New home for Applied Computing and Engineering

Applied Computing and Engineering has moved headquarters to a purpose-designed suite on Sci-Tech Daresbury campus in Cheshire, UK.  

The new location provides the company with high-quality facilities and environment, enabling it to enhance its offering to clients worldwide.  

For the last four of 25 years in business it has been based at the Innovation Centre on the Sci-Tech Daresbury site, where it established its client list including Formula 1, Airbus and Nissan.

Re-locating to a larger, dedicated facility on the campus enhances the offering to customers, the company says, helping to deliver bespoke solutions for modelling and simulation in design and manufacture. It also consolidates the company’s technical computing capability at the heart of the campus’ high performance and super-computing community.

The new facility provides office, workshop, server and meeting space, with access to the wider campus and its R&D, conference, leisure and catering facilities. Being close to the region’s airports and motorways offers easy access to the company’s UK and international client base.    

John Baxter, director for IT Services, said: 'We are delighted with the move to Vanguard House and look forward to this being a major step forward for ac&e and its clients. The new facility enables us to design our working processes around client requirements, bringing greater efficiencies and added value.'
