Core3 Solutions grows staff by 25 percent

Core3 Solutions
has three core beliefs: profits, growth and more growth. Well, that
isn’t an official ethos but it sure seems like it as the company closes
out its 11th year in a row of growth.

The Birmingham-based
firm increased its revenue by 50 percent in 2008 and its staff by
another 25 percent. It also managed to pass the $1 million milestone
for revenue last year.

The IT and web-development firm is
using the down economy to its advantage. Company officials says small-
and medium-sized businesses are dumping their own IT departments and
taking on Core3 Solutions fixed-cost package as a way of saving cash in a tough economy. Its Managed Services sector grew 135 percent in 2008.

Walk-in
repair in its new electronics boutique in Birmingham’s Triangle
District is also helping bring in new revenue. The service has grown 88
percent since the boutique opened and is still growing.
