r2p and Nimbus Journey Information have moved offices due to expansionFollowing an incredibly successful year, Nimbus Journey Information will ring in the Christmas season in their brand-new Yorkshire offices. The company, who provide cutting-edge transit solutions across major public transport networks, are opening their new northern branch in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, due to an expanding workforce there.
The new office move comes on the back of Nimbus’s exciting work with West Yorkshire Combined Authority and the highly successful merger with German-based transit solutions providers r2p in June this year. The r2p Group already operates in 45 countries worldwide, and Nimbus’s new office space in Barnsley will be the base for all r2p’s operations in the North.
Across 3,000 square feet, the new r2p office in Yorkshire will be made up of workshops, offices, a dedicated sales area and a boardroom. Located just off the main Hoyland High Street in Barnsley, the new office space is able to accommodate an ever-growing team as well as benefitting from excellent transport links, just a short walk from Elsecar train station and conveniently close to the M1 and A6195 motorway networks.
Russell Gard, Managing Director of Nimbus and part of the r2p Management Board, says: “It’s been a big year for Nimbus – our team has grown hugely in response to growing demand for our products, and we have gone through a huge transition by entering into an exciting new partnership with r2p. This new office marks a new chapter for both Nimbus and r2p, and we look forward to establishing ourselves as biggest supplier of Real Time information in the country”.
Bjarne Nielsen, Managing Director of r2p Tracking, is equally excited about r2p’s new regional office space: “We’re so proud to include Nimbus Journey Information in the r2p Group – with them on board, we are able to offer more integrated transit solutions across the UK and Europe. We can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store!”
The regional office is located on 12a Hall Street, Hoyland, Barnsley, S74 9JR. Nimbus and r2p also have a head office in the South of England, based in Crawley, West Sussex.
The rapidly growing r2p Group – headquartered in Flensburg, Germany – operates internationally in 45 countries with subsidiaries in Denmark, Brazil and England. With a silent partnership in Taiwan, a sales office in the Czech Republic, and local manufacturing in India, r2p takes pride in being a truly global company.
