A TECHNOLOGY firm established in Aberdeen is celebrating success after reaching a £5 million turnover, as well as extending its geographical reach following the acquisition of an IT company in the south of England.

Dynamic Edge, which was started in 2009, is taking over Hampshire-based Tekkers IT Solutions and retaining its 16 members of staff.

Dynamic Edge offers IT solutions, cloud solutions, IT strategy, cyber security and monitoring, training, hosted voice, data and back-up, virtual solutions, software development, business applications and web development.

The deal takes its headcount to 55 across six offices – Aberdeen, Inverness, Stirling, Dundee, Guildford, and Fareham. The Tekkers name will remain, with the company becoming part of the Dynamic Edge Group.

Husband and wife Pete and Erica Matheson, who established Tekkers in 2011, will remain with the firm as consultants, with Craig Nixon stepping up to lead the office as regional manager.

This is Dynamic Edge’s third IT acquisition following its purchase of Inverness-based Alchemy Plus Business Solutions in 2015, and award-winning Surrey-based Waytime Technologies in 2017.

Rob Hamilton, CEO at Dynamic Edge, said: “We’re thrilled to have made our third acquisition with the addition of a highly-rated business. The culture within the business, its talented team, its client base and the location of its office meant Tekkers ticked all the right boxes for Dynamic Edge.

“Acquisitions form a key part of our growth strategy and we wouldn’t rule out further deals in the future.

“For the moment, however, our focus will be on integrating Tekkers into the wider group and taking the business to the next level by offering a broader scope of services and capability to the market. We’re looking forward to engaging with the business community in Hampshire and the surrounding area.”

Pete said: “We’re delighted a company such as Dynamic Edge has acquired the business. They have the depth of resources to take it on the next level.

“We have been particular about which company we sold the business to as we have strong relationships with our staff and clients. We’re delighted to have reached an agreement with a progressive and passionate company.”
