Dealer evolve telecom has snapped up fellow Vodafone Platinum Partner theWord Direct, increasing its customer base to almost 3,000 small and medium-sized enterprises.
Mark Gordon, evolve's MD, will take over from theWord Direct MD Huw Stiley this month. Day to day management of the business will remain with the existing theWord Direct team.
The acquisition increases evolve's staff to more than 100 and means it will manage more than 60,000 numbers. The company recently bought another dealer, MPC Romford, and has moved to new purpose-built offices in Shoeburyness, Essex.
Gordon said: 'Evolve is delighted to be acquiring such a high calibre company to compliment and add value to the services it already provides. The desire to find a company that is just the right fit, emphasises evolve’s aim of providing the best possible solution and an exceptional level of service to all our customers. TheWord Direct fits in well with this philosophy, as it is an extremely professional, high quality business.'
