Argon is a customer focused multi-discipline technology Services Provider supporting the needs of organisations operating in both the Private and Public sectors. The business has been delivering comprehensive technology solutions to its customers for almost 40 years. Combined with its Microsoft-certified staff and experience delivering services within both the print and IT environment, this further supports Apogee’s venture into Managed IT Services.
Aurelio Maruggi, CEO of Apogee said, “This acquisition for Apogee helps strengthen our position as a leader in Managed Workplace Services, both in the UK and, as we continue to drive growth, in Continental Europe. Argon’s reputation will enhance Apogee’s coverage and capabilities to support its customers with Managed IT Services. This acquisition forms part of our ongoing growth strategy as we aim to create the perfect combination of secure and flexible solutions for our customers’ workforce. Apogee’s portfolio of services has been created to deliver the right technology and solutions to any workforce and this acquisition further enhances our IT capabilities as we continue to provide a bespoke and market-leading service to our customers.”
Argon’s CEO, Iain Fairbairn, commented on the acquisition, “This deal will enable the ongoing growth and development of the Argon team on the Island, expanding our range of Managed IT Services into the Apogee customer base across the UK and Ireland. It enhances the strength of the business for the future and is recognition of the excellent service provided by the Argon team. Working with Apogee, it will enable Argon to extend the solutions delivered and the value we can offer to our wide ranging customer base. I believe Apogee’s investment recognised the strength of our economy, the many sectors represented and the opportunities which exist on the Island.”
Apogee Corporation has a long history of demonstrating exponential growth both organically and through acquisition, having completed 20-plus acquisitions to date. This is Apogee’s third acquisition since announcing their change of ownership to HP in 2018, and Apogee will continue to consider further strategic acquisitions to drive its growth in the UK and Continental Europe. Apogee has been on an important journey since the HP acquisition with the development of a broad Services portfolio, the expanded presence in Europe and a notable change in culture throughout the business.
Businesses continuously seek ways to work smarter and work safer in a more sustainable world, through the technology and processes their employees use. As the needs of the workforce evolve, Apogee will continue to invest in their portfolio of services, ensuring they continue to provide world class Managed Workplace Services.
