An Aberdeen-based IT firm has completed the purchase of a local IT business. The acquisition allows Aberdeen Cyber Security to expand further with an increase in expertise, market reach and headcount. The acquisition process took nine months and the deal was signed September 2020.
Dale Sutherland, Director of Aberdeen Cyber Security:
“This is an incredibly exciting stage in our business. This time last year it was just myself working in the business. In February of this year, we took our first engineer and we are now a team of four. It’s outstanding and I’m grateful for everyone who has made this possible.”
ResQ IT is an IT support company with a history of supporting clients in the demanding Offshore industry. The value of the transaction has not been announced, however, it has been fully funded by Aberdeen Cyber Security for a non-disclosed amount.
ResQ IT staff are being retained and moved across to Aberdeen Cyber Security which now takes the headcount to four with added expertise in cyber security, cloud infrastructure, systems and networking.
Furthermore, the acquisition has allowed Aberdeen Cyber Security to gain a London-based shipbroking firm as a highly valued client.
Aberdeen Cyber Security celebrates its organic growth and would like to thank everyone involved in the acquisition.
