Inflexion has completed a minority investment in Systal Technology Solutions (Systal), a managed network services provider.
The investment is being made by Inflexion Enterprise Fund V, Inflexion’s dedicated lower mid-market fund.
Systal was founded in 2008 and is based in Glasgow, with a presence in the US and Asia. Owner-managed since inception, Systal offers a high-quality, mission-critical managed network service from its 24/7 network operations centre, to service clients’ IT networks globally. The firm counts Coca-Cola European Partners, WPP and Jones Lang LaSalle among its clients.
Neil Nicolson, CEO of Systal, says: “Inflexion’s presence in our key markets of Asia and the US combined with their deep technology understanding make them the ideal partner for Systal as we look to grow our business at home and internationally. We look forward to working together with Inflexion to accelerate our growth.”
Simon Turner, Managing Partner of Inflexion, says: “There is great opportunity for managed network providers as IT networking migrates to the cloud, leading to a large and growing market for their services. Systal is already well placed to take advantage of this, and we look forward to working with management to further enhance their offering in the UK and overseas.”
