Business Name: HUT42
Support Received: Tenant at King’s Lynn Innovation Centre
Location: King’s Lynn, Norfolk
A successful by-product of a marketing agency, HUT42, which launched in November 2016, is one of the latest businesses to move into King’s Lynn Innovation Centre, Nwes’ flagship innovation and business centre in West Norfolk.
We spoke to business owner, Chris Girdlestone about HUT42 and what it’s like to call KLIC home.
Tell us more about HUT42 and what you offer?
We work with customers to determine a cost-effective approach to creating or improving digital systems. We thrive on finding ideal solutions for our clients.
I am immensely proud of all that HUT42 has achieved to date. Establishing the business as its own entity has enabled the team to focus on offering new software and app development services, which were not previously available as part of a digital marketing agency.
What makes you unique?
We invest a lot of time to understand a business and its needs. It is this approach to relationships with customers which is unique.
We don’t just give a generic estimate based on a customer’s brief; we get to know a business and understand what they actually need and want, and work with them to achieve that.
The team and I have the expertise and qualifications to rival some of the bigger corporations, but without the associated overheads, we are able to be competitive.
I have a computing science degree and I used to be a software developer. My technical background is a real asset when explaining how our expertise can help our clients to solve their problems and improve their systems.
