GCP support Arrow Business Communications in the acquisition of 360 Solutions Ltd

GCP is delighted to announce that it has supported Arrow with the acquisition of 360 Solutions Ltd, its fifth acquisition since the GCP investment in August 2016.

360 Solutions is a leading provider of Telecoms and IT services to the legal sector and works with a similar set of industry leading suppliers as Arrow. The company has also built up a strong presence in other markets such as online retail, property development and recruitment.

All of the Directors of 360 Solutions will be staying on and will work within the Arrow group, as will the remainder of the 360 Solutions team, ensuring a smooth transition for all of its valued clients.

Oliver Marsden, founder and main shareholder of 360 Solutions, who will remain with the business and will continue to lead a number of key customer relationships, commented, “Having started 360 Solutions with my brother Sam 15 years ago, I am excited to be joining a larger group that shares the same values and approach as I do, I can’t wait to get started”.

360 Solutions has over 400 customers and has deployed a range of solutions covering Unified Communications, Skype for Business, PCI compliant call-recording and IT networking and mobility solutions.

Commenting on the acquisition, CEO of Arrow, Chris Russell said: “This is our second acquisition of 2018 and our largest to date and will significantly enhance Arrow’s legal sector focus. I am delighted that all of the 360 Solutions team will be joining Arrow and I am excited to see what their respective skill sets will bring to the wider team. The acquisition further strengthens Arrow’s presence in the East Midlands and increases our UK wide footprint. We are looking forward to working with the team at 360 Solutions, as they will help to broaden our product portfolio, particular around our Skype for Business and PCI compliant solutions, and will further enhance our Mitel capabilities and the technical skill set of the Arrow Group.”
