A YEAR of success is being celebrated by a IT company.

Andrew Ingram, from Hartlepool and a director of High Tide, told how his company has won eight new clients in the past six months.

The firm, which specialises in IT solutions, works with some well-known international companies, including a multinational chemical firm and a car manufacturer, as well as providing IT and communications support for small and medium sized businesses across the North East.

Andrew brings over 15 years of IT industry expertise to the firm, working with companies such as Huntsman, ICI, Hyundai and Suzuki, and is supported by experienced business manager, Ruth Quinn. More recently, the firm has taken on Simon Clayton as a sales and marketing specialist to provide support services to clients as well as helping to develop the business.

Andrew said High Tide was “a dynamic and forward thinking technology business.”

He added: “This year will be very exciting for us, as we have lots of projects in the pipeline, working with Middlesbrough College and Hartlepool Marina on their digital services, as well as continuing our technical support with an international chemical client.

“We are passionate about delivering IT solutions that offer total flexibility, security, collaboration, and ultimately enhances business growth and transformation for our customers.”

The firm is now based at Lingfield Point in Darlington and Andrew said it “suited our business model of being creative, innovative and approachable.”

As well as enjoying exciting times itself, the company is also planning to pass on its expertise to other firms.

High Tide plans to introduce a series of free workshops to local businesses this year.

They will include demystifying technology such as the ‘Cloud’ and demonstrating more efficient ways of working.
