We are delighted to announce that we have succesfully completed the acquisition of the Leeds and York based IT support provider Octari Ltd.
The aquisition will see us add six new members of staff to the team and further enhance our technical expertise and range of services, especially around the Microsoft Azure platform.
Octari Ltd, which is based at Tower Works in Granary Wharf, Leeds, has been bought for an undisclosed sum from the firm’s founder, Marcus Robinson, who founded the company in 2004.
Both Vital and Octari offer a complementary range of IT solutions, such as support, business continuity, Microsoft infrastructure and cloud services, to small and medium-sized businesses across Yorkshire and the UK.
Octari is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner whose staff hold a range of Microsoft certifications and is well respected within the IT industry as a provider of innovative solutions based on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.
Vital Technology Group was established in 2006 and is a multi-disciplinary technology service provider providing a range of managed, cloud and IT solutions.
Lee Evans, Managing Directory at Vital said
“We are delighted to welcome the Octari team into the Vital family. The acquisition of Octari is a great way to end 2015 which was already a year of positive growth for us. Octari has a similar ethos to Vital, working closely with its customers and earning itself a well-respected reputation. Both have a strong client base, our services complement each other and this reinforces our position as a one of the region’s leading IT service providers.”
Vital is one of Microsoft’s top UK cloud partners holding Small & MidMarket Cloud Solutions (SMCS) competency, while its training program has seen it twice win the Small Business Apprentice of the Year Award for the Yorkshire and the Humber Region, as well as being named one of the UK’s top 10 Apprentice Employers.
