Telecoms and data services company Maintel has acquired b2b mobile dealer Totility.
The acquisition marks Maintel’s drive into the unified comms market and follows Maintel’s recent posting of its half-year results which showed 20% growth and an 18% rise in profits before tax compared to the same period in 2010.
Totility brings 12,000 Vodafone and O2 connections. Maintel said the company made a good fit, bringing expertise in the fixed and mobile convergence market.
The acquisition, which is subject to shareholders’ approval, will see Totility’s staff move from the company’s Croydon headquarters to Maintel’s London-based HQ.
Totility’s MD Terry McKeever will continue to lead the mobile business as it is integrated with Maintel.
Maintel bought Redstone’s business assets in 2010 to enhance its Avaya capability. The company acheived Avaya Service Expert status this year.
Maintel CEO Eddie Buxton said: ‘Increasingly, customers are looking for a unified solution to their telephony by converging fixed and mobile networks. The acquisition of Totility enables us to enhance the mobile element of our offering.
‘This acquisition underlines our commitment to future growth and the provision of a complete, one-stop communications service, backed by our industry-leading standards of customer support.’
