Warwickshire IT firm leaves footprint in The Americas

Posted on 21 Aug 2012

Stratford-upon-Avon based Technology Associates has secured £176,000 worth of business following a successful UKTI funded visit to Canada.

The company secured the new contracts after attending the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto, and will see them provide software, support and training to a number of large, international companies with operations in the US and Canada.

Mr Kirby commented: “This is the 10th time we have attended the Worldwide Microsoft Conference and each time I’ve secured new contract wins on the back of the contacts I’ve made with companies. But this is the third time we have done it with support from UKTI and the difference that makes is significant.”

“It was a real privilege to be part of the conference and I’d like to thank the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber and in particular Bineet Desai for the support given to me to enable the trip to become a reality,” he added.

Bineet Desai, International Trade Adviser for UKTI, based at Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber said: “It’s hugely important that businesses make the most of the opportunities available to them for trading overseas, particular in areas such as IT solutions and software where location is largely irrelevant.”

“We’ll be looking to build on the success of the Toronto market visit organising further opportunities for companies to get involved in overseas trade in the near future.”
