3 praises Activ Telecom distribution agreement
3 has praised Fone Logistics founder Ian Gillespie and financial director Michael Fitzpatrick’s move to set up as a 3 distributor.
Paul Foley, 3 head of business sales, said: ‘We have always had a very strong working relationship with Ian Gillespie and Michael Fitzpatrick, and we are delighted to support them with their plans to become a dedicated 3 distribution partner as we forge ahead with our exciting growth plans for 2010 and beyond.’
Fone Logistics was founded in 1996 and has a direct distribution relationship with 3.
The Daisy Group bought Fone Logistics for £3.6m today (10 June), but the part of the business that connects 3 has been sold to Activ Telecom.
Fone Logistics is Daisy’s sixth acquisition in a year. In August last year, Daisy bought Redstone, which is now known as Anglia Telecom, for £17m.
