Its facilities in Corsham and Farnborough provide secure data processing, data storage and networking services to the UK public sector. UKcloud’s cloud services have helped save taxpayers’ money by helping customers – including HMRC and DVLA – improve their digital strategies. Founded in 2011, last year the firm was valued at £60m after a £4m investment from BGF. Sales of £16.2m this year are forecast to climb to £36m in 2016 thanks to recent client wins, including Genomics England’s genome sequencing project. Co-founder and chief executive Simon Hansford, 50, previously set up IT services provider Attenda, which ranked No. 2 on our inaugural Tech Track 100 in 2001.
