NIX Communications Group has purchased Opus Telecom Ltd and its subsidiary Phipps Communications Ltd in deals which are set to double the size of the company and take its turnover to nearly £12 million a year.
NIX Director, Nick Zammit, said: “The first half of 2016 has seen yet more success for us, and the NIX brand is building fast. Completing on our first two acquisitions has made us stronger than ever. We have also just finalised our purchase of a large commercial building in Romsey, Hampshire, which we plan to turn into the first NIX Business Centre. This will be a hub for start-up and small businesses, helping them to hit the ground running. NIX will provide all telecoms, business calls, line rentals and a super-fast 100MG lease line for each room, for a fixed fee each month and all with no commitment. This will just take the NIX brand to another level.”
The two acquisitions mark an important step in NIX’s history; Zammit told Comms Business that these would be the “first of many acquisitions to come.” Zammit also stated that as the company continues to grow he will be looking to attract more talent to NIX. “We want dynamic, self-starters and people passionate about delivering the best service.”
Managing Director of OPUS and Phipps Communications, Mark Castle, has known Zammit for over twenty years. He said: “This deal is great news for our customers who will enjoy access to the same quality of service that they’ve come to expect from Opus and Phipps, with the added reassurance that we have the backing of a larger organisation with additional skills and expertise.”
