Container Solutions secures a minority investment with GCP

Container Solutions (“CS”) is pleased to announce a minority investment from Growth Capital Partners (“GCP”), the fourth from their investment Fund V.

Container Solutions is a professional services company founded in 2014 that specialises in Cloud Native transformation, engineering, and operations. We help enterprises adopt new technology that enables them to work on the cloud in a way that is sustainable, integrated with business needs, and ready to scale. The process includes changes not only in technology but also in strategy, organisational culture, process, and other aspects. CS is one of only a handful of companies in the world that are both part of the Kubernetes Training Partner (KTP) programme and a Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP). When companies like Google, Atos, Shell, and Adidas need help with Cloud Native, they turn to Container Solutions.

CS has built a workforce of over 100 people with operations across the globe and key hubs in London, Amsterdam, Montreal and Berlin. The business has delivered rapid year on year growth by winning and growing an attractive base of large clients who want to modernise their approach to cloud technology.

GCP’s investment will support Container Solutions’ ambitious growth plans, supporting existing clients whilst winning new strategic relationships, all underpinned by the business’ specialist and highly sought-after technical capabilities.

Jamie Dobson, CEO, Container Solutions comments:
“This transaction marks a significant and exciting milestone in the development of Container Solutions. The business is growing rapidly and now is the right time to bring in a partner to support the team as we look to scale further.
