Motion Software has targeted further growth after a six-figure investment package allowed the firm to double the size of its Aberdeen headquarters.

The company, which provides software and hardware for the oil and gas industry, has bought the two-storey building outright, having previously leased part of the premises.

The new 3,800 square foot facility, which features a training suite, will allow the business to build upon a period of recent success. The £600,000 investment has been supported by Clydesdale Bank.

Motion’s staff numbers have risen from 18 to 25 in the past year, including four personnel who have joined the company in the past six months.

Managing director Stephen Burt said: “Despite the challenging conditions around the oil and gas industry at present, we are continuing to experience a high level of demand for our products and services from North Sea businesses and clients as far afield as Houston, Dublin and Abu Dhabi.”

Stephen Hepburn, head of Clydesdale Bank’s business and private banking centre in Aberdeen, said: “Motion Software’s decision to purchase its premises provides an excellent springboard from which to target future growth.”
