Altogether, the company employs 55 people, and it has recently carried out an office expansion to house the growing team.

Dave Helm, Blue Logic’s director, said yesterday: “2013 was an extremely successful year for Blue Logic, and our increased sales demonstrate that our commitment to providing leading IT-based solutions for our clients is working.

“The increase in work has enabled us to expand and we’ve taken on 12 new employees in the past year alone, with each one adding a new skill to the business that will help us grow further over the next 12 months.”

In 2013, Blue Logic also added some major clients to its roster – including Bradford-based supermarket chain Morrisons, the West Yorkshire Probation Trust and Eddisons Commercial.

The company also achieved Sage 200 Partner status, which means it can offer sophisticated accounting IT services.

In 2014, the company expects to grow turnover by another £1m and take on further employees. Plans are also in place for a large office extension at Blue Logic’s head office, near Thorner, in Leeds, to cope with the increase in staff.

Mr Helm added: “We have ambitious plans for 2014, but it’s not just about expanding the business.

“We continually strive to improve our services. The IT sector is a fast moving market, and over the next 12 months we will continue to develop our service offering to deliver the solutions that match our clients’ needs.”

Blue Logic can provide hardware and infrastructure installation services.

It can help with software installation and support, and virtual IT helpdesk contracts. It also provides web design and development services.
