Richard Burke

Business communications group Arrow has acquired Click Networks, for an undisclosed sum.

Based in Glasgow, Click is a leader in the supply of IT managed services and cloud services.

Established in 2005, the company’s excellent reputation has been built by providing its client base with a seamless, leading edge service, which includes IT consultancy, cloud services, security analysis, hosted telephony and connectivity.

Click supports more than 150 businesses with their IT solutions and, as a leading Microsoft Gold Partner, it has migrated in excess of 30,000 assets to the cloud.

The in-house help desk and field engineer teams will expand Arrow’s existing IT team and enable it to provide broader consultancy, support and services across England and Scotland.

Mark Mahaffy, managing director of Click Networks, said: “We were extremely impressed with the professionalism of Arrow and their plan for the future.

“We believe that by being part of the Arrow family, this will allow us to enhance our existing capabilities and further support our clients across the UK.”

Richard Burke, chief executive of Arrow, which has an operation in Newton-le-Willows, said: “It’s great to complete our second IT-related acquisition in recent months and further bolster our capability and Microsoft offering in particular.

“Click Networks is an ideal addition to our group as the company prides itself on its ability to provide flexible and bespoke IT support solutions, just like Arrow. We look forward to welcoming the Click Networks team to Arrow.”

Arrow was assisted on the acquisition by both Kemp Little, led by Deborah Angel, and RSM, led by Rob McCarthy.
