Logicalis UK&I has announced the acquisition of Q Associates, a UK-based IT consultancy and advisory services provider which focuses on data management, data protection, compliance and information security.

In an announcement, the managed service provider said the acquisition bolsters its core expertise in digital infrastructure, networking, and cloud, adding complementary capabilities that will provide end users with greater flexibility and freedom.

Q Associates specialises in providing tech solutions to UK Universities and Research Councils, Government Security Services and Home Office departments, as well as commercial clients across sectors such as finance, legal, transportation, and energy.

Logicalis CEO Alex Louth said the addition broadens the firm’s partnership portfolio across the UK and Ireland and further expands its technical expertise.

“This announcement shows our commitment to being at the top table in the UKI partner market and customer landscape, especially around the Higher Education and Government Secured Services sectors,” he said.

“In addition, extending the reach and skills of Logicalis UKI shows our hunger to grow and provide increased value to customers across all sectors.”

Q Associates holds advanced technical accreditations with many of the world’s leading tech vendors - including Microsoft, NetApp, Oracle, IBM, and Rubrik.

Headquartered in Newbury, Berkshire, the firm has regional outposts in London, Manchester, and Newcastle, as well as a Microsoft technical delivery team based in Zimbabwe.

Andrew Griffiths, Business Development Director at Q Associates, highlighted the company’s “strong values around technical excellence and customer satisfaction.”

“This acquisition is a natural fit for both organisations and will provide clear benefits to our customers through the extended capability and reach of Logicalis,” he said. “I am very excited by this next stage in our evolution.”

The financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
