Air IT announces its third pair of acquisitions

Air IT has today announced its fifth and sixth acquisitions in a series of deals led by CEO John Whitty. The company has acquired Kent-based InfoTech Solutions Limited and Cheshire-based Concise Technologies Limited.

This marks the third time the IT managed service provider has acquired two businesses simultaneously, the first pair in October and the second in December.

As a result of these acquisitions, Air IT has significantly increased its geographical footprint in the North West and the South East. The addition of InfoTech and Concise Technologies increases the group’s headcount by 50, with an additional 250 customers.

John Whitty, CEO of Air IT, explained, “We want to be regarded as the de facto MSP of choice for SMEs across the UK and these acquisitions allow us to expand our footprint and gain skilful, like-minded team members. Entering the North West has always been one of our strategic goals, along with future growth in the North East, and we now have the capability to deliver a national offering, serviced locally, which is so important to SMEs.”

David Southern (pictured above, right), managing director of Concise Technologies, said, “Becoming part of the Air IT group will allow us to offer even more strategic and business-enhancing services to our clients. We’re excited to join forces with a group of forward-thinking MSPs who recognise the value of digital transformation and world leading service.”

Jason Foord (pictured above, left), managing director of InfoTech, added, “Being part of this select group will allow us to expand our service offering whilst we bring to the table our expertise in the financial, construction and manufacturing sectors. After a period of steady growth, we are excited to take this next step in our journey whilst retaining the same culture and top-quality standard of service our clients are used to.”

Backed by August Equity, the acquisitions were effective from 2nd March 2021 and were completed with undisclosed considerations.
