Climb, the Gateshead-based digital marketing and e-commerce platform developer that was part of the merger that created the Precision Proco Group, is looking to increase headcount by almost 50%.

The nine-staff business, which co-developed the e-commerce platform used by Where The Trade Buys, is looking for around four skilled developers to join the £500,000 turnover business as it looks to play its part in delivering its share of the parent’s group’s £100m growth plan.

When the merger of Precision Printing, Prime Group and Proco was announced earlier this month, group CEO Gary Peeling described Climb as being “imperative” to future growth through enabling it to not only expand its own WTTB offering, but also offer e-commerce services to the group’s clients looking to adapt to the post-Covid landscape.

Climb managing director, Chris Henderson said this e-commerce ramp-up as well as some “under wraps” developments, which the group will unveil later this year and also in 2021, and that would “have a huge impact on selling print products online” had driven the recruitment drive.

“We’re initially looking for around four new people to join the team at what is a very exciting time because we are pushing the boundaries and working on some really cutting edge products,” he said.

“We are working on some really brilliant projects and it’s a very exciting time for the company.”
