The shareholders of Chandler Communications Limited, Perry Chandler and Joanne Chandler, instructed KBS Corporate with the sale of their business as part of their retirement plans.
The opportunity proved highly popular attracting 123 interested parties and five offers. The ultimate offer came from Intercity Technology. The acquisition forms part of Intercity Technology’s growth via acquisition strategy having previously acquired Imerja.
Perry Chandler, director, and co-founder of Chandler Communications commented: “After thoroughly enjoying the past 36 years, and for very personal reasons, it’s time to hand over the reins. I’ve looked for a company who hold the same important values at their core as I do and have found this in abundance at Intercity.
“It’s fantastic to see two family-owned Midlands businesses coming together but, more importantly, it’s also great news for our customers. They will continue to benefit from working with our experienced communications specialists alongside Intercity’s leading support team. In addition, and most significantly, they will also gain access to a full range of IT services and other products which Intercity offers within its portfolio.”
Andrew Jackson, chief executive of Intercity, said: “Having seen how this well-managed business has grown over the last 30 years, and the care the team put into building long-term partnerships with customers, we recognised the huge synergies between our two organisations.
“We pride ourselves on our high levels of service and ensuring a positive customer experience within every aspect of the business, we measure this continually and will never rest in our pursuit of excellence and market leading customer satisfaction. Chandler is a great fit for Intercity and this deal is an important step in our long-term plan to grow through careful and considered acquisitions.”
