Consilium Technologies opens new corporate headquarters in Belfast following recent US expansion.

One of Northern Ireland’s leading tech companies, Consilium Technologies, has announced the opening of its new corporate headquarters in Belfast. The company recently launched a major expansion at their North American facility in Boston and this move will allow the firm to scale its UK operations alongside its US facility. The move coincides with the company’s leading product TotalMobile™ announced as a medallist for the UK Mobile IT Innovation Award.

Previously based in the Antrim Technology Park, the firm has moved all business functions to Pilot Point in the heart of Clarendon Dock, Belfast.

Founded in 1985, the company was originally located in East Belfast. Two years later the team moved to the Antrim Technology Park where it has remained until now. In 2007, the software development team moved to the Northern Ireland Science Park to focus on the further development of TotalMobile™. The move to Pilot Point will see for the consolidation of all business and development operations in one location.

Speaking following the announcement of the new premises, Consilium Technologies CEO Colin Reid said: “Earlier this year we were delighted to announce an expansion to our North American operations. I said then that our US expansion would also have a positive effect here at home in Northern Ireland and the announcement is the first evidence of this.

“The decision to leave Antrim was not an easy one but the Consilium Group has now grown to such a size that we had to look elsewhere for facilities with the capabilities to accommodate all of our staff, under one roof.

“The new office will allow us to merge all operations into a single location. The Pilot Point facility will house our software development team, sales and marketing, business development and customer services. We have great plans for further expansion and we need our team all working together in one place to achieve this.”

Reid concluded: “We will be sad to bid farewell to Antrim. It’s been home to the Consilium Group for 24 years, but Pilot Point is a terrific location, right at the heart of Belfast’s thriving business community. “We have no doubt the move signals the start of even bigger things for us as a company and with TotalMobile™ commended for this award, it has already begun.”

Shortly after the move, Consilium’s latest innovation, TotalMobile™ secured a medal for the 2011 Mobile IT Innovation of the Year at the UK IT Awards.
