Charterhouse Voice & Data Acquire NETconnection
Friday 10th January 2020: Charterhouse Voice and Data (Charterhouse) are delighted to announce that we have recently acquired NETconnection Systems (NETconnection). A leading managed IT services provider specifically focused on LAN and SD-LAN managed services delivering integrated solutions, their primary focus being with Public Sector organisations.
Established in 1998 and based in Croydon, NETconnection have over 30 staff and in excess of 100 customers.
Charterhouse, founded in 1993, has seen its proposition develop to provide complex and customer-focussed solutions, whilst simultaneously building long-lasting trusted relationships with our customers. These solutions are underpinned by the pillars of connectivity, collaboration and security enabling businesses to operate more efficiently.
In order to expand the full end-to-end proposition within the connectivity pillar, Charterhouse looked to accelerate its LAN expertise during 2019 and thus identified NETconnection as one of the pre-eminent managed LAN and SD-LAN service providers in the UK.
Charterhouse CEO, Mark Brooks-Wadham commented ‘we’re delighted to have found NETconnection – an organisation comprising an exceptionally talented team harnessing great LAN capabilities that will allow us to compliment and develop our existing product and services offering to our diversified customer base. We’re excited about integrating our two teams to further enhance the support and services that we can offer our customers'.
NETconnection CEO, Tony Brar commented ‘our customers were increasingly looking for a consolidated approach to solutions through a single partner. We wanted to find an organisation that we could be part of who would allow us to offer more of what our customers required. Thus providing greater scale as well as a strong presence in the private sector, whilst still preserving NETconnection core expertise and capabilities. We’ve found the ideal organisation in Charterhouse and believe this will strengthen the service and support we currently provide to our existing customers.’
The combining of Charterhouse and NETconnection creates a market leading provider of managed IT, security and business communications in the UK. Creating an organisation with increased breadth and scale, further underpinning our commitment from a proposition and support perspective to all of our customers.
