A BARNSLEY IT support company which helps hundreds of charities to keep running smoothly is expanding.

Kendray Business Centre-based Cultrix has moved into bigger premises and recruited two apprentices to its eight-strong team, which looks after 400 clients, including 150 from the charity sector.

Managing director Shaun Wilders, right, says the company has clients spread across the country and is now aiming to gain more from the surrounding area.

Mr Wilders, who launched his business in the attic of his home in Barnsley town centre in 2002, said: “This is a new chapter for the company in freshly revamped premises that are three times bigger than what we’ve had before.”

Enterprising Barnsley business coaches have helped Mr Wilders to develop the business by providing help including leadership training and marketing.

Mr Wilders said: “Business can be lonely so it’s been really useful to access support from Enterprising Barnsley.

“My point of contact, business development manager John Heckingbottom, has been at the end of the phone with invaluable advice and that makes all the difference.”

Cultrix’s charity sector clients include the Community Foundation Network, the Charity Retail Association and Age UK.

Commercial clients include letting agents and solicitors.
