DMC02 at the Seam in Barnsley is now open for business. The digital hub, which is owned and managed by Barnsley Council, offers premium office space and state-of-the-art facilities for tech entrepreneurs.
The hub, which has been designed to promote hands-on tech innovation and collaborative working, features an attractive atrium, fully-equipped Maker Lab and spacious co-working space. Its current tenants include Contrac IT and Walnut Creative as well as SÜD, which has moved its machinery testing business here from Billingham in the North East.
Cllr Tim Cheetham, Barnsley Council’s Cabinet portfolio holder for regeneration and culture, said: “We are very pleased to see DMC 02 open its doors as a key part of our new digital campus, The Seam. We look forward to welcoming new businesses into its excellent facilities; and seeing them grow and create new tech jobs in the heart of Barnsley. They will be joining a strong collaborative and creative business community which is already thriving at DMC 01.”
Dan Jarvis, Mayor of the Sheffield City Region, said: “It’s fantastic to see Barnsley Digital Media Centre’s new digital business hub open for business. DMC 02, which has received more than £2 million investment from the Sheffield City Region’s Local Growth Fund, will play a hugely important part in securing Barnsley’s role at the heart of digital technology and innovation in the North.”
DMC manager Tracey Johnson said: “DMC 02 is a fantastic expansion of our work at DMC 01. Our aim right across The Seam is to enable the growth of specialist digital businesses as well as forward-thinking businesses which embrace technology.
