Sir Peter Rigby has consolidated Specialist Computer Holdings and Specialist Computers International, both of which were previously in the Top Track 100, into SCH. The company supplies big organisations such as British Airways and HSBC with IT support, from hardware and software to technical assistance. More than half of SCH’s 2003 sales of £1,740m came from outside Europe. Its European operations have grown significantly through five acquisitions, the most recent being GE Capital IT Solutions Spain in March 2003.
