Managed services provider ANS says it has doubled its six-month sales off the back of growing take up of its Cisco UCS, NetApp and VMware-focused Infrastructure 3.0 datacentre proposition in both the public and private sectors.
The Manchester-based firm revealed that half year sales had grown close to 100% year-on-year to £17.9m, with net operating profit up 62% over the same period to £1.1m. Gross profit rose from £2.3m this time last year to £4.3m.
Alongside the explosive growth in revenues came a similar sized leap in operating costs, which managing director Paul Sweeney put down to a recent recruiment drive.
"We have always operated with a high-level of expertise across our technical staff and our recruitment policy over the past 12 months has not deviated from that principle," he said.
"We are selling large, complex, multi-technology infrastructures and have seen many alrge deals come in over the past 12 months, including three recent contracts that will be worth almost £10m over the next five years," he added.
Added founder and chairman Scott Fletcher: "We are growing quickly in order to maintain this level of performance and in these times of austerity, it makes us very proud to be a success story with all of the benefits to the wider economy that this brings."
