Arrow Business Communications Limited announces another acquisition

Chris Russell, Arrow Business Communications Limited CEO

Arrow is delighted to announce the acquisition of Siebert Industries Ltd (trading as Siebert Telecom Solutions).

Founded in 1990, ​Siebert has a strong track record in providing Hosted, Fixed and Mobile Telephony solutions alongside data connectivity.

Siebert’s 16 staff spread between Glasgow and Aberdeen will remain with the company including one of its founders Alan Muir. Alan will join Arrow Scotland’s management team, led by Sue Woodrow, alongside Wayne Mackay and Rory McEwan who joined Arrow following the acquisition of Orca Telecom in 2015. Alan will continue to play a key role in leading the primary customer relationships that Siebert has developed. The business will come under the leadership of Richard Burke, who was appointed Managing Director at Arrow three months ago to support the company as it continues to expand its national presence and product portfolio.

Collectively Arrow Scotland will have 850 customers, some 4,000 hosted seats and over 20 staff supported from the Glasgow and Aberdeen locations, making Arrow a key player in hosted telephony in Scotland.

Chris Russell, CEO of Arrow, said: “We are delighted with the addition of Siebert to the Arrow Group which builds on the acquisition of Orca Telecom two years ago.

“I’m pleased that Alan Muir will remain with the business alongside Rory and Wayne to drive forward the solutions we provide to our Scottish customers. Adding Siebert’s 16 staff to the Arrow Scotland team will expand our local customer support and fits with Arrow’s ‘buy, build and stay local’ strategy.

Mr Muir added: “We are delighted about being part of the team at Arrow and working alongside Sue, Wayne and Rory. This is a good fit for our staff as we share the same philosophy of providing the highest level of service to our customer base.”

Mr Russell continued: “Our third acquisition of 2017 adds further geographic and product portfolio diversity to Arrow and complete the achievement of our key objectives for the year. I have no doubt Arrow Scotland will continue to grow and thrive in the years to come.”
