This telecoms, cloud and energy provider is putting a £50m warchest from latest private equity backer MML to good use, making two acquisitions in 2020 and five in 2021. In a "robust" trading performance, the Godalming-based Vodafone, Mitel and Microsoft partner saw revenues inch up three per cent to £47.8m in calendar 2020. Most recent purchase Circle IT- a Cardiff-based Dell and Microsoft partner - "completes Arrow's solutions portfolio", CEO Richard Burke said in November.
