Barnsley expansion for expanding IT business
Phil Harvey, RDS Global MD

Executing growth plans has seen expanding IT firm RDS Global move into new office space in Barnsley, bringing a trio of digital jobs to the area.

With support from Enterprising Barnsley – the council’s development arm – the firm will take up space at the town’s Digital Media Centre (DMC).

RDS Global currently employs 30 staff across two offices in Derby and Filey and its turnover in the last year has grown from £2 million to £2.5 million.

Its third office in Barnsley will provide tailored network services including IT support, cloud, hardware and consultancy solutions to a number of blue chip companies.

MD Phil Harvey said: “The team at Enterprising Barnsley has gone above and beyond for us with a detailed support programme and we’re looking forward to implementing the strategy in the coming months.

“Our customers are increasing their investment in RDS solutions, so to meet this demand, and to provide a midpoint between our offices in Derby and Filey, we decided to set up a South Yorkshire base.

“We were really wowed by the DMC – not only by the fantastic building, but the culture, people, networking opportunities and business support is impressive.”
