Arla Foods extends contract with Northgate

Northgate Information Solutions today announces that it has secured a one-year extension to its managed services contract with the UK’s leading dairy company, Arla Foods UK plc.

The one-year extension to 2007 is the fourth such agreement since the original five-year contract was signed in 1998.

Northgate provides Arla Foods with a comprehensive IT managed service covering all desktop, server and network requirements, including installation, support, maintenance and upgrades. Arla Foods also benefits from Northgate’s on-site engineers based at their Leeds head office and at their Hatfield Peverel dairy, in Essex, and Oakthorpe dairy in North London.

As part of the project, Northgate successfully completed the migration of over 600 users to the company’s new head office and new state-of-the-art dairy at Stourton, Leeds.

Mark Sweeney, UK IT Controller at Arla Foods, said today:

“Arla Foods success depends on our ability to efficiently manage communications and processes across our network of dairies and head office. It is critical that we work with partners we can trust. We have been delighted with the service we have received from the Northgate team, and look forward to continuing this successful working relationship.”

Andy Ross, Managing Director of Northgate’s Managed Services, added:

“We are delighted to again be continuing our work with Arla Foods. Our role is to deliver innovative and tailored solutions that add value to our clients’ businesses. We are pleased to be working with Arla Foods to deliver their business needs today and anticipate the challenges of tomorrow.”
