A Sheffield based firm has been named the fastest growing technology company in Yorkshire.
Leading Microsoft software provider, Azzure IT, has been named for the second consecutive year in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, fuelled by its rapid growth and success.
Azzure IT, which has offices in Sheffield, Newcastle and Reading, ranked 29th overall with a growth rate of 599% over the last four years, making it the second fastest growing tech company in the north, and the only business in Yorkshire to make this year’s list.
The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 is one of the UK’s leading technology award programmes, celebrating business growth and innovation. The award, now in its 19th year, is a ranking of the country’s 50 fastest growing technology companies, based on revenue growth over the last four years.
Craig Such managing director at Azzure IT said: “It’s a huge honour to be recognised as one of the country’s fastest growing tech companies.”
The listing comes following a wave of success for the firm, which placed 11th in last year’s Deloitte Technology Fast 50 and has also been awarded Microsoft President’s Club membership for the second year running. The club represents the top 5% of Microsoft providers worldwide.
Craig Such said: “To be listed for two years’ running is an outstanding achievement and a testament to the team’s hard work and customer centric approach.
“At Azzure IT, we have experienced impressive growth over the past few years, and this position in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 is great recognition of our focus on top quality customer service. By concentrating on delivering the very best service, high growth has occurred as a natural, but very welcome, by-product.
“We would like to thank all our valued customers who have enabled us to get where we are today.”
Deloitte technology partner for the North-East Matthew Hughes said: “Being one of the fastest growing technology companies in the UK is an impressive accomplishment. We commend Azzure IT for making the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 with a phenomenal 599% growth rate over 4 years. Azzure has proven that its leadership has the vision and determination to grow in competitive conditions.”
