Acquisition-hungry reseller Azzurri has completed its 15th purchase in five years.
The firm confirmed this week it has bought voice and data VAR MiTech Group for £14.5m.
Last week Martin St Quinton, chief executive of Azzurri, told CRN that firms playing in just one area of the voice, data, and fixed and mobile spaces are under threat if they do not look towards acquisitions.
“Our product set is broad enough and we are looking to make acquisitions to get a bigger customer base. This is different from a couple of years ago, but we now have the full spectrum of products,” he said.
Keith Humphreys, managing consultant at EuroLAN research, said Azzurri has a clear acquisition strategy to help it remain at the integrator level. “Azzurri is currently a silver Cisco partner and is probably looking towards gold status,” he said.
