Onecom, which provides business communications technology and cloud services, has made its first acquisition of 2023 by purchasing IMS Technology Services Limited, a Stourbridge-based Microsoft partner, which has more than 600 customers.

The acquisition is Onecom’s ninth since 2019.

Onecom was advised by Shoosmiths and HMT Transaction Support while IMS Technology Communications Ltd was advised by Thursfields Legal Limited.

Martin Flick, Onecom Group CEO, said: “As we continue to grow and broaden our portfolio of IT services, we are delighted to welcome the IMS Technology team and customers to Onecom in a move that further supports our mission to build on and extend our geographic presence and technical capabilities.

“The economic uncertainty and accelerating convergence of communications and IT technologies will increase the dependency for UK businesses to rely upon on the expertise of specialist suppliers such as Onecom.”

Martin added: “IT services and communications tools should no longer be sourced independently if cost and operational effectiveness are to be achieved. Onecom’s proposition is designed to help our customers navigate the challenges of the economy and leverage evolving technologies to deliver operational efficiency, technical innovation, and high staff productivity.”

Peter Arundal, Founder of IMS Technology, said: “We are really excited about becoming part of the Onecom Group and the benefits it will provide to our customers and people. Having a shared vision of using our vast experience and expertise to deliver exceptional outcomes for our clients was very important to us.

“The success of IMS Technology is a credit to the whole team’s positive attitude and hard work. I very much look forward to seeing the team continuing to excel as part of the larger group.”
