The deal sees Sword bolster its capabilities around Microsoft’s workplace offerings, as it looks to expand the business through both organic growth and acquisitions over the coming years.
Dave Bruce, CEO of Sword IT Solutions, said: “This acquisition sees the coming together of two teams with a clear focus on helping businesses unlock their competitive advantage via deployment of Microsoft technologies to enable the modern digital workplace.
“We will build on their excellent relationship with Microsoft and bring our joint offering to both established Sword clients and to the diverse range of Minttulip customers.
“From a strategic standpoint, we aim to significantly increase the size of our business in the coming years and we’re sure this will prove to be a significant step on that journey. Our management team sees a real opportunity to bring our proven track record for delivering growth to a relatively young yet thriving, modern and exciting business.”
The acquisition adds to Sword’s existing bases in London, Edinburgh and Aberdeen, where it employees a total of around 200 staff.
