Academia Technology Group (ATG) is aiming to build on a successful 2022 and power growth in 2023 by targeting the private sector and adding new services through acquisitions.
The IT solutions and services business for the education, creative, public and private sectors enjoyed 34% year-on-year revenue growth to £114m in 2022 and a 29% increase in its headcount from 140 to 180 to support the delivery of its service portfolio from a new HQ in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.
The company’s 2023 growth strategy is based on four pillars: the establishment of new vendor partnerships; an expansion of its customer base in the private sector, NHS and wider public sector; the addition of new services, especially in the areas of managed cyber security and IT asset disposal; and geographic expansion through the creation of regional hubs to support its managed service business for schools and wider availability of its fast growing IT asset recycling business.
ATG will continue to invest in partnerships with sports clubs through which qualifying schools can claim free Acer devices and IT support services from ATG.
Mark McCormack, Chief Commercial Officer at ATG, said: “We know from our sustained growth in the education sector that where we provide the right combination of services we’re seen as the long-term partner of choice for our clients. By growing the number of vendors we work with and diversifying our services to meet the evolving needs of our clients, we’ll be in a strong position to deliver on our ambitious growth plans in our current sectors of strength and in new ones such as cyber security services, sustainability and cloud storage solutions.”
