On Thursday 24th February, 3Squared were honoured to be visited by Andrew Stephenson MP at their office in the heart of Sheffield, to find out more about how the business is giving back to the local community by generating new opportunities and creating industry changing innovations and new technologies.
The Minister was welcomed and given a walking tour by Tim Jones, Co-Founder and Managing Director, around the office to meet and greet members of the 3Squared team and find out more detail about how 3Squared support the local community; in particular, its academic partnership with local Sheffield Hallam University and apprenticeship scheme, which seeks to create new roles across the region and nurture talent within the innovation space.
The delegates were also given a deep dive into the pioneering technological solutions that 3Squared provide the rail industry with. Highlights included an overview of how 3Squared are enabling the rail industry to solve its complex challenges, its involvement in HS2 and project highlights, including the East Coast Digital Programme (ECDP) and a BulkSmart application demo (developed for HS2), led by Martin Gleadow, Head of IT and Technical Innovation.
Of the visit to the rail consultancy, Andrew Stephenson MP commented: “It was fascinating to see the innovation and ideas that thrive within 3Squared during my visit to their office in Sheffield. It is also positive to have HS2 suppliers in the North, in turn generating new opportunities and growth across the region.”
James Fox, Commercial Director and Co-Founder, said: “It was a fantastic opportunity to take Andrew around the office and give him an insight into 3Squared and how we aim to support the wider rail industry. We are extremely proud of our roots in Sheffield and look forward to playing a key role creating new opportunities across the region, for many more years to come.”
