“We’ve been on a rollercoaster ride,” says Agilitas chief executive Shaun Lynn. “We used to be owned by a FTSE 100 plc, following that I led the management buyout to form Agilitas. We rebranded and set some ambitious targets and are now a fast-growing business looking to scale up.”
The Nottingham-based firm provides all kinds of IT services, from onsite and remote technical support to IT spare parts, for customers across 39 countries. Agilitas helps its customers outsource the IT they don’t have the expertise to run in-house. “We’re confident there’s a lot more growth in this space,” says Lynn. “With us, you can get what you want when you want it”.
The business offers its services under a white-label proposition – when its client IBM uses Agilitas, the end user thinks that it’s an IBM technician they are dealing with. Today, the business is 8.5 times the size it was when it became a single entity in 2013. “We’re continually increasing our services, recently adding field engineering, and enterprise networking,” says Lynn.
“We’re on track to break through £10m in revenue.” Agilitas is already an international player with a foothold in the US and a growing customer base across the Asia-Pacific region. Lynn adds: “It’s been an interesting journey. Within the next five years we could be a £50m turnover business.”
