EvolveODM expands capabilities with GB3 acquisition

Wigan-based managed network solutions provider EvolveODM is creating an IT services powerhouse in Lancashire with the acquisition of Preston-based IT support company GB3 from EG Group. Both companies have 45 employees.

The acquisition backed by Barclays Corporate Bank is part of EvolveODM’s broader strategy to grow its network management footprint amongst restaurants, convenience stores and fuel forecourts from more from 7,500 locations to 15,000 by 2025, creating 40 new jobs.

The move will give EvolveODM customers, including Robinsons Brewery, Hydes Brewery and franchises such as KFC, Starbucks, ESSO, BP and Leon, access to IT strategy, due diligence, cybersecurity, IT security audits and cloud computing solutions. GB3 customers will benefit from access to network management and EvolveODM’s 24/7 helpdesk.

Alan Stephenson-Brown, Director at Evolve Business Group, said: “We’ve been working closely with GB3 recently to fulfil mutual customer contracts, so we knew that acquiring GB3 would help us create a broader IT services business with a more expansive offering for our customers. The two companies provide truly complementary services and together create a centre of excellence for IT in Lancashire’s growing digital sector.”
