A Gateshead technology specialist has secured over £1m worth of new contracts to support schools across the North of England.
Advantex has been awarded contracts worth over £1m to supply ICT equipment and connectivity services to a range of schools across the North.
The work has been awarded by national construction firm Galliford Try under several schemes, including the Priority School Building Programme (PSBP).
Under the scheme, three schools in Yorkshire – Armthorpe Academy and Ash Hill Academy in Doncaster, and Leeds’ Guiseley School – are being equipped by Advantex with new networks and switching kit, wireless telecommunications and audio-visual systems.
Outside of the PSBP scheme, Advantex’s work at East Leeds Academy in conjunction with Leeds LEP (Local Education Partnership) on behalf of Leeds City Council is ongoing, while its engineers have completed similar installation work at Carlisle’s St John Henry Newman Catholic School.
Stephen O’Connell, Advantex sales and marketing director, commented: “We are continuing to develop our partnership with Galliford Try on this and other schools’ projects.
“This latest work reflects how we help them to deliver effective and time critical solutions, which comply with the Department of Education’s IT framework.”
Jeremy Barnett, operations director at Galliford Try, added: “We are delighted to have awarded Advantex this latest round of schools contracts.
“They have built a reputation in education IT provision and continue to impress with their expertise and added value approach. Furthermore, it’s easier to have one supplier managing the IT development and delivery programme.”
