A Richmondshire-based company says it has had its best ever quarter after seeing revenue increase by 29  per cent.

razorblue, which is based on the Colburn Business Park , has created a new account management team, expanded and improved its service desk and continued to recruit new staff throughout the year as the business has grown and taken on new clients.

The firm expects to turn over in excess of £4.5m this year and hopes to create more jobs in the region.

In the last 12 months razorblue has increased its staff numbers to over 50 to assist with its growth plans.

New clients include BHP Law, Archers Law and Stiller Warehousing & Distribution.

The company specialises in managed IT services, cloud, connectivity, telecoms and business software.

In addition to the Catterick headquarters and the recently opened Wynyard office, razorblue also has an office in Leeds and a base in the City of London.

razorblue says it expects to sustain similar levels of growth in the coming year with the recent launch of a new managed IT security product for its clients. This comes hot on the heels of the launch of the Microsoft Dynamics family, as razorblue became one of the first companies in the region to offer Microsoft’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, Dynamics Nav.

Managing director Dan Kitchen said: “2017 has seen us continue to meet demand and enter new markets, meaning we have exceeded the growth targets we set ourselves and created a significant number of jobs.

“Increasingly clients are looking for a single, professional partner to manage all of their IT, cloud, connectivity, telecoms and business system requirements and we are in an ideal position to meet that need.

“We have a great team here and we are adding talented individuals all the time.

“Our growth reflects our commitment to exceptional service levels, our ability to create innovative business solutions and becoming an invaluable IT partner for our clients. We are looking forward to an even better 2018 as we remain true to our core principle of putting client needs first.”
