The agreement will see b4b Group supply IT solutions to seven of G&L’s international offices, located in Belfast, Mumbai, Montreal, San Diego, New York, London and Marlow.

“Working collaboratively with G&L across seven locations within its global network, b4b Group will provide creative, innovative solutions tailored to the company’s specific needs – supporting the organisation’s plans for continued global expansion by ensuring that it remains one step ahead.”

The deal will involve b4b Group delivering connectivity and wi-fi solutions to G&L’s new Belfast office, while an additional managed firewall service will be implemented across all seven office locations, aimed at safeguarding customer data and digital infrastructure as a priority.

Alex Clempson, chief technology officer at G&L Scientific, explained: “With local consultants in over 100 countries, along with multiple offices around the globe, we are experiencing a growing need to increase productivity and scalability in order to be flexible enough to respond to ever changing market and industry conditions.

“The IT solutions delivered by b4b Group will go a long way in terms of providing G&L Scientific with that flexibility, while also ensuring that our networks remain secure and guarded against a range of cyber threats.”

G&L Scientific provides solutions for a range of scientific assignments, serving industry sectors including pharmaceuticals, biologics, medical devices, consumer health, animal health and generics. The company recently relocated from its former premises at Downshire Place in Belfast to a new Centre of Excellence on the 10th floor of the Lanyon Tower building.

The business, which is supported by an in-house team of engineers, provides fully integrated managed IT services to an expanding customer base which incorporates household names within the private and public sectors across the UK and Ireland.
