"In addition to" would be correct in this instance. As an alternative, one could say "inclusive of", but it has a slightly different meaning, so best stick w/ "in addition to X"...

Without seeing the full context, it is likeliest that you want "in addition to." A common, correct usage:

In addition to apples, I also like oranges.

But this is also correct (though quite a bit quirkier):

In addition of apples, I use a calculator, especially when there are many of them.

    Note re: "But this is also correct (though quite a bit quirkier): "In addition of apples"

    - Not merely more quirky, but as well a "Britishism". As an American born to an English (Essex) mother & scion of an English family, I heard this expression often as a youth, but to the "American ear" (I was brought up in NYC and Chicago), "in addition of" reeks of anachronism. Just my two pence.
