RAD Group Welcome General Geek to the RAD Family

We were delighted to announce the recent acquisition of Braintree-based General Geek Limited into the RAD Group family.

Established in 2010 General Geek are a full-service IT support company providing commercial IT support for businesses throughout Essex. We’re thrilled to bring their decades of IT industry knowledge into RAD Group to further strengthen our ability to service our clients to the highest of standards.

This strategic acquisition represents another significant step forward for RAD, further strengthening our capability to deliver outstanding customer service across the UK.

This partnership has been months in the making and has brought with it a number of key benefits and outcomes.

  • The RAD Group will gain experienced staff and invaluable technical expertise, meaning our clients’ IT requirements will be supported with additional expertise
  • Our industry knowledge will both deepen and broaden. Namely within the Finance, Construction, and Healthcare niches, helping usher in newer, more effective ways of managing and maintaining IT infrastructures
  • With a larger team, we are able to diversify and specialise our staff improving our overall ability to deliver great IT services

Our Director, Andrew Cochrane had this to say on the new relationship.

“General Geek has been going for 7 years and in that time they’ve grown organically by word of mouth due to the excellent service levels they deliver. It’s a well respected IT support provider in the Braintree and surrounding Essex areas, working with clients in a multitude of industries including local charities, Healthcare, and Aviation. To say that we’re excited about having this reputable name under our wing is an understatement. Welcome to the RAD family, General Greek. We look forward to doing some great work together!”

General Geek’s previous owner, Chris Houghton, is equally thrilled by the opportunity.

“Having been a small business all these years it’s fantastic that we can now treat our clients to a bigger and more experienced team. What’s more, now we can simultaneously offer them the boutique, personal service that they originally signed up for. This really makes us stand out from the crowd. The next few years should be very exciting indeed.”

From everyone at RAD Group we would like to personally welcome General Geek staff, partners and of course clients to the RAD family and look forward to working with you for years to come.

Andrew, Chris and the rest of the RAD and General Geek team.
