Despite the recession, Bradford based reseller Complete IT is expanding thanks to virtualisation
Despite the recession, Bradford based server reseller Complete IT is expanding thanks to the demand for virtualisation products.
According to the Yorkshire Post, the company has seen a rise in turnover and profit in its fifth year of operation and wants to hire more staff.
Managing director Paul Spence said that the company currently employs 37 people and wants to hit a headcount of 50 as soon as possible.
Turnover was up year-on-year to £8.9 million from £8.2 million the year before while pre-tax profits were up to £511,100 from £182,100.
The reseller, which is owned by Spence and Ben Gregg, sales director, moved into new, larger offices at Thornbury, Bradford.
The company is a reseller of general IT products and services with partnerships including HP, Microsoft, VMware and IBM.
Among the firm’s customer base are William Hill, Raleigh Cycles, Barnsley College and Bradford City Football Club. The company also scored a recent win with the Dublin Titanic Museum.
Spence said that despite the recession, it was a year where Complete IT Systems completed its transition into being a medium-sized business.
Five years ago the company launched from Spence’s home in Bradford, before moving to the Gumption business hub after only three months of trading.
Spence said that the only thing that is slowing down his growth is the ability to find employees with the right skills, particularly around Bradford.
