IT Lab announces acquisition of Sol-Tec

IT Lab, the technology service and solutions provider business behind McLaren F1 sports cars, has today announced the acquisition of Sol-Tec Limited, one of Microsoft’s largest Azure partners in the UK.

The details of the transaction have not been disclosed.

Sol-Tec Limited, one of the UK’s leading Azure professional services providers, enabled the transition of public sector giants including the Department of Work and Pensions; HMRC; and Department for Education and other leading public and private sector organisations to confidently and cost effectively take advantage of Azure services.

Supporting a top three UK supermarket chain and a top five online financial services business to leverage the power of Microsoft Azure, Sol-Tec paves the way to Azure adoption using a combination of its deep Azure expertise and Velocity Landing Zone.

Following its recent acquisitions of SMB specialist, Mirus in 2019 and leading Microsoft Office365 and SharePoint partner, Content and Code in September 2018, the turnover for the combined IT Lab group is now around £85m, with strong organic growth continuing.

“Nik Topham, CEO and founder of Sol-Tec, commented: “IT Lab was the natural home for Sol-Tec, with its dedicated focus on Microsoft and the deep expertise already established across Modern Workplace and Dynamics 365, Sol-Tec’s exceptional Azure capability complements and strengthens the ability of IT Lab to help our combined clients truly leverage the power of the Microsoft Cloud.

“In addition to this being a great capability fit from our client’s perspective, our cultures, ethos and ambitions align perfectly.”

Peter Sweetbaum, CEO of IT Lab stated “Sol-Tec is a true Azure expert, with market leading expertise in the design, deployment and configuration of secure and compliant Azure environments.

“We are incredibly excited to add Sol-Tec’s award-winning Azure expertise to our market leading Modern Workplace and Dynamic 365 practices, further solidifying IT Lab as one of the UK’s leading Microsoft focused cloud services and solutions providers.”
