3D Group are making moves

* 3DG-new-building.jpgThe past two years have been challenging for most businesses, with the logistical problems that came with Brexit and not to mention Covid-19. Nevertheless, we have continued to provide the industry with the best service possible, not taking our foot off the gas. What became more apparent when our staff started to return to the office was the lack of space at our current location. Over the past nine years that we have been at our present site, we have expanded, repurposed rooms and even developed into next door's building.

We have always struggled with space, and since taking on new team members and a plan to take on more in the future, we have decided to make the leap and move to a better-suited site.
