Cheshire IT services experts boom north of the border
Cheshire IT services company adept4 is enjoying strong growth with a host of new staff appointments in the past 12 months - thanks largely to success in Scotlnd.
The business, based at Daresbury Park, has more than doubled its staff base since 2012, taking its team to almost 50 people, following the recruitment of ten new team members.
The adept4 team, which has official partner status with some of the world’s leading technology vendors, provides businesses with tailored IT systems and continues to recruit to fill technical positions at all levels.
In the past12 months the compnay has opened a new office in Aberdeen and a won several significant contracts, including a three year agreement to provide services to HR company Hunter Adams at its offices in Aberdeen and Edinburgh. The firm also won a one year contract with specialist oil and gas sector accountancy firm FW Accounting based in Aberdeen.
adept4 CEO, Peter Birkett, said: “We have had a fantastic 12 months and are continuing to witness significant expansion. This has been driven by a combination of organic and acquisition-led growth and we’re delighted to be bolstering our presence in the North West, and also expanding out into Scotland.
“The development of our Aberdeen office and the contracts we’ve won in Scotland signify our growing presence in the oil and gas sector. This is a very exciting area with huge potential for growth and expansion. It’s also a sector where high-quality end-to-end expertise and customer service are valued, so we’re taking hold and making the most of the opportunities available in this rapidly developing area.
“Our extensive training and development programme ensures adept4 consultants, technicians and service delivery teams are equipped with the latest skills and that is a very attractive proposition to potential employees, who recognise the value of such intensive, quality training. We’ve been very pleasantly surprised by the quality of applicants that we are attracting and we’re looking forward to continuing to welcome the brightest and best on board.”
The company has seen turnover grow from £3.5 million in 2012 to an expected £6 million in 2014, due in part to the success of its Aberdeen office. The move is part of a wider strategy to tap into the buoyant North Sea oil and gas sector and followed the six-figure buyout of Aberdeen-based IT company K10 Solutions in May.
