Virtualisation VAR Blue Chip Data Systems has hailed a "record" year of growth after releasing its latest trading figures.
The firm has posted business levels at an "all-time high" of £14m for the year to October 2009, and has swelled its headcount to 130 in the past year, including appointments of technical experts Martin Saunders and Kelvin Papp, along with sales consultant Kate Limbert. It has seen 30 per cent consecutive growth over the past three years.
Richard Cook, managing director of Blue Chip, said: “This year is confirmation that those who deliver outstanding levels of service and value for money can prosper in even the toughest of times.
“There has been a continued failure rate in the IT industry, including the administration of Hampshire’s own Triangle Computers. This only serves to highlight the importance of working with an IT provider that is financially healthy. The Blue Chip team will enter 2010 in a strong position with an unbreakable focus on the needs of our customers”.
The VAR has also grown its client base as demand for technology such as Unified Communications and server virtualisation increase. Other growth areas include training and outsourced services, the firm said.
Cook added: “While the economy is likely to remain slow, we will continue to invest in the business for the long term, and look to improve the way we work. As a business, we have already pulled far away from many of our traditional competitors and have accumulated business from ‘wobbling’ resellers that posed a risk to their customers.
“We will stick to the fundamental belief that our clients remain at the heart of everything we do. When coupled with the outstanding attitude and commitment of our staff, I know that we have what it takes to seize whatever opportunities come our way in the year ahead.”
