Certus TG enters into an agreement to be acquired by SysGroup PLC

Certus TG, leading Welsh managed IT services consultancy based in Newport, South Wales announces it has been acquired by SysGroup, in a deal set to accelerate growth and deliver a real competitive advantage to its enlarged customer base.

Certus Technology Group are committed to delivering the best to its customers, both now and in the future. To achieve that they are constantly looking for ways to extend their service offerings – be that through expanded capabilities, experience and skills or geographical and sector reach. The acquisition enhances all of that; the combined power of SysGroup and Certus TG means that it will be able to amplify existing capabilities and leverage the benefits of an even bigger team.

SysGroup is on a journey to becoming the leading provider of Managed IT Services & Cloud Hosting in the UK. The acquisition of Certus TG’s managed services portfolio and vendor accreditations such as Dell EMC Gold Partner status will be valuable additions to the existing SysGroup portfolio of services and strategic vendor partnerships. Additionally, its extended geographical reach will now include South Wales, the South West and along the M4 Corridor, whilst Certus will gain a physical presence in central London, the North West & Midlands. The deal will also enhance SysGroup’s datacentre footprint, with the addition of Certus’ 80 rack suite, located in the Tier 3+ Next Generation Data facility in Newport, South Wales.

Paul Brown, CEO of Certus Technology Group said: “The combination of the SysGroup and Certus Technology Group customer bases will open up a raft of fantastic cross-sell opportunities and will further solidify our presence in existing verticals whilst expanding our reach into new ones. Certus’ managed services portfolio and vendor accreditations such as Dell EMC Gold Partner status will also be valuable additions to the existing SysGroup portfolio of services and strategic vendor partnerships. Most importantly, from interactions that I’ve had with SysGroup during the course of the last 3 months, I’ve seen first-hand that we share a common vision for customer excellence and company culture. Together, I believe we will be even stronger than ever before.”

SysGroup’s acquisition of Certus TG is the latest in a string of deals made by SysGroup in recent years, further accelerating the group’s ambitious growth strategy and expanding its capabilities. With an already established presence in Financial Services, Retail, Insurance, Charity, Education and Healthcare, the deal will extend SysGroup’s reach into Professional Services and Manufacturing.

Adam Binks, CEO of SysGroup, added: “I am delighted to be welcoming both the Certus TG team and its customers to the SysGroup family. The addition of Certus to the group represents a step-change regarding the scale of the business, better positioning SysGroup to penetrate our target market and drive further growth. This acquisition fits within our strategy of growing the business organically and through strategic acquisitions, and we are excited by the prospects that lie ahead.”

Newport-headquartered Certus TG, which also has offices in Hemel Hempstead, is one of Wales’ fastest-growing technology consultancies and continued to see expediential growth throughout 2018 and remaining into 2019, through their enhanced drive for innovation and facility to empower engineers to stay ahead of the curve.
