A North West technology group that specialises in advanced digital training, technology recruitment and cloud and IoT (internet of things) consultancy has experienced significant growth over the past year.
IN4.0 Group has grown at 50% year-on-year, with over 80% growth during the COVID lock down compared to the same period last year. This was achieved through major contract wins and increased demand from businesses requiring support in cloud and digital adoption as a direct result of COVID-19.
With offices at The Landing at MediaCityUK and the University of Central Lancashire in Preston, IN4.0 has seen double-digit growth across all its businesses and is actively expanding its operations organically and through acquisitions. Later this year, the Group also intends to launch a dedicated pan-northern investment seed fund, supporting the acceleration of diverse home-grown technology start-ups and scale-ups.
Mo Isap, the founder and CEO of IN4.0 Group and the Co-Chair of the Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “We are seeing a growing trend for businesses who are actively looking to adopt digital technology into their existing systems or develop new ones. We are supporting as many companies as we can with introducing these digital processes so they can quickly recover and future proof their businesses. Whether they need help with up-skilling teams or recruiting the best digital talent in the North West, we can help with identifying skills gaps and providing a solution.
“We have ambitious plans for further growth across all our services, up-skilling, project implementation and training in new technologies, particularly in cloud and data, is now more needed than ever. We want to keep building new partner relationships and continue to nurture the brightest talent, so it is kept within the region to support the local economy.”
Having recently been awarded the status of approved training provider to SC21 (Supply Chains for the 21st Century), the government’s investment into future proofing the UK’s Aerospace and Automotive supply chains, the business has expanded its services.
It launched the IN4.0 talent academy in July, a 12-week specialist digital skills training programme, which is supported by the Fast Track Fund, in partnership with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport and the Lancashire Digital Skills Partnership.
IN4.0 has also formed a ground-breaking joint venture business with the University of Central Lancashire that focuses on using disruptive technology to streamline manufacturing processes in order to increase revenue and efficiency.
IN4.0 CEO Mo, has founded several companies and scaled his first business MPG to become one of the largest independent digital print companies. Headquartered in Manchester, the business was listed in the Financial Times 100 fastest growing UK companies. Having been acquired by Hobs Plc with Mo as Group Director, Hobs established itself as the UK’s leading provider of 3D printing, 3D laser scanning and mixed reality.
