North acquired by Livingbridge and pockets Data Techniques

North has been acquired from Aliter by mid-market PE firm Livingbridge in a deal that also saw the IoT firm expanded its UK footprint with the acquisition of network infrastructure company Data Techniques.

North currently employs over 270 staff and is focused on driving regional expansion, strengthening its service lines such as IoT and 5G and continuing to build partnerships with the likes of Aruba, Cisco and Nokia.

Data Techniques has 90 employees located across three UK offices in Camberley, Southampton and Basingstoke.

The acquisition reinforces North’s presence in the south east. 

North CEO Glen Williams (pictured) said: “The last year has seen tremendous change and growth for North and saw five businesses brought together to form an established player well positioned to take advantage of growth opportunities. 

"The acquisition of Data Techniques demonstrates our focus on building our client base and breadth of services through smart expansion and acquisitions."

Livingbridge Partner Matthew Caffrey said: “North has expertise across IoT, networking and connectivity, safety and security, and has clear potential for growth."
