“There’s an excellent synergy between Celerity and Chilli and today’s deal enhances our service offerings while enabling cross-selling opportunities to drive growth through integration.” 

Chilli IT’s 17 employees will continue working from Chester, retaining their brand.

Richard Warren, Chilli Founder, added: “This is a statement of intent for the future and provides significant benefits for our team and clients now Chilli is part of a bigger, entrepreneurial organisation.”
