Blue Logic was acquired by BCN in May, following a transitional period it will now formally become the BCN Group.
The enlarged BCN Group will continue to deliver award-winning IT services to the North with the merger helping to improve the products and services offered to clients. This includes cutting-edge technologies, cloud solutions and IT security and a brand-new website www.bcn.co.uk.
Blue Logic, first established in 2007, has had an impressive track record across a wide range of sectors and has carved out a reputation for being a technological powerhouse and leader in the North. Now with the ownership of BCN group it will continue to enhance services, products and solutions to the Region.
The BCN Group will now service more than 1100 clients across the North from its headquarters in Manchester and offices in Leeds, Burnley.
The BCN Group expects to grow its turnover to £24m this year and will to drive this to £50m within the next 3 years. Expansion will be achieved through an ongoing hunt for effective business acquisitions as well as expanding the team with key hires and continued development of internal talent.
