In quarter 4 of 2015, Firstcom acquired Denmark’s Connection. This was followed by the purchase of the Germany’s , Citec in Quarter 4 2016.
Nortech, Citec and Connection have a large base of PBX customers. Firstcom will offer these clients cloud telephony, SIP trunking, and mobile services .
Jean-Pierre Vandromme, Firstcom Europe’s Group CEO, said: “Sweden is at the forefront of the migration to cloud telephony and the acquisition of Nortech expands our footprint across the Nordics and will expedite the achievement of our goal to cover the whole of the Nordics. We aim to offer our clients a one-stop-shop solution for all their telecommunications services.”
Johan Jarskog of Nortech said: “We see huge potential in sharing products, knowledge and experience and look forward to the opportunity to offer our clients a complete solution, from hardware, SIP Trunks, to next-generation cloud-based unified communications.”
