Arrow is delighted to announce its acquisition of Inter-Group Communications,

provide further opportunities for growth across all of our product
offerings” says Russell.

stating, “Arrow is a great match with IGC and we are excited to be part of a
larger team with access to an expanded business connectivity portfolio”.

Customers, suppliers and employees of Inter-Group and Budd Communications

Business Communications Limited. Staff will continue to offer local support
to their customer base and will operate from their existing premises.
