Converge TS welcomes Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region to open new control centre
Converge TS announces a multimillion-pound investment to upgrade its data centres and transform its office space into a state-of-the-art control centre to accommodate its rapidly expanding legal client base and technology team. The investment will help the business to attract the best new talent to its technical operations and service delivery divisions and provide excellent service to its customers. Over the last four years, cloud IT provider Converge TS has achieved annual growth of over 50% with a focus on the legal sector and secured a number of Top 200 law firm clients.
The Converge TS team were delighted to welcome Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, Steve Rotheram, to officially open the new facility, recognising the contribution the local authority has made in supporting the early growth of the business. Back in 2014, Converge TS was the first company in the Halton Borough Council area to be awarded monies from the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership’s (LEP) Business Growth Grant which is supported by the Government’s Regional Growth Fund. A combined grant and funding package of £0.6m helped the business acquire it current premises in Daresbury Park, Cheshire and part fund its first cloud infrastructure.
David Byrne, CFO at Converge TS said, “It’s a pleasure to welcome the Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region to open our new office. Our continued success means that we expect our technical and service teams to grow by 30% over the coming months to service our expanding base of law firm clients. This new collaborative working space will enable Converge TS to provide best in class support to our clients as we help them to strategically plan, implement and manage their IT infrastructure.”
Steve Rotheram, Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region said, “Converge TS is a great example of a business that has benefitted from a Liverpool City Region LEP grant in its early years and is now at the forefront of deploying cloud IT to its customers, creating exactly the sorts of highly skilled jobs that will help take us forward as a region.”
