Arrow acquires services business UK-tec

Surrey-based Arrow Business Communications has sealed its second deal of the year, this time snaring services company UK-tec. 

The transaction gives Arrow access to a range of network and security products and services including a SD-WAN offering and managed services.

Ian Jackson, co-founder and MD of UK-tec, said: “The acquisition advances our strategy by at least two years. Being part of the Arrow group provides us with the structure and capability to support the UK channel with a range of services.”

Arrow CEO Richard Burke said: “As a group we have been looking to accelerate the development of our SD-WAN, complex networking and wider channel offering.

“Bringing the UK-tec business into the group enhances our capability in all of these areas, with experience that will benefit the Arrow group and its channel partners.”

The deal follows Arrow's acquisition of Complete Networks in March, a provider of managed WAN and LAN solutions with a number of hospitals and two ambulance services among its customer base.

Previous acquisitions also include Scotland-based cloud services provider Click and Altinet, an international provider of IT security and storage services.
