Aareon acquisition creates new Southampton Science Park base

17 November 2017

Southampton Science Park is set to welcome Aareon UK to its new office suite, 5 Benham Campus soon.

The move cements Aareon UK’s operational merger with Science Park success story 1st Touch, established leader in the supply of mobile workforce software solutions for the UK’s social housing, property services and local government sectors. The merging of company operations at their new 5 Benham Campus base will enable the companies to complete their integration following Aareon Group’s acquisition of 1st Touch in 2012.

Nigel Rees, Joint Managing Director, Aareon UK, commented: “This move is an important milestone in our company’s development. We have had a partnership with Southampton Science Park since 2008 during which time we have grown as an organisation. We see the 5 Benham Campus move as an opportunity to take our business to the next level, not only by creating a great working environment for our staff, but giving us space to welcome our customers and partners, enabling us to work with them in a more effective and agile way.”

Opened by the Rt. Hon Sir Vince Cable MP, 5 Benham Campus is the latest addition to the Science Park’s successful portfolio of accommodation for science and technology businesses. It is also home to Grant Thornton and Tekever Group.
