Leading open-source ecommerce platform Shopware is strengthening its UK business with the opening of a dedicated London office.
The platform has enabled more than £5 billion in gross ecommerce volume, establishing itself as a largest ecommerce platform operating in the German market.
Since actively entering the UK market in 2016, the team has worked closely with its vast ecosystem of major brands and partner agencies to adapt its software for local requirements.
Shopware saw a 500% growth rate increase over the past 18 months. The new premises will serve the company to further facilitate the expansion, and establish the UK as a core market.
To further expand its resources in response to an increased demand, the company’s chief executive officer, Stefan Heyne will relocate from Germany to lead the on-site team. This will include highly skilled sales specialists, enterprise relations managers, and partner managers.
“The past 18 months have proven that the UK is one of our most important markets. This has been illustrated through an increased demand for Shopware’s solutions, resulting in a requirement for permanent premises in the UK,” says Stefan Heyne.
He concludes: “We’re now pleased to unveil the plans for our new London office, opening in August 2018, which we believe will help us to become the UK’s leading ecommerce platform.”
