Arrow Business Communications Limited expands into Scotland with the acquisition of Orca Telecom based in Aberdeen

Arrow is delighted to announce its purchase of Orca Telecom.

Orca Telecom is a leading telecommunications supplier and a perfect complement to Arrow with its similar range of fixed, mobile, voice and data solutions.

This is Arrow’s sixth acquisition in the last five years and will once again significantly boost revenues and allow Arrow to provide local support to its Scottish customer base.

Arrow, headed by Chris Russell, specialises in telephony and IT solutions for businesses. It offers a diverse portfolio ranging from hosted telephony and mobiles through to mobile device management, telephone systems, IT services, voice and data connectivity.  “We identified Orca as an ideal match for Arrow both in product range and location as we already have a number of customers in Aberdeen”, says Russell.

Orca’s employees will remain with Arrow allowing them to continue to look after their customers whilst benefitting from the use of Arrow’s larger resources and expertise. This acquisition will increase Arrow’s total turnover to £26 million as well as providing a substantial footing in the Scottish telecoms market.

Wayne Mackay (Director of Orca Telecom) comments, “We are excited about working with Arrow as we share the same suppliers and, more importantly, the same culture of providing a personal service to business customers.

Arrow continues to reinforce its position in the market as a leading telecommunications and IT supplier to businesses throughout the UK. Arrow’s primary driver is to nurture close customer relationships through personal contact whilst offering dynamic solutions to suit all types of business.
