Azzurri Buys DVH Group

Communications and technology company, Azzurri Communications, has announced that it has acquired DVH Group, a leading mobile consultancy. Based in London, DVH has an annual turnover of £3.5m and employs 31 staff. The move sees Azzurri complete its fourteenth acquisition in five years, confirming its position as one of the UK’s largest independent voice and data companies with annual turnover in excess of £100m.

DVH specialises in providing mobile voice and data solutions to clients including Land Securities and Bovis Homes. The acquisition will allow Azzurri to strengthen its current highly successful mobile offering. From DVH, Simon Price will join the Azzurri Mobile division as sales director and Ben Orchard as finance and operations director.

Martin St. Quinton, CEO at Azzurri, comments: “The DVH acquisition further demonstrates our commitment to growth. The company is an excellent fit with our existing mobile business and will add tremendous value to the Azzurri offering and brand. With each acquisition we make, we are combining the strengths of the previous businesses and developing Azzurri into a dynamic, major UK supplier of complementary communications solutions.”

Azzurri Communications was formed in June 2000 and has grown through thirteen previous strategic acquisitions, incorporated under one Azzurri brand in July 2003. Azzurri say DVH will be integrated into the organisation with virtually no disruption to the existing business.

Simon Price, sales director of DVH says: “We are really excited to be joining such a fast growing and successful company. A major attraction for us was the support and expertise that will now be available within the Azzurri group and we know that both our staff and clients will truly benefit from this. We are looking forward to the future and know the move will allow us to flourish in such a competitive market.”
