Dahua Technology is expanding its presence in the UK with the opening of a new office in Leeds. This is the first time that the company has expanded in the UK beyond its existing offices in Maidenhead. The new northern office will be located at the White Rose Office Park in Millshaw Park Lane, Leeds, around four miles south of the city centre.
The main aim of establishing a permanent presence in the north of England is for Dahua to provide better support for its local distributors, integrators and installers, as well as to offer training locally and provide a local base for partner events and client demonstrations.
Dahua Technology’s global HQ in China is located in Hangzhou, a city that has been twinned with Leeds since 1988 so it was no surprise when the company approached Leeds City Council to help find a suitable location for its new offices.
“Working with a proactive organisation such as Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership really helps us, because the partnership goes out of its way to create mutually beneficial business activities. It has also helped us set up the new office,” said Ben Perkins, Head of Marketing, Dahua UK and Ireland. “The partnership attracts business and international money to the region, which not only makes a positive impact on the lives of the people who live and work in Leeds, but also brings a great wealth of talent into the area.”
