Aberdeen-based technology business Dynamic Edge has become a £5 million turnover firm and extended its geographical reach after the acquisition of Hampshire-based IT business Tekkers IT Solutions.

The value of the deal has not been disclosed and all 16 staff at Tekkers are being retained. This is Dynamic Edge’s third IT acquisition following deals to purchase Inverness-based Alchemy Plus Business Solutions in 2015 and Surrey-based Waytime Technologies in 2017.

The latest deal takes Dynamic Edge’s headcount to 55 across six offices – Aberdeen, Inverness, Stirling, Dundee, Guildford and now Fareham, which is strategically placed to support company IT requirements in Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex. The Tekkers name will remain, with the company becoming part of the Dynamic Edge Group.

Dynamic Edge now has 520 clients from the Isle of Wight to Shetland. Husband and wife Pete and Erica Matheson, who established Tekkers in 2011, will remain with the firm as consultants while pursuing other business interests, with Craig Nixon stepping up to lead the office as regional manager.

Rob Hamilton, chief executive of Dynamic Edge, said Tekkers "ticked all the right boxes" for the firm.

He added: “Acquisitions form a key part of our growth strategy and we wouldn’t rule out further deals in the future. For the moment, however, our focus will be on integrating Tekkers into the wider group and taking the business to the next level by offering a broader scope of services and capability to the market.

“We’re looking forward to engaging with the business community in Hampshire and the surrounding area.”

Pete said Dynamic Edge has "the depth of resources to take it on the next level".

The deal was funded by the Scottish Investment Bank, the investment arm of Scottish Enterprise, and Funding Circle. Dynamic Edge was advised by The Legal Director, a London-based law firm.

Earlier this year Dynamic Edge strengthened its senior management team with the addition of Paul Adam as technical director, Jeremy Lai as financial director and Jason Smalley as legal director. In addition, Inverness-based Stephen Laurie was promoted to business development director. Those four join Rob and managing director Stuart Winterburn on the company’s board.
