CCS Media planning expansion

willy-wonka-violet-blow-upCCS Media is planning to add another five academies across the UK by 2022, on top of its existing two, which would raise headcount from 400 to 1,000.

The Chesterfield-based firm is investing in two services and solutions centres in the north and south of the UK. These will provide managed services, as well as advanced technology services for devices and infrastructure.

CCS Media’s deputy managing director James Hardy said that instead of building legacy managed and professional services business the rest of the industry it can work from the ground up.

It has £5 million services business already with 5,000 transactional customers every month and only 10 percent buying services. This allows the company to build some robust value with customers.

Ultimately the plan is to get a quarter of the customer base which is happening relatively quickly.

This will help ensure CCS Media has the management bandwidth to continue growing its transactional reseller business as it pushes into services, he said.
