Connectus makes acquisition to support growth

Doncaster based connectivity and business managed services company Connectus has made an acquisition as part of its growth strategy.

IT For Growth is the company's second in five months and forms part of an "aggressive strategy for growth" planned for 2024 and beyond. It follows the acquisition of Mango Tech.

The deal for the Grimsby-based firm will enable Connectus, which has offices in Salford and Doncaster, to extend its reach into North East Lincolnshire.

This will allow the business to connect to more customers boosting its existing 500-plus client base across the North of England and the Midlands.


Roy Shelton, chief executive at Connectus, said: "This is another major chapter in the story of Connectus. As we continue to scale, we will continually explore potential acquisitions to ensure we can provide our range of fully managed services to as many businesses as possible. 

"This acquisition will allow us to extend into North East Lincolnshire and beyond. The MSP space is experiencing huge consolidation at the moment and as we continue to remain focussed on sustainable growth and outstanding customer services. As a result we will be aiming to complete several more transactions this year."


IT For Growth specialises in enterprise business support and business workshops which provide structured training systems to enable firms to make the correct choices for their business and generate growth. 

Jonathan Cozens, CEO at IT For Growth, added: "I'm delighted to confirm this acquisition. Connectus demonstrated to me that the support, growth and long term development of our customers are of the highest importance to them. They offer a notably better support level than we can deliver at our current size. Although we have been very successful at delivering a first class customer experience over the last seven years, the limited size of our team means we don't have the breath strength in depth to deal with the size of the opportunity around our client base and the local area.

"Connectus' superior scale means they will be able to provide an ongoing technology partnership for your business as you grow. Their track record in enterprise IT systems means they can advise from a position of authority on how best to achieve the commercial outcomes you want, regardless of intended size."
