Godalming-based Arrow Business Communications has acquired Siebert Industries (trading as Siebert Telecom Solutions).
Siebert, founded in 1990, has a track record in providing hosted, fixed and mobile telephony solutions alongside data connectivity.
Siebert’s 16 staff spread between Glasgow and Aberdeen will remain with the company including one of its founders Alan Muir, who will join Arrow Scotland’s management team, led by Sue Woodrow, alongside Wayne Mackay and Rory McEwan who joined Arrow following the acquisition of Orca Telecom in 2014.
Muir will continue to play a key role in leading the primary customer relationships that Siebert has developed. The business will come under the leadership of Richard Burke, who was appointed managing director at Arrow three months ago to support the company as it continues to expand its national presence and product portfolio.
Collectively Arrow Scotland will have 850 customers, some 4,000 hosted seats and over 20 staff supported from the Glasgow and Aberdeen locations, making Arrow a key player in hosted telephony in Scotland.
Chris Russell, CEO of Arrow, commented: “We are delighted with the addition of Siebert to the Arrow Group which builds on the acquisition of Orca Telecom three years ago. I’m pleased that Alan Muir will remain with the business alongside Rory and Wayne to drive forward the solutions we provide to our Scottish customers. Adding Siebert’s 16 staff to the Arrow Scotland team will expand our local customer support and fits with Arrow’s ‘buy, build and stay local’ strategy.”
Arrow has eight offices with 170 staff supporting a diverse range of businesses from entrepreneurs to national, multi-site organisations.
