About Novosco

Novosco offer enterprise-level hosting services to mid-market organisations in the UK and Ireland and their unrivalled industry-leading service levels have allowed them to keep every customer since inception.

Novosco were founded in 1994 by current Managing Director Patrick McAliskey. After he left the RAF, he met someone who agreed it would be better to make money for themselves. Patrick bought his partner out in 1998.

Novosco have grown fast. Headquarters are still in Belfast, with more than 50 staff, but satellite offices have now opened in Dublin, Cork and Manchester.

The firm’s philosophy is to go out of their way to hire the very best staff in the industry, then do it better, cheaper and quicker than the competition.

With that in mind, their mission is: to be fearless champions of better, backed up by core values of teamwork, excellence, respect and fun.
