LIFELINE IT OPENS THIRD SITE – IN THE NETHERLANDS
Published: 12 December 2022
Lifeline IT is expanding into Europe with the launch of a new office in Amsterdam.
The site, based in the centre of Amsterdam, will be the company’s third location following the opening of its Peterborough office in 2021 and its first site in North London when Lifeline IT was founded in 2002.
A five-minute walk from Amsterdam Central Station, the office will be a base to service existing clients and also grow the Lifeline IT business internationally. The company chose Amsterdam because of its strong transport links across Europe, excellent business connections and high number of English speakers.
Commenting on the launch, Lifeline IT’s Daniel said: “Britain may have left the EU but Lifeline IT is very much still part of Europe by opening our third location in the city of Amsterdam. We’re in the process of recruiting a local team to add to our existing staff in the Borehamwood and Peterborough offices.
“Many of our clients have European offices so it made complete sense to expand into Europe so we can continue to service our existing clients without the various logistical challenges that Brexit has brought. Amsterdam has fantastic transport links – we can be at the office in four hours from London – and it’s very much a global city that’s a great place to do business. The fact that the majority of people speak English will allow us to work seamlessly between the three Lifeline IT offices.”
Added Lifeline IT’s Adam: “We’re incredibly excited about the new office and it’s a great way to mark the end of our 20th anniversary year. As well as servicing existing clients, we’re also hoping to expand the Lifeline IT offer to more companies in Amsterdam and beyond, based on our core values of excellent customer service and a thorough understanding of clients’ businesses and their IT needs.”
The new Lifeline IT office is based in a former Amsterdam bank at 1st Floor, Singel 250, 1016 AB, Amsterdam. Tel: +31 (0)20 8089 838.
