Intercity has been helping businesses take advantage of technology since 1985. It maintains operations across the UK and the Netherlands.
Imerja was founded in 2004 and has amassed plenty of experience working for the public sector, actively supplying digital services to the UK government under the G-Cloud framework. The company owns and manages two Tier III data centers, as well as a Network Operations Center.
Under the terms of the deal, all of the current Imerja staff will be retained by Intercity.
“Imerja brings a deep expertise in IT managed services and security, which allows us to offer our customers complete technology solutions across IT and telecoms,” said Andrew Jackson, CEO of Intercity.
“There is a strong cultural fit between our businesses and like us they focus on service excellence and technical knowledge to differentiate in the market.”
It seems that Intercity has chosen to grow through acquisitions: less than a year ago, it bought cloud, network and hosting specialist Gage Networks for an undisclosed sum. In a similar manner, all of Gage Networks staff got to keep their jobs under new management.
