Network services company Arrow has announced its acquisition of the assets of TMS Ltd (trading as TMG), a provider of telephone systems, maintenance and network services.
Arrow, headed by Chris Russell, specialises in providing communications solutions for business and corporate customers and already has key partner relationships with RIM, Vodafone, O2 and Gamma. “We choose our technology partners very carefully and value TMG’s expertise in voice/data convergence and their commitment to installing and maintaining telecommunications systems”, says Russell.
This completes Arrow’s portfolio of mobiles and applications for businesses, fixed solutions and telephone systems and will complement the hosted products that Arrow launched earlier in the year. “We are already seeing new business from our existing long term clients who value Arrow’s approach, this really completes our current product set and will see our business expand again in 2011”, continued Russell.
Jo Upton, the Sales Director at TMG who will now head up the telephone systems division of Arrow was pleased to complete the deal and stated, “We have been working with the Arrow team for some time now and are really excited to now be in a position to offer a full range of telecommunications services to our customers”.
Customers, suppliers and employees of TMG will be integrated into the Arrow business and will be re-branded Arrow Mobile Communications Ltd. The systems division of the business including all 26 employees will continue to operate from their current office in Bromsgrove. The addition of these employees will take Arrow’s total headcount to 77 across 3 UK offices and turnover will increase to over £20m per annum.
