Cwmbran IT specialist scores major new contract


Cwmbran-based IT specialist, OSSC IT, has been appointed by Cardiff City Football Club as its in-house IT support company. 

OSSC IT, which is operates from Springboard Business Innovation Centre ~ Wales  in Cwmbran, has already helped the club to deliver the UEFA Super Cup match between Real Madrid and Seville, and received praise from UEFA for the quality of their service.

They will continue to provide the club with IT support, managing the club's day-to-day IT requirements as well as playing a crucial behind the scenes role at major matches.  

Paul Hilder, MD of OSSC IT, said: “We are delighted to be working with Cardiff City FC. Our first job for the club, delivering the UEFA Super Cup match between Real Madrid and Seville, was a massive test for our engineers, but one they passed with flying colours.

“Larger IT support providers talk about partnership, when all they really see is a continuous income stream from a captive client. Further, they simply cannot deliver the micro-management that modern systems require. We truly partner with our clients, taking control of their networks and systems, and treating them as our own. I believe this is why companies are so keen to work with us.” 

Wayne Nash, Stadium Manager at Cardiff City FC, said: “We are very happy to be working with OSSC. They have already proved their worth in helping us to successfully deliver the UEFA Super Cup, Real Madrid v Sevilla, in very demanding circumstances.”

As well as Cardiff City FC, OSSC IT, which employs a team of nine, also works with the Newport Gwent Dragons, Newport County and Newport RFC, as well as Alun Griffiths Civil Engineering Contractors, amongst others.

The company was established 15 years ago in Monmouthshire but moved to Torfaen when Springboard opened in 2006 to be close to other up-and-coming IT and technology based companies.

Springboard is a joint venture between Torfaen council and Welsh Government, and was set up to support technology companies by offering them high-quality accommodation and access to business support.

Lewis Jones, deputy leader of Torfaen council, said: “This is fantastic news for OSSC IT and shows how the facilities and support on offer at Springboard can help companies secure major contracts.”
