Data Techniques Managing Director Nick Crosby has predicted continued growth and innovation for one of the UK’s most successful IT and services infrastructure businesses after de-merging its rail and carrier division.
The company has this week announced the de-merger of its successful rail and carrier division into a new company called Data Tech, a move which will enable both businesses to focus on their specialist core areas and create continued growth.
The de-merger of the businesses took effect from November 30 2019 and will ensure each business is more focused and agile to continue to provide the innovation, customer service and excellence that it has become known for.
Nick Crosby said: “Data Techniques has a great reputation for delivering innovative high-quality network cabling, electrical services and mobility solutions across a range of markets including, Network Carrier, Data Centre, Defence, Finance, Technology and Central Government sectors.
“We are extremely proud of our business evolution which has enabled us to forge long standing business relationships with some of the world’s leading organisations. We look forward to continuing this journey by providing exceptional service to all of our clients.”
The new business – called Data Tech Holdings Ltd – will continue to develop its proven track record in delivering fixed price rail and carrier infrastructure projects for the likes of London Underground, Docklands Light Railway and Network Rail from its base at Woolwich in London. It will be led by Managing Director Bob Jacobs.
The original business was created in 1988 by current CEO Ian Crockford and he will be continuing in that role with Data Techniques.
He said: “Both divisions of the company have always operated autonomously with dedicated management and commercial teams to ensure that contracts and services are delivered to the highest standards to time and to budget.
“The board of Data Techniques has worked together for many years, creating two significant businesses of which we are all extremely proud.
“Both businesses are at their strongest point financially and are underpinned by a number of framework contracts. In order to maximise the potential of both business and to allow for continued growth in both, the board of directors of Data Techniques has taken the decision to de-merge both business divisions.
“For our large and varied customer base this will mean business as usual, delivered and managed by the same people. Contracts will continue to be delivered with the same dedication, attention to detail and innovation that is part of our DNA.
“These are exciting times and we would like to take the opportunity to thank our clients for their continued business, and our staff for their never ending diligence in ensuring the highest levels of customer satisfaction are achieved.”
