Jelly reaches independence after five years
Chessington based dealer Jelly Communications has celebrated its fifth birthday by becoming a fully independent company.
The company, which was established in 2005, was previously a subsidiary of distributor Frequency Telecom but on 30 June it became an independent limited company.
Since its launch, Jelly has reached £1m turnover and has over 800 customer accounts. As part of its expansion, it opened a new office in Wakefield in October last year.
The dealer marked its birthday with celebrations, attended by representatives of T-Mobile and RIM, at its Chessington office on 13 July. Jelly is a T-Mobile Business Partner and BlackBerry Alliance member.
Frequency Telecom MD, Gareth Limpenny (pictured), said: ‘We started Jelly from a single desk in the corner of our main office and to see the business now formally established and expanding in both the south and north of the country is very gratifying. I have to pay tribute to the team at Jelly whose determination and enthusiasm has been a major part of its success, and also to T-Mobile and BlackBerry, both of whom have provided tremendous support over the years.’
T-Mobile independent partners area sales manager, Jay Frankenberger, said: ‘We’re delighted to see Jelly achieve this milestone. T-Mobile is very pleased to have helped Jelly generate the high quality connections that it has come to be recognised for and we wish the business much success for many more years.’
