In May 2013 we partnered with Custom Communication Systems, then in September 2015 we merged with Astral Specialist Contracts, and now on the 24th March 2016 we have officially merged with The Bridge Networks North (TBNN).
Peter Gordon, Managing Director of The Bridge Networks North commented “This merger is fantastic news for the staff and customers of TBNN; it embeds the well renowned broadcast, RF engineering and project capabilities of TBNN within the wider Virtua organisation. Through this we will collectively be able to offer all customers, including Arqiva, a broader and deeper range of capabilities across the communications markets. TBNN experts will now be able to work seamlessly alongside Virtua people to create an organisation that is greater than the sum of its parts.”
TBNN were a customer of ours and subcontracted some of their work on broadcast and cellular networks to us. Our companies have been talking for some time, trying to find a way to help each other do even better for our customers.
“Alike all our partnerships in the past, we know that this joint venture will make us stronger. We’ve grown our customer base, our skills and our business. We’ve attracted investment from Connection Capital to help us do all that and more but we’re not done, we’re about half way to where we need to be to achieve the first phase of our growth and strength, and of course, that’s just to get us to a position where we can do even more.”
