According to Cannon Technologies' managing director Matthew Goulding, ever since the business was established back in 1978, its emphasis has been on supporting clients' technology needs by offering them `best of breed' IT solutions.
“In recent years, our brief has evolved into the business of instantly shipping fully operational data centres – and relocating them at short notice with no system damage or separate handling of IT systems," he said.
"Coupled with our unique approach of working with local partners, and ensuring that clients receive local country staff support - backed up with our 24x7 global resources - our clients have come to understand that we are now their key data centre supplier, with available systems ranging from mini-data centres all the way through more complex ISO containerised data centres and allied systems," he added.
Goulding went on to say that merely being in the running to receive an Award for International Growth from BDO - now the fifth largest business accountancy network in the world - is an accolade in itself.
And, he says, to actually secure an Award from the company is true recognition for the hard work that Cannon Technologies' staff have put in to pushing the company to the pinnacle of the data networking, telecommunications, electronics and IT industries arena.
About BDO and its Award
With a wide depth of experience reaching beyond its core audit and tax services, with more than 3,500 staff across the UK, BDO today offers a range of advisory practices including management consulting, corporate finance and business analyses.
For the last five years BDO in Southampton has produced the Central South Report which has focussed on the top 150 companies in the region. This year they are taking a different perspective and concentrating on mid-market companies who are seen as the region’s best chance for sustainable and dynamic growth. Over the coming months they will be exploring the region’s best performers in certain key areas, the first of these being international growth.
According to Arbinder Chatwal, Director of BDO in Southampton, the firm's analysis of the mid‐market business ‐ defined as businesses generating between £10m and £300m in annual turnover ‐ has shown that Cannon Technologies is one of the Central South’s success stories in terms of growth in overseas turnover over the last three years. "Cannon Technologies has carved out a very successful niche as one of the key international suppliers in the data centre industry, giving clients access to local support backed up with a truly global presence,” he said.
“Its growth in international turnover is to be applauded, as is its inherent understanding of the IT needs of its clients," Chatwal concluded.
Back at Cannon Technologies, MD Matt Goulding said the company could not have received this Award, without the tireless work of the company’s employees, both in the UK and around the world.
“I would like to thank BDO on behalf of the staff at our New Milton, Hampshire headquarters here in the UK – together with our regional offices in the Middle East (Dubai), Africa (Johannesburg)
