As reported in the Scotsman, two companies occupying the same office block building in Glasgow, Cloud Cover IT and MadeBrave, are boosting headcount and doubling their office space after a period of strong growth.
As Insider reports this will take Clyde Gateway’s The Albus building to full capacity.
Cloud Cover are increasing their floor space from 2,329 sq ft to 5,467 sq ft, as well as their current headcount of 31 to 40 by the end of the year. In 2020 so far, they’ve welcomed new clients and been shortlisted in the High Growth Business category at the FSB Scotland Awards.

Cloud Cover IT (CCIT) was started in April 2012 by Lance Gauld, who still owns the business along with his son Alasdair. The company originally had 2 founders and concentrated on IT Infrastructure for small companies in and around the central belt of Scotland.
Up until the creation of CCIT, Lance had been working as a sole trader IT Support specialist for 25 years and had built up a good customer base as well as an excellent reputation but felt it was time to grow the business. CCIT has diversified over the years into numerous areas.
