Arrow Business Communications' London office
Arrow Business Communications has strengthened its presence in London with the acquisition of Reeves Lund and the opening of a new office.
Arrow has completed the acquisition of Reeves Lund Ltd, a boutique telecoms reseller based in Farringdon, London which has been providing telecoms services in the city for over 20 years.
The business has focused on selling data connectivity products and services alongside on-premise maintenance for Avaya systems, but more recently has been successful in selling SIP Trunks and Gamma Horizon hosted telephony solutions.
Former directors, Patrick Lund and Peter Harper-Hill will be leaving the business but the rest of the staff will remain in their current roles ensuring a smooth transition for customers.
Lund said: "I'm delighted that Arrow have picked up the baton from Peter and myself and we will work with them to ensure a smooth customer transition.
"Our staff are excited about the opportunity offered by Arrow as they will be able to provide our customers with enhanced support services and a broader range of products.“
Following the acquisitions in 2017 of Pulse Business Energy and Worksmart Technologies, Arrow has now merged all three London offices into one which is centrally located close to London Waterloo.
The new office opened on 12 March and provides Arrow with a stronger presence in London along with an accessible and welcoming venue for meetings and events. Arrow’s headquarters are in Surrey and the company has five more regional offices around England and Scotland.
Commenting on the acquisition and new office, Arrow CEO Chris Russell, said: “We are excited at the prospect of accommodating all our London-based staff under one roof.
"The new office will no doubt become a driving force for the adoption of the Arrow culture across all of the acquired businesses and we look forward to welcoming our clients there.”
He added: “The acquisition of Reeves Lund, our first of 2018 and our fourth in the last 12 months, brings a strong track record of providing connectivity solutions to mid-sized customers.
"Reeves Lund has successfully grown and nurtured long-standing relationships with a range of significant customers, in particular in Legal and Financial services.
"Our new London office will now be responsible for some £15m of revenues and 500 customers in London and the South East.“
