Munich-based Cancom Group has snapped up Belfast service provider Novosco as it seeks to expand in the UK and gain a foothold in the Irish market.
Novosco was founded by Patrick McAliskey and John Lennon and currently employs circa 300 people.
It has offices in Dublin and Daresbury, near Manchester, in addition to its Belfast HQ; and counts a range of public, private and voluntary sector organisations among its customers, including several large UK NHS Trusts and housing associations.
“This is a positive and exciting development for Novosco, our people, our customers and the communities in which we operate, bringing together two companies with complementary expertise and similar cultures, ambitions and outlooks,” said McAliskey and Lennon.
Cancom employs more than 3,500 people worldwide and has a market presence in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Slovakia, Great Britain and the USA.
