Pixel Group expands reach with IT acquisition


Pixel Group has made a further acquisition as it seeks to “expand its UK reach.”

It has acquired Berkshire-based Technique via its Newcastle-based subsidiary, Perfect Image.

Technique is an IT Managed Services Provider (MSP) and will become part of a new group strategy for a nationwide provision of IT services and data analytics.

“The acquisition of Technique is a clear statement of intent and a strong indicator of our ambition to create one of the leading IT Managed Services and Data Analytics Providers in the UK. The entrepreneurial flair and talent we have inherited through the acquisition is impressive and I can’t wait to start working with them as we look to grow and scale to the next level,” stated Group Chairman Tom Kelly.

“This move significantly bolsters our geographic presence across the UK, further accelerating our expansion plans and driving new market opportunities. We are fully committed to our growth strategy with future acquisitions and brand investment in the pipeline. Watch this space.”

The acquisition follows that of Cyphra in 2021 and means the company adds a presence in the South of England (Thatcham) alongside its offices in Newcastle, Glasgow and Belfast.

Greg Baker, the newly appointed General Manager of Technique will work alongside its founders, who’ll remain in their roles.

“We see significant opportunities ahead for organic growth as we take advantage of the cross-selling and up-selling opportunities within each customer base. I see exciting times ahead and I look forward to working with the Technique team moving forward,” added Kelly Simkiss, Group CEO.
