The business, which employs more than 100 people, has agreed a deal to move from its base on North Street in Poole and into three floors within the County Gates House office building on Poole Road, near the Westbourne area of Bournemouth.

EPM has taken a total of 14,800 sq ft across the three floors on a 10-year lease. The firm joins Britannia Parking, IT firm IDE and Freedom Health Insurance at the nine-floor County Gates House.

Property consultants Vail Williams represented the building’s private landlord on the deal.

Bryony Thompson, an associate at Vail Williams, said: “The letting to EPM Agency, which helps some of the world’s largest and most prestigious brands and companies, is one of the largest office lettings in the BCP conurbation this year. All three floors are to be extensively furnished to reflect EPM Agency’s brand values before moving staff in and the letting amounts to 28.5% of the building’s total area.

“The company was attracted to the location as staff were keen to be near Westbourne, with its independent shops, bars and restaurants, with the beach a mile away. This office deal is also a good sign of local business committing further to the area, rather than relocating out of the conurbation. It will also mean inward investment, with extra spend at local businesses.”

EMP was formed in 1999 as Electropages, and has provided digital marketing services for tech giants such as Sony, Vodafone and Casio.
