Arrow Business Communications acquires third services firm

Arrow Business Communications has completed its third acquisition this year, having acquired data centre and cloud services firm AIMES Management Services.

AIMES’ “reputation as a trusted cloud and data centre provider adds significant value to our emerging public sector proposition”, said Arrow.

All of the directors and employees of AIMES will be staying on and will work within the Arrow group.

Dennis Kehoe (left in picture), CEO of AIMES, said: “Becoming part of the Arrow group will help accelerate the growth of AIMES and further enhance our capability to deliver innovative products and services to our customers.

“This new partnership will bring significant benefits and opportunities to AIMES and represents an exciting new chapter in the company’s continued development.”

Richard Burke (right in picture), CEO of Arrow Business Communications, added: “The inclusion of a range of comprehensive data centre and cloud services adds significant value to the wider Arrow group in support of our public sector and enterprise customers, strengthening our portfolio in providing a broad range of collaboration, connectivity, core and cyber services.”

The value of the latest acquisition has not been disclosed. This May, Arrow acquired UK-tec, providing it with access to a range of network and security products and services - including a SD-WAN offering and managed services.

In March, Arrow acquired network solutions company Complete Networks, which is a provider of critical managed WAN and LAN solutions - with a number of hospitals and two ambulance services among its customer base.
