Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Flying in the face of a class action suit and other allegations back home, US owned Ikon Office Solutions has snapped up another UK reseller. Last year saw Ikon buy Manchester-based Redbox, with turnover estimated to be around £5 million. This time round, the object of Ikon’s attentions was Rockliff Computers, another north west of England company (headquartered in Runcorn). Rockliff’s turnover for 1997 was in the region of £45 million. According to a statement issued by Ikon, Rockliff is the largest privately owned IT specialist in northern England. “This is an exciting addition to our already broad service offering, giving us increased expertise in IT services, particularly computer network design and consultancy, and further signalling our investment in a total office solutions offering to our customers,” commented David Mills, President of Ikon Office Solutions UK. ®
