KBS Corporate Advise on Sale of Taupo Consulting Ltd
Taupo Consulting, specialists in all areas of IT infrastructure virtualisation was acquired by Purely Computing Limited for an undisclosed sum in February 2014, advised by KBS Corporate.
A leading provider of information systems managed services, Purely Computing was founded in 1994 in South Cambridgeshire and serves an international client base of small to medium sized businesses and have built a strong reputation for professional led managed services.
Glasgow based Taupo was founded as a small VMware training company and has gradually developed into VMware consultancy, achieving VMware Enterprise status in 2007 and awarded VMware End User Computing Partner of the Year in 2011.
The company will continue to operate from their Glasgow office along with founder Alistair Sutherland who has decided to retain his position within the company. However, shareholder Tom Mill will be departing after being involved with the business for many years. The acquisition has provided a platform for Purely Computing to extend their product offering in the growing cloud and virtualisation market.
