A team of global computer experts is expanding more than its storage capacity, with a move to a new HQ in the heart of the North East.

Gaming PC and laptop specialists, CyberPowerPC which had outgrown its Team Valley base, has moved into a new 43,000sqft premises on the Gateshead business park, as the company continues to enjoy increasing growth.

It is the third move into larger accommodation for the company, which was set up in the UK by current MD Brian Lin to bring the globally recognised brand to Europe for the first time over 20 years ago.

Brian said: “CyberPowerPC is a worldwide brand, but had no physical HQ in the UK, which is where we came in and from humble beginnings with a small office and a handful of people, we’ve grown to over 50 employees and moved in to new 43,000sqft base in Team Valley.

“In short, if it’s a PC or a laptop then we can build it, regardless of the application. As we’ve grown the UK arm of the business, we’ve worked to establish a reputation as one of the top PC system integrators in the UK, winning a host of awards for systems servicing consumers and businesses.

“It’s another exciting milestone for us as we move into this new base of operations that will allow us to continue our development and create highly skilled jobs here in North East England.”

CyberPowerPC’s primary business is building and customising PCs and laptops. Customers include gamers, content creators, creative agencies, colleges and universities, developers, aerospace organisations and a host of other industries.

Even prior to the pandemic, gaming was one of the largest industries in the world, but the global lockdown created a boom that could never have been predicted. Demand for PCs and other hardware suddenly increased enormously, and CyberPowerPC has managed to sustain that interest as the world has recovered.

“CyberPowerPC’s growth has been controlled with strong commercial management and now, where we see competitors struggling, we’re expanding so we’re doing something right!” added Brian. “We’re focused on commercial and holistic growth – our ambition is to be both the biggest system integrators and be renowned for the best customer experience.

“UK Land Estates has been our landlord since the beginning, always finding us the ideal the property within its portfolio as we have grown. Unless a premises is suitable, durable and backed by the landlord, business can be extremely challenging. UK Land Estates understands what we do, what we need and collaborates with us to achieve our goals.”

Founded in the United States, CyberPowerPC is leading global brand in the computer market, and with backing from tech giants like Intel, AMD, Nvidia, Asus and Microsoft, it delivers the most up-to-date hardware for wholesale prices.

UK Land Estates commercial director, David Gibbs, said: “CyberPowerPC is an incredible company that works hard to ensure it stays at the very forefront of the computer sector, flexing to meet the ever-changing needs of its client base.

“It has been fantastic to play a small part in the firm’s growth and expansion, and UK Land Estates was delighted to help CyberPowerPC find its new home when they informed us they needed larger premises. Businesses on our sites tend to stay because there is plenty of opportunity to expand within our portfolio, which has a diverse range of unit types and sizes.”
