Acquisitive VAR Chess Telecom has made its latest purchase after snapping up part of The Telecoms Group's customer base.
Manchester-based reseller The Telecoms Group is Chess' 14th acquisition in two years. Chess has claimed its product portfolio will be of interest to The Telecoms Group customers, most of whom currently subscribe to voice only services. The Telecoms Group will continue to supply to the remainder of its customer base.
David Pollock, chief executive of Chess, said: "Our aim is to be recognised as ‘the choice’ for business voice and data solutions. Chess prides itself on its innovative approach in all aspects of the business and we are an ambitious organisation. We don’t want to just be the best; we want to be known as the only ones who do what we do. We work in a fast moving and dynamic industry and opportunities for growth are constantly being created."
David Wiseman, managing director of The Telecoms Group, said: "We were faced with a number of options and making the best choice was fundamental. It was paramount to us that our customers would continue to receive a high level of service and Chess clearly demonstrated that this was something it will deliver. It is clear that Chess has a strong core culture, in which commitment to excellence, honesty and integrity are core principles."
