Space to digitally transform at pace.

Operating in 20 countries worldwide and with more than 1,800 employees, Renold creates market-leading products across diverse applications.

As the manufacturer’s previous IT provider was closing one of its data centres, Renold was required to either migrate their applications to another data centre or undertake a new digital transformation project. Renold decided that undergoing a significant cloud migration programme was the best solution for the business, as it was more cost-effective, agile and scalable and appointed Digital Space to complete the project in June 2020.

However, as the data centre was due to close in September 2020, the migration needed to be completed within 12 weeks. Due to the considerable short timeframe and unavoidable barriers to the cloud migration project, such as staff on furlough and Covid-19 restrictions, a dedicated project management team and our expert engineers worked around the clock to migrate 60 virtual machines across Renold’s business, and provide a full wraparound service delivery from beginning to end.

Following the successful completion of the project, Renold PLC is now looking to further develop its digital strategy programme over the coming years and has signed a flexible five-year agreement with Digital Space, where the team will support the manufacturer with scaling its IT solutions as the business grows on a global basis.
