Software firm announces move to business park

A software company has announced its move into new headquarters on Bond's Mill business park in Stonehouse.

Director Chris Smith set up the technical services company specialising in embedded software system development, in 2011 and it now serves a number of blue chip clients.

Mr Smith said the decision to take the lease of an office on the Bond's Mill business estate near Stroud marked an important step forward for the business.

"It was just the professional lift I was searching for to take my business to the next level," he said.

"I chose Bond's Mill because it is a thriving business centre in a charming old mill, perfectly located near major road networks. It has excellent facilities with parking and a café.

"I saw many offices in my search for a business location and when I was shown my office I knew it was perfect for my needs."

Lazy Dog Ltd develops, debugs and tests software for a wide range of platforms.

The inspiration for the company name was Mr Smith's eight-year-old Labrador, George.

Bonds Mill is owned by property investor and developer Robert Hitchins and is on the A419 near Stroud.

It offers on-site management with 50 tenants in premises ranging from 100 to 15,000 sq ft and accommodates many start-ups as well as established companies such as UK Power Solutions, Green Gourmet, Omega Resource, Biocensus and BPE Solicitors.

The agent was John Hawkins, of Hawkins Watton Stroud.
