Headquartered in Newport, Wales, Certus Technology Group, which also has an office in Hemel Hempstead, has acquired Ensphere Consulting in a deal worth £2m.
Certus TG provides more than 120 clients across the UK with infrastructure and services ranging from managed IT support and security to advanced storage solutions, cloud services and desktop virtualisation.
Based in Warrington, Ensphere Consulting has a turnover of £2.8m and employs 30 members of staff. It uses state-of-the-art Sage enterprise software to support around 90 clients across the UK. Ensphere’s technical expertise allows it to assess how clients operate and then identify IT solutions to improve operations, saving them time and money.
Nigel Griffiths, chief operating officer of Certus TG, said, ‘This is an exciting time for the business, with this acquisition representing an important milestone in our expansion strategy. By combining these two businesses, it will help us to uncover opportunities in new marketplaces. We will be able to provide software solutions from Sage, as well as underlying infrastructure, IT support and business storage for businesses based across the UK.’
Managing director of Ensphere Consulting Wayne Nolan, who joins the board of Certus TG and will continue to oversee the Sage side of the business, said, ‘We are delighted to be part of the Certus TG group and believe that this move will have a positive impact on existing customers as we will now be able to providing businesses with all the IT technical and business related services they may require.’
