A CRITICAL infrastructure and managed services firm has become the latest business to move into a £55 million park on Teesside, designed to attract innovation to the area.

Durata specialises in critical power infrastructure for data-led industries such as banks, hospitals and government sites.

The 20-employee-strong firm operates throughout the UK and Europe as well as the Middle East, providing energy technologies and real-time automation services into integrated solutions for data centres, infrastructure and industries.

John McGee, managing director of Durata, said: “Our move to the prestigious TeesAMP development has been part of our strategic plans for the last two years. We are proud to be able to grow our presence in our home town of Middlesbrough.

“TeesAMP gives us the opportunity to attract new clients in and around Tees Valley, and our focus is very much on the innovative companies, and industry-leading cluster of technology based businesses that are right here on our doorstep.”

TeesAMP, which is still growing, was developed by Middlesbrough-based property developers Chaloner Group, in partnership with Middlesbrough Council and Tees Valley Combined Authority (TVCA) to attract innovation and job opportunities in the area.

Councillor Ashley Waters, executive member for regeneration at Middlesbrough Council, said: “TeesAMP is a hugely significant project for Middlesbrough and the wider Tees Valley, and we’re thrilled that it is already attracting businesses and creating job opportunities for local people.

“It’s great to see Durata scaling up its operations within Middlesbrough’s thriving digital and technology sectors. I wish them all the best in their new home at TeesAMP.”
