Nasstar has completed its acquisition of the national ICT services business of KCOM. The existing KCOM National ICT services business will fall under the Nasstar brand within three months.
The deal, which was announced in June, significantly increases the scale, propositions, and presence of Nasstar, enabling it to address large enterprises and public sector organisations across a broader product and services portfolio. The transaction brings Nasstar’s UK headcount to over 1,200 employees.
Wayne Churchill (pictured), CEO of Nasstar, said, “We have been delighted with the feedback from customers since we announced the acquisition, and this has helped move the deal to completion quickly. We now look forward to the future and realising the value and opportunities that the combination of KCOM’s people, capabilities and customers represents combined with Nasstar.”
The Rail Delivery Group is a long-term customer of KCOM. Simon Moorhead, the company’s chief information officer, added, “Our long-standing relationship with KCOM has been successful for both organisations in supporting crucial information and ticketing services for rail customers across Britain. We look forward to working on the next phase of development for cloud and customer-serving technologies with the additional insight, capability and innovation offered by Nasstar.”
