Air IT has announced it has acquired Oxford-based IT managed service provider (MSP) Riverbank IT Management Limited, and Coventry-based Nexus GS Limited for undisclosed considerations.
The announcement follows Air IT’s acquisition of Netstar UK Limited and Microtrading Limited back in October as the company moves to expand its geographical footprint.
John Whitty (pictured above), CEO of Air IT, explained, “Following the recent acquisitions of Netstar and Microtrading, we are very excited to be able to welcome the Riverbank and Nexus GS teams to the Air IT family. Both businesses bring significant value to the table and will be integral in helping us realise our plans to grow and cement our position as the outsourced IT services partner of choice to the SME community in the UK.
“Both are highly accredited and mature MSPs and will be a great fit for the Air IT group with very similar values, culture and passion for helping clients become more successful, efficient and secure through the adoption of performance enhancing technology.”
Air IT is a UK supplier of managed IT and communication services, which specialises in delivering IT support, cloud, telephony, cyber security, and business intelligence solutions to SMEs throughout the UK. The addition of these highly businesses increases overall headcount to 175 and adds further geographical locations from which to serve Air IT’s growing base of over 1000 clients.
Marc Juffkins (pictured left), managing director and founder of Riverbank IT Management Limited said, “Riverbank has always been committed to providing the very highest standards of service and support to our clients, and we look forward to helping our customers realise the joint benefits that being part of the Air IT group will bring, including access to a broader range of business enhancing services such as managed cyber security and Business Intelligence (BI) as a service.”
Justin Huckfield (pictured right), the Founder and Managing Director of Nexus GS Limited, added, “We’re all delighted to join the Air IT group. They have an excellent reputation and track record. Its investment in support systems and breadth of expertise will enable Nexus GS to better serve and meet the ever-changing needs of our clients. It’s clear that Air IT shares a similar ethos as Nexus GS with people and client-centric values at the core of its operations.”
Air IT said that the combined technical expertise and local reputation of both Riverbank and Nexus GS will allow it to address the Thames Valley market whilst bolstering its position within the West Midlands.
