Novosco provides cloud computing and IT infrastructure services, including disaster recovery, managed services and connectivity services, to a wide range of organisations in the public and private sectors.
The company is providing IT infrastructure for a new £237m building at Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool, due to be complete in 2015, as well as being awarded a contract with Bradford College to build the new infrastructure for their new £50m headquarters building.
Novosco managing director, Patrick McAliskey (pictured above with fellow director John Lennon), said that GB-based work has grown to around 25 per cent of the company's business.
"Northern Ireland remains our key market, but the significant opportunities for us to grow are in GB, as well as the Republic of Ireland. We opened a new office in Birmingham in 2012 and this has been a real springboard for increasing our business in England," he said.
"As we win more work there, it brings significant benefits to our Belfast headquarters and to our company as a whole," he adds.
Novosco grew its turnover from £15m in 2012 to over £23m in 2013. It now employs 90 people, with offices in Dublin and Birmingham, in addition to its Belfast base.
Already this year, the company has added further significant contracts in Great Britain, including a multi-year deal with a large housing association in the north of England.
