Based in the heart of Ilkeston, Derbyshire, Nexsis Comms is celebrating its 10th birthday this year.
Nexsis Comms, which provides network infrastructure and structured cabling installation to companies throughout the country, was developed in 2009 by local entrepreneurs Leon Braisby and Sean Newbold. The pair met at school and went on to advance as engineers in their prospective fields.
While gaining a wealth of experience with BT, Braisby began his own business in the late 1990s delivering structured cabling projects. Newbold, who had travelled globally as an installation and support engineer, joined forces with Braisby to form Nexsis Communications. The pair decided to forge their own business using their personal knowledge and backgrounds of the industry in 2009, weathering the storm of one of the most devastating recessions in recent UK history in the process.
Starting as a structured cabling company installing cables for local buildings and businesses, demand for their work grew and Nexsis was soon able to expand the products and services it offered. These services now include everything from hosted telephony to CCTV installation and maintenance. The company has since seen a steady rise in custom and revenue.
From humble beginnings, Nexsis Comms now boasts a wealth of clients across the world, providing jobs and valuable services to the local and wider communities, including their growing team of more than 25 highly skilled professionals. Amongst these staff members are many friends and relatives of the entrepreneurial pair, who work tirelessly to ensure their local Ilkeston business achieves its ambitious goals.
Nexsis Comms began the run-up to this milestone year by accelerating plans to expand and grow. They have appointed two Non-Executive Directors, Martyn Cole and Ian Terry, to further develop growth strategies, improve governance and add to the skills of the management team.
Cole, who has over 30 years’ experience in the retail and technology industry including senior leadership positions with Fujitsu and as Head of Global Retail Services for The Body Shop International PLC, said “We’re grateful to all our people here at Nexsis Comms and our customers for making our first 10 years a success. We are really excited and looking forward to our next 10 years.”
So, what does the future hold for this local Ilkeston business? Nexsis Comms is expanding their product offering, ensuring that they stay ahead of the curve by keeping up-to-date with the latest technologies. They’re also looking to offer clients ongoing support and maintenance as part of their packages.
Over the next five years, they expect to grow both in terms of team size and revenue and gain new premises within Ilkeston. In the more immediate future, they look forward to rewarding their staff and loyal customers with 10th birthday celebrations throughout 2019.
