An East Lancashire technology specialist has ‘wired up’ to a global business opportunity.

Burnley-based Holker IT – with additional offices in Preston – is to provide a complete IT infrastructure and support service for Slingco, a world leader in the design and production of wire rope engineering products.

With headquarters in Rossendale and a major base in America, Slingco boasts international customers across a wide spectrum of industries including civil engineering, aerospace and oil and gas.

Matthew Metcalfe, Holker IT managing director, said: “Slingco’s pedigree is there for all to see and to be asked to supply IT support for a company of such stature represents a major coup for us. IT drives big business these days and we have laid out a bespoke package to suit Slingco’s precise requirements, including a virtual IT manager and a fully-manned helpdesk.”

Rebecca Shellard, group financial controller at Slingco said: “We supply customers across many different locations and time zones and it is imperative that we can rely on the highest level of IT. As we continue to grow, these technological demands also increase so we have entrusted Holker IT to upgrade our system and future-proof the overall infrastructure. Holker IT comes with a glowing recommendation and it is already clear to us how they have earned such strong reputation as a technology specialist; we look forward to forging a long partnership with them.”
