- Dalbeattie-based business has increased its headcount by 50% this year to 60 with plans to almost double this over next five years.

- Company has recently opened new bases in Bellshill and Sheffield with plans to extend the existing Dalbeattie HQ.
ETB Technologies, a leading reseller of refurbished servers, storage, and network equipment, is on target to hit £15 million in turnover as it marks its 20th anniversary– just two years after meeting the £10 million milestone.
The Dalbeattie-based business now employs 60 people after increasing its headcount by 50% since 2020, with ambitions to grow this further over the next five years. The appointments have included key personnel across operations, e-commerce and business development]. This has been boosted with the opening of two new sites in Bellshill and Sheffield, helping ETB to tap into the local talent pool in each location and further grow its operations.
Additionally, ETB has announced its intention to further upscale the business by extending its customer base internationally. Already shipping to more than 75 countries, the refurbished enterprise equipment supplier is embarking on an ambitious growth strategy with plans to extend its market share, particularly across Europe. Currently, the company’s international footprint represents half its revenue, with roughly 40% of sales heading to countries across the EU, and 10% to the US. The company supports the refurbishment of Dell, Cisco, HP and Juniper networking equipment.
Nick Stapleton, Managing Director, ETB Technologies, said: “From our humble beginnings 20 years ago, ETB Technologies has become a force to be reckoned with, now distributing our refurbished enterprise IT equipment to more than 75 countries. All of that could not be achieved without the sterling effort of every person that works with us. We are proud of our achievements over the last two decades. While there is no doubt that the last 18 months have been tough, with both Brexit and Covid-19 placing hurdles in our paths, we are proud to have weathered the storm and are now experiencing steady market conditions allowing us to recruit 20 new members of staff.
“The future potential of the refurbished enterprise IT sector is considerable. The relationships we have cultivated since launching in 2001 – either through the customers, vendors, suppliers, or partners we work with – have enabled us to flourish. But the work doesn’t stop now. With bold ambitions, we are committed to extending our reach and bringing on board more employees and suppliers to achieve these.”
