This move will strengthen our presence in Scotland and position us in a thriving market. The Cloud Cover team will become an integral part of the Aspire group, and together, we believe we can grow significantly in this key strategic market.”

Lance Gauld, Founder and MD at Cloud Cover IT, highlighted the synergy between the two companies: “Multiple factors drew us to Aspire; they are an outstanding company. The alignment between our organizations and how we complement each other is evident. This partnership is not merely a merger with a large IT company; it is a collaboration with a leading UK technology provider that understands us. As part of the Aspire group, we can grow our footprint further and broaden our offerings with access to more expertise, resources, and an extensive portfolio of solutions to help our customers drive their businesses forward.”
