Following the successful purchase of Swains and Talk Internet in 2017, Wavenet today announces the acquisition of APR Telecoms, a Norfolk based provider of business communication solutions including Telephony, Data, VoIP and Cloud.
APR Telecoms has been a long-standing partner of Wavenet, after years of successful growth and as their primary supplier we were excited to bring APR into the Wavenet Group. The acquisition further develops Wavenet’s position in the UK market and brings many qualified engineers into Wavenet to enhance the existing technical support options.
Andy Rackham, Managing Director of APR Telecoms said: “Wavenet was our largest supplier and already billed our customers on our behalf so we had built an excellent relationship through years of trust and support. This made the process of selling much less stressful, financially attractive and better for both our customers and staff.”
Bill Dawson, CEO of Wavenet commented: “This is an exciting opportunity for the customers and employees of both APR Telecoms and Wavenet. Our increased capabilities and skill sets will further enhance our customer service experience and will give APR Telecoms customers access to Wavenet’s broader and expanded product sets, particularly in unified communications and IT services.”
“I am thrilled to have APR Telecoms joining us and look forward to building on the strengths offered by their business and earlier acquisitions. We pride ourselves on providing services that make businesses brilliant so it’s great that we can bring our passion and market-leading solutions to more customers.”
