A Barnsley based business is celebrating excellent first year financial results this week. 

CSP Systems has reported its 12 month turnover as an unprecedented £350k, with a healthy profit margin. From a standing start in April 2016, the digital networked office solutions provider has built a solid customer base from the South and West Yorkshire areas.  

Operating from the Barnsley Business and Innovation Centre (BBIC), CSP Systems is the culmination of a collective 75 years in the print, copy and scan solution industry. The two directors, Andy Bethel and Thomas Mackrill made the decision to locate the business in centrally within the Yorkshire region. Experienced service engineer, Dean Middleton joined the team to make it one of the most skilled and knowledgeable in the area. 

Operating almost exclusively in Yorkshire, CSP Systems is proud of its local credentials and will continue to focus on the region. Doing so has allowed the business to establish unrivalled response times of typically less than 2 hours. Among its customers are Sheffield legal practice Acclaimed Family Law, fast growing Active Response Security Services and the business behind the Jump Inc phenomenon, Futures Leisure. 

The business is already forecasting further growth for the next 12 months, with plans to take turnover to £400k and increase the size of the team. Director Andy Bethel said: “We couldn’t have anticipated such an outstanding first year of trading when we started out last April.

“We based the business in Barnsley because of the town’s friendly business community, excellent support services for start ups and active Chamber of Commerce. It proved to be the right decision. We’re looking forward to giving something back in the next year by creating new jobs. 

“It’s an exciting time for CSP Systems and we’re all looking forward to the coming year. We have a partnership with DEVELOP which allows up to supply world class hardware into Yorkshire businesses. Teamed with bespoke service technology created by Dean and unrivalled response times, we’re in a position to offer a real alternative to run of the mill print and copy suppliers.”
