ICS Fast Track Success

Panasonic has confirmed Ascot-based ICS Communications as one of its fastest-growing business telephone resellers for the 2005/2006 period after the telecommunications company increased system sales by over a third in the past year.

The news follows hot on the heels of the presentation of one of Panasonic’s Kizuna awards, which was given to the company after it made it onto the electronics giant’s Top Ten Business Telephone Reseller list for the first half of 2005.

“We’re delighted to be named as one of the fastest growing resellers in the country,” comments John Gillborn, ICS’ managing director. “It’s a great achievement for the company and a real indicator of all the hard work, time and effort that the team has put into building their knowledge and expertise of the Panasonic portfolio.”

“2005 was a great year for us in terms of breaking records and winning industry awards, so we know that we’ve set ourselves very high standards to maintain in 2006. I’m happy to say the ICS team is always looking to improve, evolve, and go one better, so I’m confident that we can build on our successes in the forthcoming year.”

Panasonic’s business telephone systems general manager, Roger James, presented John Gillborn with a bottle of champagne at ICS headquarters to mark the announcement.

“To increase turnover by 31% in just 12 months is a remarkable achievement,” says James. “It’s indicative of both the absolute professionalism of the ICS team and the sheer quality of Panasonic’s business telephone systems and we’re looking forward to working with ICS over the next year to capitalise on this great accomplishment.”
