Accident management company Amber Claims is gearing up for an office move and a significant expansion. The Liverpool based company, which handles the administrative process surrounding road traffic accidents for clients including insurance and fleet managers, began life in 2008 and has occupied its current city centre office since 2011.

When director Ian Ambrose moved Amber Claims Management into its current premises he had one employee. By 2012 this had increased to eight staff. Now, with thirty two staff and no additional space to expand in their current location, the company has purchased GDH House in Old Swan, L13.

Purchase of the 15,000 square foot of offices split across 2 floors, was completed at the end of July with the assistance of Century 21 Woolton. Work has begun on the renovation of the previously disused building and is planned to take around 6 months.

Ian Ambrose, director of Amber Claims Management, said:

“We outgrew our city centre offices some time ago and I have been looking for the perfect space to continue our expansion ever since. My plan is that Amber Claims Management will employ 100 people by the end of 2015 and at GDH House we will have the space to achieve that. ”

Ian has some quirky touches planned that will make Amber HQ a very appealing place of work for dynamic, up-and-coming business people. He went on to say:

“People achieve more when they enjoy what they do, so the new offices will be fun as well as highly functional. They will have an on site gym, a roof terrace and even a slide running from the first floor into the main office! My aim is to make Amber the best business to work for in the city.”

Despite the planned additions of a DJ box, a games room and chill out zone don’t be deceived into thinking it is all play and no work at Amber Claims Management. The expansion has been made possible due to the consistent high performance and significant growth that the company has displayed in recent years. The new offices have been designed as the optimal working environment for a growing business, with high speed internet access and the latest telecommunications equipment due to be installed. 3 meetings rooms, a training room and a boardroom will all be co-ordinated via a main switchboard.

Additional ground floor space at GDH House is to be set aside for the use of local entrepreneurs. A selection of young companies will be assigned desk space, as well as a business mentor and access to business services advice from accountants, solicitors and marketing experts. Remarkably, the intention is that all of these services, including use of the office space, will be provided free-of-charge by Amber Claims Management and its associate businesses.

Of the serviced offices Ian said:

“I remember what it’s like to start a business. You need all the help you can get and I am just glad to be in a position to offer that assistance to new companies. It’s nice to be nice and, in business, it pays as well. The start-ups that we help today may well go on to be the clients of the future.”
