John-Whitty-of-GCI

Hot on the heels of July’s acquisition of Response Data Communications, Solar Communications has announced its latest acquisition of Denwa Limited, for an undisclosed fee.

A business communications provider with offices in Salford, Chippenham, and Harlow, Solar is bolstering its managed services offering, adding the experience and expertise of Burnley-based Denwa into its portfolio.

The enhanced portfolio offers increased choice to the customers of both businesses, allowing them to take advantage of new and innovative capabilities across a range of leading edge technologies, including SD WAN, Contact Centre, On-site and Cloud Storage and a wide range of business-enhancing solutions.

Solar welcomes Denwa’s employees who will play a vital role in driving the Group’s UC offering, drawing on the extensive experience, technical understanding and customer-focused service of the team.

Rob Scott, the founder and Managing Director of Denwa will leave the business following the transfer of operations.

John Whitty CEO of Solar Communications, said:

“This latest and exciting addition to Solar Group comes on the back of July’s acquisition of RDC. The timely and successful integration of RDC allows for further acquisitions to support the Group strategy, allowing Solar to address the under-served mid-market with innovative and value-enhancing capabilities, both organically and via strategic acquisition.

“Denwa is a proven service-focused business with a very strong reputation in serving SMB and mid-market business customers.

“We have spent the last 12 months focusing on an investment plan that ensures our business processes and systems can support our appetite for growth and development, ensuring they are capable of delivering excellent service to our clients. Alongside this, the recruitment of an extremely experienced and highly motivated executive team provides a strong platform for Solar to address the significant opportunity available.”

Rob Scott founder and MD of Denwa, said:

“The Denwa team spent the last 12 years building and developing a strong company and service offering and have had the pleasure of working with some great customers. With Solar’s strong portfolio and service-led culture I am sure that the business will go from strength to strength.”
