Fujitsu recently announced the closure of its Belfast headquarters on Holywood Road. IrishNews reports the Japanese company decided not to renew the lease on the 23,600 sq ft 2,200 sqm) Computer House, which has been the main base for its operations in Northern Ireland for the past two decades. The three-story building went on the market with an asking price of £2.75 million.
Fujitsu said the move followed the adoption of flexible working for its 600 staff in the north. The company will reportedly choose a new location within the city for its NI HQ in the future.
