“The acquisition of AIMES supports our public sector and enterprise customers and strengthens our portfolio in providing a broad range of collaboration, connectivity, cloud & infrastructure and cyber services. Pescado’s sales focused mentality combined with Arrow’s broad product offering and expertise will significantly enhance our ability to win in the marketplace. These new acquisitions will bring significant benefits to Arrow as we continue along this exciting chapter of further development and expansion.”
Luke Jones, Partner at MML, noted:
“I’d like to welcome Fraser and Jonny from Pescado and Dennis, Richard and Jane from AIMES, and their respective teams, to the Arrow family. This is an exciting time to be part of Arrow as it continues to drive innovation in the business communications space. With these acquisitions, Arrow is even better placed to capture the exciting market opportunity and continue to drive organic growth. Well done to Richard and the team who have delivered these acquisitions concurrently.”
AIMES is a highly accredited, trusted cloud, datacentre and intelligent data solutions provider, which will add significant capability to Arrow’s emerging public sector proposition. Arrow now has an enviable portfolio of managed service capabilities to critical public sector customers across health, local government and social housing.
Pescado specialises in collaboration solutions and also provides a range of cloud and infrastructure solutions. Pescado has a strong sales and commercial capability that will help further accelerate Arrow’s organic growth and enhance the group’s ability to cross and upsell into its customer base.
