North named HPE Aruba Breakthrough Partner of the Year

North has been named HPE Aruba Breakthrough Partner of the Year UK&I at the HPE Aruba EMEA Channel Partner Awards.

HPE Aruba’s Channel Partner Awards recognise outstanding channel partners who have excelled across a range of categories. North was recognised for its exceptional performance in delivering HPE Aruba networking solutions across a range of sectors, and for increasing market share across the UK.

The award was announced at a virtual ceremony attended by representatives from 75 leading HPE Aruba partners from across EMEA. With only 27 of their partner base of 27,000 receiving awards, North was one of only two UK&I HPE Aruba Solutions Providers to be honoured.

The accolade comes following an exceptional year for North, which saw the business significantly expand its UK footprint and secure multiple high profile contracts, including a £3m contract to design, deliver and support an information management and networking solution for the UK’s latest Super Hospital based on HPE Aruba technology.

Glen Williams, CEO, North, commented:

“We are thrilled to receive the Breakthrough Partner of the Year award. This past year has been one of exceptional growth and development for North. With innovation and collaboration at the core of our business, this award is testament to our team’s dedication to developing innovative solutions that support organisations and businesses to work in smarter, safer and more sustainable ways.”

“With over 20 years’ experience in Wi-Fi technologies and as an established HPE Aruba Gold Partner, this award further demonstrates our networking technology credentials and is testament to our commitment of strengthening our relationship with HPE Aruba and to continuing to deliver industry leading solutions.”

Commenting on the award, Matt Valentine, HPE Aruba, Director UKI, said:

” North is a fantastic partner of HPE Aruba’s who have delivered exceptional growth over the past 12 months. With their IoT expertise and HPE Aruba capabilities, they can truly help take their customers on a journey to a transformed smart, connected infrastructure.
