North East-headquartered software firm razorblue has acquired Stirling-based Sarn Technologies Ltd for an undisclosed sum.

The IT services firm, founded in 2007 by CEO Dan Kitchen, announced the acquisition follows a 32% increase in its turnover in 2020-21.

It offers businesses a wide range of services including managed IT support, connectivity, cloud solutions and business software, and has offices in Leeds, Manchester, and London.

Clients of Sarn Technologies will benefit from other products and services in razorblue’s portfolio including connectivity, cloud, and telecoms solutions.

Dan Kitchen (pictured, right), CEO of razorblue, said: “We’re excited to have expanded our business further into Scotland. Whilst our roots are in the North of England, our client base is located throughout the UK. It makes sense to acquire a business that is already doing what we do, but in a different location.

“I’m very confident that this addition to the group will enable us to not only continue to provide an excellent service to the existing clients of both razorblue and sarn Technologies, but many other businesses across Scotland.” 

Graeme Scott (pictured, left), MD of Sarn Technologies Ltd, added “This acquisition is set to be a perfect blend of technical synergies, fitting with our aspirations for the future of sarn Technologies. I can say with confidence that razorblue aligns with our values and they too lead with a customer-centric approach to business. There will now be a more extensive range of services available to our valued customers, as well as career progression opportunities for the technical team.”

The firm is in the process of securing a larger office in Scotland to assist with future growth in the region.
