Scottish tech firm Systal Technology Solutions has expanded into the United States, opening a base in Florida.

The global managed network, cloud and security transformation specialist has an existing customer base in the US.

It says it is one of only two non-Internet Service Providers (ISPs) with a physical US network operations centre.  

“Expanding our base of operations in the US is pivotal to delivering our high-value services within the country”, said Neil Nicolson, CEO of Systal. “Systal’s strategy is to buck the trend of the ‘low-cost offshore model’ adopted by many organisations to deliver services within the US marketplace, Systal will drive best-in-class services with the best people in the country. 

“This is at the core of our delivery model and our scaling presence in the US will only further our capability.”

Recognised last year as one of the fastest-growing UK technology businesses, Systal has experienced consecutive years of strong double-digit revenue growth, most recently by 77%. 

Jane Castor, Mayor of the City of Tampa, said: “Tampa’s rise as one of the fastest-growing tech hubs for talent continues to attract leading cybersecurity companies from around the globe. 

“It was a pleasure to meet the Systal team during their site visit and I am thrilled they have chosen Tampa for their U.S. headquarters. They will find the high-quality talent, collaborative community, and supportive ecosystem they need to continue growing.”
