A GRAPHIC design and web development firm is clinching contracts all over the world and has plans for even more growth.

M Media Design, with its subsidiary Property Webmasters, are a web development and graphic design firm. It is based at the Innovation Centre in Hartlepool.

It mainly develops property website portals and estate agency websites. It moved to the Innovation Centre, on the Queens Meadow Business Park in Hartlepool, at the start of the year having previously being based in Stockton.

The company’s business development manager Owain Jenkins said: “We are creating employment. The plans are to get bigger.”

The firm currently employs seven full-time staff in Hartlepool as well as two other developers.

Owain explained why the firm moved to Hartlepool. “This is a fairly new building and it is really impressive. The infrastructure and the internet links are really good which is very important to a business like ours.

“Also, there is so much industry which is based in the Hartlepool area and that is really appealing to us.”

The company does project around the world including in locations such as Bermuda, Thailand and Aistralia. Its work in Bermuda saw the firm develop websites for most of the estate agents there.

Owain added: “It has gone well and it has led to further work.

“Property Webmasters have been running for over eight years and the business is still growing even in a very turbulent market.

“Our key selling point is that we create bespoke websites, we do not use any external template software and each project is bespoke to the individual client.”

As well as international work, the firm is also handling a contract for the website and promotion of a school in Hartlepool.
