Techbuyer, a sustainable IT solutions provider based on Hornbeam Park in Harrogate, has been listed in Buzzacott’s Organic Growth 25 (OG25). They are one of four Yorkshire companies to feature this year.
The list recognises the UK’s top 25 businesses in terms of fast and sustainable growth. It also demonstrates that it is possible to grow a business without investment or venture capital funding.
Techbuyer buys, refurbishes and sells servers, storage and networking equipment, laptops and desktops from over 150 brands. The company’s priority is to provide excellent performance and unrivalled customer service. They also extend the life cycle of IT equipment to maximise budgets and keep quality technology in use.
2020 has been a busy year for Techbuyer. Labelled as an essential business during the Covid-19 pandemic, the company has been keeping IT systems running across the world. 41 new employees have joined, totalling an increase of 26% since January 2020, and new customers have doubled from August 2019 to August 2020.
To help ease costs during a difficult climate, Techbuyer has also launched new services. This includes IT Rentals which avoid upfront payments, an online tool which configures HPE servers in minutes, and a Laptop Upgrade Service.
Helen Blakey, Techbuyer Marketing Director said:
“Reaching the Organic Growth 25 list is a great honour for us here in the UK.”
“Our success is thanks to our employees who always go above and beyond. We have a strong history of promoting from within, with many of our earliest colleagues growing alongside the business. We also invest heavily in staff training and development, including the Techbuyer Academy which trains people in the ever-changing IT market.”
“Being recognised for organic growth is also testament to the circular economy,” Helen continues. “Our business model is entirely circular, which reduces waste, makes use of the materials we already have, and maximises IT budgets. This approach can also contribute to our clients’ CSR goals.”
Based in Harrogate since 2005, Yorkshire remains Techbuyer’s largest HQ. The company has expanded in recent years with six more sites across Europe, the US and Asia Pacific. Techbuyer won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade in April 2020 and has over 15 years of experience in the IT industry.
