25 Years of HBP Systems’ – Our History
As HBP Systems’ enters its 25th year of business, it has a long, rich heritage, starting with David Smith & Sue Dixon founding the company through a management buyout to sell and implement accounting software to local businesses. The company has grown to become one of the largest, IT & Software Providers in the area supporting over 600 customers and employing over 50 staff in various departments.
“For the past 25 Years, we’ve been lucky to hire staff who have played a key role in bringing HBP Systems to where it is today. Our IT Support, Software Support, operations, commercial, finance and management teams have never been stronger; in 2016 we recorded our best financial year in the company’s history, and we are already growing on that in as we enter 2017; we are extremely well positioned to grow HBP in line with our 5 year growth plan.”
