Leading business improvement specialists relocate to Harrogate

in Business/Harrogate

As part of recent growth within the company, business improvement specialists Applied Acumen have relocated their Head Office to the Hagg’s Farm Business Park near .

MD Keith Armstrong stated: The superb facilities at Hagg’s Farm allow both for the recent company growth and future expansion. We are delighted to relocate from to Harrogate, and in addition to the offices we have in Cirencester, we also opened an Eindhoven office last year to support the growth of work we are doing in the Netherlands.


Whilst Applied Acumen are a Yorkshire based company, they work both in Europe and the US. As Keith explained: Companies are facing more and more challenges in the business world, including rising costs, weaker sterling, the New Living Wage, and the other associated challenges that come as part of .

Material availability and migrant will also provide increasing challenges as the UK commences its exit from Europe. The opportunities Applied Acumen can provide a business in terms of improving productivity, efficiencies and cost saving are only going to continue to increase.

With consultants located throughout the UK, Applied Acumen work in the food sector, as well as manufacturing and distribution. With a low risk, high return approach, whereby initial costs are shared and deferred, customers only make payment when the agreed benefits are achieved.

Commenting on this core company value, Keith noted: If we don’t deliver – you don’t pay. This approach has resulted in us consistently delivering across different sectors and different areas of business over the last 15 years, in over 120 successful programmes ranging from smaller companies to multinationals.

We look forward to continuing this success from our new base in Harrogate.
