Opening Ferranti UK Office in Manchester.

18 Feb 2016 - 15:45

After 20 years, Ferranti Computer Systems returns to Manchester and opened its office in MediaCity on February 11th 2016. The office will support the growing customer base for their Microsoft based MECOMS™ solution.

Aside from the excellent communication and business links in the North West, Manchester is also a homecoming for the company. Ferranti started life as a UK electrical engineering and equipment firm since 1885. The group diversified over the years and led the development of IT in the latter half of the Twentieth century.

You still can admire ‘The Ferranti Mark 1’ in the museum of science and industry in Manchester. It was the world's first commercially available electronic computer which was also known as the MADAM (Manchester Automated Digital Machine).
