A Bedford based tech firm has opened a new office in Bedford to help with its rapid expansion and recruitment plans.

Global software specialist, MatsSoft, opened the new office at Bedford Heights last week becoming one of the building’s largest tenants.

Until then, their 75 members of staff were based just a short distance away at the Pilgrims Centre on Brickhill Drive.

To enable their growth plans, they’ve now taken a 10,303 sq ft space at the former Texas Instruments’ building.

Richard Billington, CTO at MatsSoft, said: “It’s great to move our company into Bedford’s premier business destination.

“As one of the region’s biggest employers of technical talent, it’ll no doubt be an advantage to be based in the iconic Texas Instruments building.”

Tim Pain, director of Verve Developments Ltd, owners of Bedford Heights, added: “As a building with a strong technology heritage thanks to Texas Instruments, it seems very fitting indeed that MatsSoft has taken a large space here at Bedford Heights…

“We are very much looking forward to the company becoming integrated into our vibrant business community.”

MatsSoft is known for developing a low-code application development platform used by brands like Nationwide Building Society, Vodafone and Thomas Cook.

MatsSoft, is part of the Netcall Group of companies, which employs 250 staff in Bedford, Poole, Hemel Hempstead and a team of remote workers.
