Manchester-based managed services provider, Everything Tech, has been acquired by Managed IT Services Group (MITSG). The acquisition will see Everything Tech become the flagship brand in the Group, with Manchester becoming its national headquarters and will bring the Group’s total headcount to 100.

Founded by Mark Allen and Phil Smith, MITSG is a UK-based managed services provider established to offer SMEs a full range of managed services around four distinct specialist units – Cloud & Remote Desktop services, Networks & Security, Voice & Contact Centre, and IT Support.

Chief Financial Officer, Mark Allen, commented: “Our vision has always been to provide SMEs with access to real experts across every aspect of the managed IT provision, with customers and staff central to our business.

“The acquisition of Everything Tech provides another part of the jigsaw that will enable us to bring our vision to reality. The brand that Ruth, Lee and Anthony have created is sector-leading and a genuine fit for our portfolio. After experiencing incredible year-on-year growth, we feel truly privileged to have the opportunity to take Everything Tech forward into a new and exciting chapter.”

This is the latest acquisition for MITSG, taking the total to four since May 2021.

Managing Director of Everything Tech, Ruth Hall, said: “Over recent years, we have been approached several times to sell the business, however, those buyers were never aligned with our core ethos and culture, where our customers and our people come first. MITSG very much share our beliefs and values and believe in the brand we’ve worked hard to build over the past 12 years.

“We see this acquisition as the start of a very exciting period of growth for Everything Tech, as well as an opportunity for our existing customers to benefit from a comprehensive offering.”

MITSG is headed by former GCI CFO Mark Allen, and COO Phil Smith. The Group is backed by Boost & Co for acquisition funding and was underpinned by director’s loans, and is on an aggressive expansion strategy.
