The deal will see 4Com deliver new products and services, including managed IT services and Office WiFi solutions, to its customer base while introducing its business telephone networking to Midshire’s existing clients.

It has been announced that Midshire Telecom will retain its brand and operate as part of the 4Com Group of companies.

“Midshire Telecom will benefit immensely from the scale that 4Com’s nationwide network of customers offers and means more SMEs across the UK will get access to an impressive suite of IT services, from maintenance to security.”

4Com’s Chief Executive Officer, Gary Scutt, said: “Midshire Telecom has a well-earnt reputation in the industry.

“As our first ever acquisition, this is a huge milestone for us and it was incredibly important we got it right. It was essential to have a partner we knew we could trust. Moore Barlow supported us throughout the process and ensured we had everything necessary to make the transition as smooth as possible for both sides of the acquisition.”
