APSU announced today that it has opened a new office in the UK, located in the heart of Central London at 80 Coleman Street. The office will be responsible for overseeing expansion of the company’s business and client services across the UK, Europe and North America.This new location marks a key milestone for APSU, a leading provider of IT managed services and an IBM Premier Partner, and will further support its growth following a recent $11.2m investment by the Business Growth Fund (BGF).
The company is looking to treble the size of the business in the next three years, and will be opening further offices in the UK and North America.
APSU has a specialism in IBM’s Power i range of servers (formerly known as the iSeries and AS/400). Power i (IBM Power Systems running IBM i) is the world’s best-selling mid-range computer system. APSU is IBM’s highest accredited Business Partner in Europe, the only UK member of IBM’s Global Business Partner Advisory Council and the only OEM provider for Power i managed services to IBM worldwide. APSU also provides solutions through Cisco, Microsoft, HP and VMware.
Announcing the opening of the new office, Group Sales Director Simon Parkins said “This is a fantastic extension to our business and will augment our presence in the market place both in the UK and beyond as we grow our market share and associated business lines, while offering a prime location for convenient business.”
“We are now right at the centre of one of, if not the, most important business cities in the global economy, with our partners like IBM, HP and Cisco literally minutes away from our doorstep, along with many of our existing clients, prospects and partners.”
In October, APSU secured a £7m ($11.2m) investment from BGF (Business Growth Fund), the independent company established to help Britain’s growing businesses. Since then, APSU has continued to make significant progress in the expansion of technical, sales and operational capability to address its existing and overseas customer demand.
