Visualsoft featured in the local Evening Gazette this week, which reported on our relocation to Stockton town centre, which will be happening next month.
The story, which featured in the nebusiness supplement on Thursday, highlights the benefits of our move into the town centre, with councillor Bob Cook stating that ”Visualsoft were committed to staying in Stockton and wanted to be in the town centre because they can see what our £20m regeneration is bringing to the town and that things are really beginning to happen here”.

AN AWARD-WINNING web development company’s move into Stockton has been welcomed as a major boost for the town centre.
Visualsoft is to move from its premises in Portrack Lane into the historic Gloucester House on Church Road. The company has bought the freehold of the building from Stockton Council.
With a portfolio of more than 500 websites from small, local boutiques to large multi-national stores, Visualsoft has 100 employees, including more than 20 apprentices.
And the authority has welcomed the move as good for both the town and for the company.
Formed in 1998, Visualsoft has been based in Stockton for six years, first at Preston Farm and more recently at Portrack Lane. The company has also recently opened offices in Newcastle and London.
The company has invested a six-figure sum to buy Gloucester House from the authority and will now carry out improvements to the structure before moving in later this summer.
Originally an 18th Century merchant’s house, the Grade II*- listed building became vacant after the transfer of services to the council’s £1.9m Customer Service Centre in the newly-refurbished Stockton Central Library last year.
Councillor Bob Cook, the authority’s leader, said: “This is great news for Stockton and the regeneration of its town centre.
“They have become a real success story and have responded fantastically to the recession.”
“We deal with major international partners such as Google, PayPal and Amazon and these new offices will provide a setting when we showcase our business to these and other clients.
