Somerset-based information technology solutions provider SHI International on Feb. 14 reported it amassed $10.7 billion in revenue in 2019–improving by 7 percent year over year to surpass 2018’s record-setting milestone.
The company said in the fourth quarter of 2019, revenue reached $3.13 billion, an 8 percent gain year over year.
SHI said its business units demonstrated strong growth both domestically and internationally, and that it experienced steady growth from top partners including Microsoft, Dell, HP Inc., VMware, Cisco, Adobe, Lenovo, Apple, HP Enterprise, and Amazon.
“SHI’s commitment to completely understanding and supporting our customers’ business needs and IT goals continues to drive our growth,” said Thai Lee, president and chief executive officer of SHI. “With that philosophy at our core, we’re continuing to reinvest in our business. With new and expanded infrastructure, resources, and technical competencies, we’re able to continue delivering the advanced services and solutions customers need to accelerate business growth.”
In the fourth quarter of 2019 the company saw the opening of SHI’s Ridge Integration Center, which increased the organization’s capacity to support advanced data center solutions, as did the achievement of Azure MSP Certification.
“SHI’s growth during our third decade has firmly established the company as a global technology and solutions leader,” continued Lee. “SHI continues to build the partnerships and resources that will allow us to identify more opportunities to add value to our growing customer portfolio. SHI’s expert consulting and professional services capabilities will continue to help customers navigate their own digital transformation for the next 10 years and beyond.”
In the past 10 years, SHI tripled its revenue, nearly quadrupled its total employees from 1,300 in 2010 to 5,000 in 2019, and reinvested in infrastructure for both personnel and integrated solutions.
