Ixis today announces the acquisition of Cheshire-headquartered LiberoNet as part of our ambitious growth plans

Ixis have historically specialised in Drupal development, support and maintenance, and hosting services for websites, but is now expanding its enterprise quality expertise to cover other open source platforms. The acquisition is a key part of this diversification strategy, enabling Ixis to rapidly acquire a broad spread of skills and experience using open source software such as WordPress, Shopware and Magento.

LiberoNet and Ixis are a perfect fit. LiberoNet’s e-commerce, WordPress and UX expertise will complement Ixis allowing us to expand our service offering to a wider audience.

Ultimately, Ixis prides itself on being a forward-thinking agency, committed to the best fit, safe, secure and proven technologies and harnessing them for our client’s benefit, and branching out onto other open source platforms is the natural evolution of that. We’re really excited about this next phase in the company’s development, and to have their talented people along for the ride.

The LiberoNet team will be relocating from their office in Birchwood and joining Ixis’ headquarters at The Base in Central Warrington. Four full-time staff, including the founder Dan Pala, a project manager and two full stack developers. 

We are very happy to be joining up with Ixis. At LiberoNet we were ready to move into the next stage of growth, this merge will allow us to benefit from Ixis’ strengths, including their knowledge base, ISO certifications and excellent support service.
