Starting the new year with strong levels of ‘Activ-ity’

Newcastle-based Activ Technology, plans further expansion following growth across all its divisions in 2019, with annual revenue up 15% and profit by 36%.

Formed in 2010, the company is a managed service provider for IT and telecommunications across the North of England, Cumbria and Scotland.

In keeping with its plans for expansion, the company, which employs over 30 staff and recently opened a new office in Dumfries, Scotland, has also made a number of key appointments in recent months, including Leon Hughes as head of technology and Carol Logan as business development manager.

Last year, substantial new client wins for the company included chartered surveyors and property consultants, youngsRPS.

Managing director, Ian Gillespie, said: “2019 was our busiest year yet and whilst January is traditionally a quiet month for a lot of businesses, we are full steam ahead! We are buoyed by the figures from last year and feel it is a very clear indicator that our development strategy is working.

“Our sales team is set to increase in size this year as we put growth at the centre of our plans for 2020 and we expect to be announcing a number of new key appointments in the coming months.

“The team is very close knit and deliver strong results in everything they do. As we continue to grow at an exponential rate, we will not dilute the quality of our staff. We will take time and exercise due diligence when picking each and every new person that joins us.

“It is a very exciting time for Activ Technology and we foresee continued growth across all our divisions this year. Our rapidly expanding, dedicated team and growing number of fantastic clients, means we are in the very best position to make 2020 another strong year.”
