Indigo Telecom Group acquires 4site to expand network design expertise
Network design consultancy, 4site has been acquired by Indigo Telecom Group.
The acquisition is designed to complement Indigo’s capability in the supply of multi-vendor telecom support services, by adding 4site’s design and planning expertise in delivering specialist fibre, and mobile wireless services. The agreement creates a combined business with an annual turnover in excess of £50 million with 300+ employees across the UK, Ireland, France, Germany and Singapore. The deal follows a period of sustained year-on-year organic growth for Indigo, underpinned by its extensive services portfolio and continued international expansion across a global customer base.
Indigo designs, installs and maintains international telecom and data networks that enable their customers to deliver fixed line, broadband, mobile and other data services to end users. 4site is a specialist provider of mobile wireless, and fibre services, including the survey, planning, design and build of wireless and fibre network infrastructure supported by its fibre design centre of excellence, which opened in 2017.
Kevin Taylor, chairman of Indigo commented: ‘’The synergies between our two businesses presents significant opportunities for continued growth and we see huge benefit for our customers from our expanded portfolio of services. Both organisations have strong reputations for delivering industry excellence in consulting, projects, delivery and service and we are very excited by the opportunity this will provide to both our employees and our customers.’
Ian Duggan, CEO of 4site added: ‘This deal accelerates our long-term growth ambitions by becoming part of a leading global business whose values mirror our own. With its financial backing and scale of operation, Indigo is perfectly placed to support 4site’s growth plans and vision for the future. The deal will facilitate the continued development and expansion of our telecoms services in Ireland and the wider international market.’
