Velstar Completes Third Acquisition

We are growing again! It’s not often you get your summer body ready in time for the sunshine, but, following the acquisition of 9xb (an award winning B2B eCommerce agency based in Leeds, UK), Velstar is looking great and getting ready to flex. 

For the last 20 years, 9xb has been developing custom ecommerce solutions using its software platform Peracto. Thanks to Peracto, and the amazing 9xb team, the agency has innovated its way around complex problems and delivered bespoke solutions for some amazing brands, vastly improving their commercial performance.

So what does that mean here at Velstar? Well we have only gone and nearly doubled  in size, bringing our headcount to a whopping 120, as well as a base in Leeds! (Did someone say road trip?!)

A word from our co-founder and CEO, Dan Sheard: 

“The acquisition of 9xb is a major step in Velstar’s continued journey of client centric growth. While Velstar has traditionally focused on the Shopify Plus website development and marketing services for direct-to-consumer brands, 9xb is truly complementary to Velstar through its main focus on B2B clients. Velstar will ensure a smooth transition for customers and colleagues, with a tireless focus on client satisfaction and exemplary service.”

With multiple awards under their belt, and landing 38 in Prolific North 2024’s top 50 digital agencies, we are thrilled with our new additions and can’t wait to welcome them to the team, along with 50 clients.
