Connectus targets further growth with latest acquisition

Business managed services company Connectus has completed a further acquisition as part of its growth plans.

The company, which has offices in Doncaster and Salford, has acquired the entire IT managed services customer base of The PC Support Company (PCSC), based in Scunthorpe.

It follows the acquisition of Mango Tech in September and IT 4 Growth in April

Roy Shelton, chief executive at the Connectus Group, said: "As part of our ambitions for organic and inorganic growth plan, I am delighted to announce we have acquired the IT managed services customer base of PCSC. 

"This brings together around 50 businesses who consume a very similar range of products, principally the Microsoft stack, which we can expertly integrate.

"The deal benefits all our customers and will ensure they get access to a great range of hosting, telephony, and cyber security managed services enhanced in a cost-effective, robust and secure manner."

Connectus has grown full-time recurring revenue customers by 233 per cent from 150 in 2019 to 500 today.

This has enabled the company to secure double-digit growth for the past three years, and helped them acquire five companies as well as bringing on the client base of the PCSC.

It has opened an office in Salford and created 19 roles in the business across project planning, engineering and client services.

Shelton added: "This acquisition is another sign of the direction we are determined to take the Connectus in over the years ahead ensuring we focus on delivering compelling outcomes for all of our customers."
