Why Quanta

Following a management buyout in 2018, a new name, vision and set of values was developed to reflect the new direction of the company.

The name Quanta is derived from the meaning of ‘one particle’, the idea of unity, simplicity and essence. Quanta is centred around the customer, identifying and understanding motivations, and working in partnership to realise ambitions.
