Surf Tech IT acquires Citrus Computing following impressive organic growth.
Stourport-based IT company, Surf Tech, has added Citrus Computing to its family.
Enhancing its 25% organic growth year-on-year, the acquisition will further strengthen
Surf Tech’s presence in the region whilst providing a safe home for Citrus clients.
Breda Hadley established Bewdley-based Citrus Computing in 2011. It soon grew to become a trusted IT
provider in the area for small and mid-sized businesses. As an accredited Sage Business Partner, Citrus will add
complementary value to Surf Tech’s wide range of IT services.
Whilst all Citrus operations move to Surf Tech offices, the two brands will run side-by-side for the next 18
months. Citrus Computing service contracts remain in place and Breda has stayed on as a consultant during the
handover period. Jeremy Stables – familiar to all Citrus clients – also joins the Surf Tech team. He brings two
decades of IT experience, not to mention Sage accounting expertise.
Perfect cultural fit
The acquisition was an ideal match – the two IT companies share the same customer-first approach. Promising
“honest and personal” service they’ve both consistently delivered lightning-fast response and fit for purpose
Citrus clients will welcome Surf Tech’s proactive approach and larger support team. With ample in-house
technology, and automated monitoring as standard, the team often knows about a problem before the client.
Offering many services including IT, telephony, cybersecurity, cloud and on-premise solutions, Surf Tech has
become a one-stop technology shop for businesses in the West Midlands.
Comments Matthew Parsons, MD of Surf Tech IT: “We’re delighted to bring Citrus Computing into the Surf Tech
fold. It really did make sense, given our similar business characters and geographic synergy.
As we personally settle in every Citrus client, Jeremy will add huge value to our team. We look forward to
pooling ideas as we plan our future service development.
Breda has achieved so much in the last 11 years. I feel privileged to merge her vision with my own as we build
on Surf Tech’s robust growth and success.”
Comments Breda Hadley, MD of Citrus Computing: “I’m confident I’ve found a secure home for Citrus
Computing at Surf Tech. Matt’s approach to honest business matches my own ethos and I’m sure my clients will
be in safe hands for their future support. I look forward to helping the Surf Tech team as we hand over the reins as smoothly as possible.”
The acquisition completed in early December. Citrus personally informed all clients prior to the announcement,
reinforcing the customer focus these two IT businesses maintain.
