The expansion comes as the Fife-based company, which intends to take on 20 staff in its home town this year, reports growing demand for its services around the world. The business currently employs more than 70 staff in total.

Exterity, whose solutions allow companies to stream television and video content around business facilities, has invested £250,000 in switching to the 13,000 square foot office and production space.

Chief executive Colin Farquhar said: "Our previous facility we literally had folk sharing desks over the last few weeks because we really had no space for anyone to go. Now we have office accommodation that's currently taking about 50 people but has space for 100. This year alone we have hired something like 10, 12 people, so we are very aggressively hiring.

"That's the investment we are making that's really key - this facility gives us the opportunity to continue the growth that we have enjoyed."

Asked which type of roles Exterity is looking to fill, Mr Farquhar said recruitment will focus on a mix of software engineers and business functions such as finance, operations and marketing.
