Grimsby IT firm expands to accommodate growth

IT automation specialist PowerON, based in Grimsby, has expanded into new offices in York to accommodate its growth in business over the last three years.

The firm’s turnover has grown from £128,000 in 2015 and is on target to hit £2 million during this financial year following notable contract wins in both the public and private sectors.

As a result PowerON, which has offices on Innovation Way, Europarc in Lincolnshire and Surrey, has now expanded into new offices in York to accommodate its growth and service its regional and national accounts.

PowerON, which provides IT management and cloud automation solutions to organisations of all sizes, has signed a three year lease at the 1,290 sq.ft ground floor office at the recently refurbished Stanley Harrison House in York.

Phil Mercer, solutions and services director at PowerON, said: “Steve Beaumont and I spent a year researching and developing the plan for our business before launching with just two staff in 2015.

“With teams in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Surrey, our recent expansion into new offices in York is in response to a string of new appointments to service several more recent contract wins with British Land, GHD and Clifford Chance.

“We are also investing heavily in research and development and have an exciting new product set to launch this week at the Microsoft Inspire event in Washington DC.”

Steve Beaumont, product development director at PowerON, added: “It’s been a successful and fast paced three years since our launch, and we plan to continue our growth and development as we carry on removing the complexity and high costs often associated with the management and implementation of IT Solutions.”
