Manchester-based digital agency Intechnica has secured a £900,000 investment package to support its growth plans.
Intechnica has received backing from Mercia Technologies, the Greater Manchester Combined Authority through its investment fund, and three business angels. It represents the third major investment by the funds, which first backed the company in 2013.
Founded in 2007, Intechnica’s software TrafficDefender is designed to help online retailers deal with surges in demand at peak times such as Black Friday. The company, which employs 65 staff, boasts customers such as online appliance retailer AO.com and bookmaker William Hill.
Intechnica managing director Jeremy Gidlow said: “It is exceptionally pleasing that our investors, who first backed the company four years ago, have once again demonstrated their commitment and belief in our innovative software and global ambitions.
“Our products and services provide solutions to the challenges of managing and optimising human and non-human web traffic, and this latest investment will help us tap into international markets as well as boosting our client base in the UK.”
