Bowmark Capital backed Node4 has set off on the next phase of its growth journey having opened a new office and Security Operations Centre (SOC) in Nottingham.
The move follows three years of growth that saw staff numbers treble to 185.
Bowmark backed the business in a secondary buyout last year and LDC, Node4's original investment partner, has provided more funding to support the growth plan which has a mid-market focus.
A series of acquisitions together with organic growth and a broader managed service portfolio have helped to grow the customer base to over 900 organisations in 2017.
The Nottingham office will provide a base for up to 50 employees enabling Node4 to expand its geographic presence in the midlands and tap into a city that offers a strong base of potential customers and employees.
Node4's managed security service launched in 2016 and is targeted at the SME and mid-market sector.
CEO Andrew Gilbert commented: "Our end-to-end service offering has helped us win some high value managed services contracts in the last 12 months.
"We are attracting fast-growing companies who want to outsource their IT infrastructure to a strategic partner."
