Quiksilva Acquired by Harris Computer systems
Canadian technology investor Harris Computer Corporation has acquired Chippenham-based Quicksilva, a supplier of IT systems integration and messaging services.
Quicksilva has been associated with prestigious projects in the public and private sectors, alongside a big focus on health and social care which built a long association with the NHS. Quicksilva was created in 1999 to meet the growing need for such an approach to IT development and delivery.
Founder Gayna Hart said: “I have developed Quicksilva for 20 years and I feel now it is time to see how far it can go with the backing of an investor.” Headquartered in Ottawa, Harris focuses on acquiring businesses with growth potential, managing them well and scaling them up.
