IT Lab and Green Fields Celebrate Merger

Mergers & Acquisitions, Announcements / January 20, 2016

Combined Capability Provides Unrivalled Portfolio of IT and Managed Services 

The joining forces of IT Lab and Green Fields is driven by a recognition of the rapidly changing technology landscape and our desire to provide customers of both companies with an expanded portfolio of best practice next generation technology services and solutions.

Underpinned by a common approach towards service excellence and a portfolio of services designed to enable customer performance, the combined company will provide the marketplace with unrivalled capability, flexibility and choice. After a six month period of transition the companies will come together under the IT Lab brand.

Matt Tomon, CEO of Green Fields commented:

“Since our inception, Green Fields has experienced growth and profitability year on year, and this is no doubt due to the people who have made Green Fields the family we all belong to today. However, we have always been ambitious and early evolvers in the IT services market. In order to build our capability and reach, our next step had two paths: either to acquire smaller entities or join forces with a bigger organisation.

After considerable evaluation, we decided that IT Lab provided us the best opportunity to achieve our objectives. Not only would we complement and supplement each other, our cultures are amazingly similar. We truly believe we achieved our goal to do the best by our clients and our staff all while maintaining our integrity in the pursuit of achieving our vision.”

Peter Sweetbaum, CEO of IT Lab commented:

“We have been aware of Green Fields for some time – a company with an enviable reputation for excellence and customer centricity. When we met, we knew quickly that our cultures and our ambitions were the same. We also knew that by putting our two businesses together, we would be able to leverage our size and scale to provide a better range of services and capability that our clients are looking for in this changing technology market place.

We spent significant time testing and ensuring that this combination would be quickly additive to Green Fields staff and clients alike. Having reached an overwhelmingly positive conclusion, we would like to welcome Green Fields staff and clients into the IT Lab family.”
