A TECH company in Hampshire has been sold for an undisclosed sum.

The deal makes Tekkers IT Solutions part of a £5million turnover firm with six offices in the south of England and in Scotland.

All 16 staff at Fareham-based Tekkers are being kept on after the takeover by Aberdeen-based technology business Dynamic Edge.

The Tekkers name will remain as 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 while pursuing other business interests, with Craig Nixon stepping up to lead the office as regional manager.

Mr Matheson 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.”

The deal is the Dynamic Edge’s third IT acquisition, following deals to buy Inverness-based Alchemy Plus Business Solutions in 2015 and Surrey-based Waytime Technologies in 2017.

The latest acquisition takes Dynamic Edge’s headcount to 55 across offices in Aberdeen, Inverness, Stirling, Dundee, Guildford and Fareham.

Dymamic Edge says the new business can support company IT requirements in Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex. The business now has 520 clients from the Isle of Wight to Shetland.

Rob Hamilton, the Surrey-based chief executive of 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.”

The deal was funded by Scottish Investment Bank, the investment arm of Scottish Enterprise, and Funding Circle. Dynamic Edge was advised by The Legal Director, a London-based law firm.

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