Onyx cruises towards £20m revenue mark

Onyx Group reflects on a strong financial year, with turnover heading towards the £20m mark

Services provider Onyx Group has been reflecting on a strong financial year after booking growth of 13% and seeing its turnover head towards the £20m mark, driven by customer uptake of its cloud and hosted services offering.

The firm has seen steady expansion since its acquisition by private equity money in 2011, and recently relaunched its datacentre services partner programme, targeting VARs and white-labellers. It also hired channel name John Toal out of Avnet, and Cable and Wireless’ Paul Crinnion, last year.

In the past twelve months it has ploughed a six figure sum into its cloud platform, with assistance from vendor partner Hitachi Data Systems, and grown its datacentre estate with developments at its Edinburgh and Sheffield sites. New customer wins include furniture retailer DFS and automotive services specialist Kwik-Fit.

CEO Neil Stephenson noted: “Technology in 2013 was dominated by ‘Cloud computing’ and ‘Big Data’ and Onyx Group were prepared to embrace the opportunities they created to grow the company.

“We have been selling cloud and data solutions for over a decade and it is this longevity of delivering superior solutions that has created our credibility in the field.”
