Two acquisitions continue Babble’s strategy to build a UK-wide business with local talent supporting customers nationwide.

UCaaS, CCaaS, Cyber and Mobile Solutions provider, Babble, has announced two new acquisitions as it continues its growth. The deals – Digital Communications Systems Ltd (DCS) and Halo Communications Ltd (Halo) – continue Babble’s strategy of building a national brand with local presence.

Having completed nine acquisitions in the last 12 months, Babble now has a presence across the South Coast, the North-West, the North-East and in Scotland, in addition to the Midlands and London. Babble also continues to see success in its organic growth strategy, with bookings 90% ahead of 2020.

DCS, based in Newcastle, has been a leader in service-led delivery of managed networked services since 1992. Bringing together a broad portfolio of partners and services, the acquisition will further develop Babble’s presence in the North-East of England.

Halo Communications offers voice, data and IT services to small and medium businesses across the UK from its office based in Kilmarnock. The acquisition further strengthens Babble’s presence in Scotland, following the recent acquisition of 8020 in Dumfries.

Matthew Parker, Chief Executive of Babble, said: “In recent months we’ve focused our growth towards the North of England and Scotland. There is outstanding technology talent in these regions, and in Halo Communications and DCS we’ve acquired two business that align perfectly with our goals and ambitions. We’re looking forward to the road ahead, delivering transformational change to even more highly valued customers.”

Brendan Mulvenna, Managing Director of DCS, said: “I’m thrilled with the position that DCS has reached since forming in 1992. The acquisition by Babble is an exciting next step for the business and I look forward to playing my part in Babble’s ambitious plans to be a leading player in the North-East.”

Allan Moffat, Managing Director of Halo Communications Ltd, said: “Becoming a part of a likeminded, exciting, innovative company such as Babble is a fantastic milestone in our journey. I look forward to adding my expertise and local knowledge to Babble’s range of industry-leading talent.”
