We are extremely proud to have been considered for this award alongside esteemed finalists Ramsden International, Supergroup and University of Kent”.

“Netshield took the decision to export its specialist managed IT services two years ago and has found the Belgian market to be very receptive to its state-of-the-art quality service offer. We are all thrilled to be recognised with the coveted Best Newcomer award that firmly establishes Netshield as a key UK exporter of quality services and outstanding successes in the Belgian market”.
