The co-founder of Sage, Graham Wylie, is continuing his shopping spree for UK resellers who target small and medium-sized businesses. Wylie, and his Technology Services Group (TSG), bought Geordie Sage reseller Joynson in October 2003 and in June 2004 he bought Edinburgh-based Nordic Data. In total, the firm has made six acquisitions.

TSG has added another reseller to the group, it has bought Glasgow-based Clydeforth Digital Solutions for an undisclosed amount.

Graham Wylie said: "We have acquired Clydeforth Digital Solutions because of its large and loyal Sage customer base and the valuable technical expertise that it brings to TSG Glasgow."

Tom O'Hara, TSG Glasgow managing director, said: "TSG now looks after the IT needs of nearly 7,000 businesses in the UK, and over 2,000 of these are supported by our offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen."

Wylie has appointed David Stonehouse as chief executive to run TSG. Stonehouse, a ex-PWC partner, led the floatation of Sunderland Football Club, then switched sides to become chief exec of Newcastle United.
