Focus Technology Group has bought two Dunedin-based businesses in the last three months, adding six staff to its complement of 70 staff in the South Island.

The tech company says it is now the largest IT support provider in the South Island for mid-sized businesses.

The locally-owned and operated tech company bought the IT division of Deloitte Dunedin in July, as well as IT solutions provider Techbox in August.

Chief executive Rod Sinclair said Focus operated across seven locations - Christchurch, Invercargill, Dunedin, Queenstown, Timaru, Wanaka, and Gore.

Mr Sinclair said the company was founded in 1994 and had evolved from a ``small start-up into a multi-faceted, region-wide organisation.''

"These purchases have meant we have significantly increased our staffing levels in Dunedin and doubled them in Timaru.

"This is our way of showing businesses in the regions that we are committed to ensuring that we provide local support in our towns and cities that we service.''

Focus Dunedin has consolidated both businesses to new premises located in Cargill House, Princes St, Dunedin.
