Castle Donington – July 2015. Solutions provider ICC recently opened a second sales office, located in Castle Donington. This expansion comes less than a year after the company moved to a prestigious new office, warehouse and workshop facility in Wetherby, West Yorkshire. Since that initial move, ICC has increased their staff count by almost half.
ICC’s first office serves as their base of operations for their refurbished hardware/spares, servers and support team, as well as for their new Nimble, VMWare and Lenovo partnerships. The Donington office houses the company’s HP OEM team, as well as their newly formed public sector team which serves the NHS and Education sectors. The company also plans to use the Castle Donington office to provide their southern and Midlands-based customers with a more personal service.
About the HP team:
ICC’s new HP OEM team is the Tier 1 parts supplier to HP for the EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) region for PPS (personal and printer systems) and HP Enterprise (ProLiant/AlphaServer/Integrity servers & HP storage). As the lead in the supply chain for spares and refurbished hardware, ICC provides HP with parts that the manufacturer can use to service their support contracts and hardware. ICC takes pride in being trusted with such a contract from one of the world’s largest OEMs. All other ‘end-user’ HP sales and solutions are provided by the team at ICC HQ.
About the public sector team:
ICC’s public sector team supplies a range of equipment from iPads, e-boards and touchscreens through to VDI and other network-based solutions as well as VMware virtualization services, IaaS and SaaS solutions, and other cloud-based offerings for educational institutions and the NHS. The team helps public sector institutions to streamline their technology offerings and processes, reducing management overheads in the process. ICC has been working with the public sector for some time now, and made the decision to form a dedicated team in order to improve the quality of their service for the sector.
Leon Wheeler, MD said “Moving the team to a new, dedicated office was the next logical step in our expansion, and will allow us to focus on providing high quality, personal service to our public sector clients. With its airport and easy motorway network access, the Castle Donington location is ideal as a base of operations for serving both HP and the public sector, and is a prime location for future market expansion.”
