Phusion acquired by Sword Group

Phusion IM, leading specialists in engineering information software and services has been acquired by international IT solutions company Sword Group.

After 30 years of managing transformational information projects for some of the world’s largest organisations, this next step in Phusion’s evolution will offer customers an enhanced service and software proposition, that will now be supported by international scale, increased capability and enhanced innovation.

Having worked closely over the past 3 years on various projects, including the global rollout of an energy supermajor’s Master Data Model, it was evident that Phusion’s values and solutions aligned strongly with Sword’s vision of delivering world-leading IT & digital transformation solutions.

Sword Group is a global company, with an extensive presence in the U.K where they provide innovative digital solutions across the Energy, Public, and Finance sectors. Phusion will continue to operate from the North East of England, allowing them to not only continue to be closely aligned with the boom in energy transition projects, but also grow their regional talent pool from an area that is synonymous with Engineering and IT skills.
