GB Technologies receives investment from Focus Group

IT and communications supplier GB Technologies has welcomed significant investment from Focus Group – one of the fastest growing providers of essential business technology in the UK. The financial investment will serve to extend geographical reach, strengthen product portfolios and enhance service expertise for both brands.

Founded in Galashiels in 1987, GB Technologies is a long-standing, well-respected Scottish business with a strong management team including founder Gordon Brown and directors June Wilson and Mark Moncrieff. They will continue to lead GB Technologies’ 27 employees under its existing brand name. The partnership is a natural fit, with Focus Group and GB Technologies already providing a similar portfolio of technological solutions and services to businesses across the UK.

Chairman Gordon Brown said:“GB Technologies is a growing, evolving, ambitious business. With Focus Group’s complementary products, support services, and UK-wide engineering network we will be able to fulfil our goals. This is very exciting time for all our staff and our customers. We look forward to working closely with Focus’ directors and staff and extend our influence in Scotland and beyond.”

Ralph Gilbert, Co-Founder and Director of Focus Group, added: “GB Technologies were a very attractive proposition for us to work with. As a growing and dynamic business, they fit perfectly with the Focus Group culture. Geographically, they will also enable us grow our footprint in Scotland.”

Earlier this year, Focus Group acquired HighNet, which has offices in Glasgow and Inverness. This business acquisition followed in the wake of the merger with Resource Telecom Group, based in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
