Arrow Business Communications Limited (“Arrow”) continued its expansion with the strategic acquisition of Complete Networks Limited (“Complete Networks”) in March 2021. Keystone Partners advised the vendors of Complete Networks on the sale.

Based in Castle Donnington, Complete Networks is a leading provider of critical and resilient managed wide area and local area network solutions suitable for the emergency services where high availability is essential. The company is particularly successful in the NHS with a number of hospitals and two ambulance services among its customer base.

Arrow specialises in telephony, data, IT and energy solutions for businesses. It offers a diverse product range across hosted and mobile telephony, mobile device management, telephone systems, IT services, voice and data connectivity. The broad portfolio makes Arrow one of a small number of companies in the UK able to provide a full, telecoms, IT energy consultancy and service proposition.

Mike Jones, founder and MD of Complete Networks said:

“We are very excited about joining forces with Arrow. Both companies have a very aligned focus on delivering the highest level of customer experience and delivering leading edge solutions. Utilising our combined expertise will provide a real competitive advantage.”

Commenting on the acquisition, CEO of Arrow, Richard Burke said:

“I’m delighted to welcome the Complete Networks team to Arrow. The business will enable us to expand our foothold in the public sector and NHS in particular. The acquisition positions us perfectly to maximise opportunities within the public health sector as the transition to digitalisation builds momentum in the coming years.”

Adam Rowlands, Partner of Keystone concluded:

“Arrow’s acquisition of Complete Networks brings together two highly complementary businesses that can use their combined resources and expertise to build a strong position in the public healthcare sector.”
