“To achieve our wider strategic aims, we were keen to find a minority investment partner that recognised the vast potential of ITD, but also that has a patient and long-term outlook, combined with a strong track record of helping businesses scale, both domestically and overseas. In BGF we have found that partner and we’re delighted to be welcoming them into the business.”
