Bolton to be the new home of UK's leading gaming accessory company

May 6 2008

THE leading gaming accessory company in the UK, ACCESSORIES4Technology Ltd, is relocating its head office to the heart of Bolton town centre.

ACCESSORIES4Technology, the company behind the 4Gamers brand which has offices in Cologne, Germany and Hong Kong, is moving to state of the art offices at Merchants Place on River Street in the town from its current premises in Worsley in mid May.

Ian Liddle, partner at leading North West law firm Farleys LLP provided the legal advice on the Bolton move and has been the legal advisor to ACCESSORIES4Technology managing director, Andrew Shephard, since he founded the company in 2005.

In that time Andrew and his team has established the company as the leading accessories provider for gaming companies throughout the world.

The company currently produces a range of quality, innovative gaming accessories such as controllers, carry cases and speaker systems, to name a few, for leading global brands such as Nintendo DS, Sony andWii. The company has pioneered the use of character licensing in the gaming sector and produces a range of official Simpsons accessories for Playstation and Nintendo.

Andrew Shephard, Managing Director of ACCESSORIES4Technology which employs 12 people at its head office, said:“The relocation of our office to Bolton is a reflection of how far the business has come and how far it wants to go.

“We have already made massive inroads in to the market, especially in 2007 when we were named the leading gaming accessory provider in the UK and our aim is to continue building on this to become a leading world player.”

Ian Liddle said:“ACCESSORIES4Technology has had fantastic success over the last three years and the move to larger offices in Bolton is testament to this. The move is not only great news for the business but for the local community which is currently going through a period of economic growth and regeneration. I would like to wish ACCESSORIES4Technology all the best for the future.”

The new River Street premises are part of a redevelopment project, by the Charles Topham Group, of traditional mill buildings into state of the art office space.
