CMI has bought BTA, a similarly-sized MSP based in London. The acquisition of BTA takes CMI to a turnover in excess of £11m and a staff of 100, based in three sites across the UK – Belfast, London and Maidenhead.
This increase allows CMI to gain wider access to the UK market and further cements its commitment to the IT sector and the businesses it serves, it says. The acquisition was funded by leading growth equity provider Panoramic Growth Equity. BTA has operated for 25 years in the UK and offers a range of services, including IT support, security and compliance, disaster recovery, cloud technology, and network and internet services. The company has 50 employees and a customer base of 250, including clients from financial, manufacturing, and professional services sectors among others.
Ken Roulston, Managing Director of CMI: “The acquisition of BTA will create an even stronger IT service provider. We take great pride in providing our customers with the best advice, so that they get the most from their IT investment. Bob Brittaine, our Chairman, Graham Stead, Client Relationship Director, Michael O’Neill, Managed Services Director, and I have over 100 combined years in the IT services sector. Now we have been joined by Darron Millar as Technical Solutions Director and Victoria Millar as Client Services Director, and we are very excited about what the future holds.”
