In a bold and highly significant move within the Converged Market Place, Hailsham-based Chalvington Communications Ltd have announced the acquisition of ApexIS ICT Ltd from January 1, and the formation of an IT and Communications Super-Company, housing dedicated divisions for communications, mobiles, it solutions, and network services under the new Chalvington Group moniker.

Adding to an already impressive track record for the provision of high quality products and exceptional attention to detail, the new group is set to hit the ground running with an exciting array of both plug ‘n’ go packages and bespoke solutions ready to be rolled out for organisations of all size and industry.

Asked what the unification of the two companies would bring, operations director Claire Baker replied, “It’s a real leap into the future, not only for us as a business, but for our customer base too. By having these symbiotic working relationships between divisions we will be able to provide an exceptional range of products and services, and really be able to deliver everything under one roof; backed up of course our award winning customer care and engineering teams.”

Echoing Claire’s sentiments, managing director Julie Tindall said, “We just can’t wait to get started. As an organisation with such a strong female presence in the workforce we are quite unusual in our industry, and the benefits we receive from having such a long-standing group of employee’s means that we really are a force to be reckoned with.

“In terms of the local economy, our growth means more job opportunities and we’d love to hear from anyone interested in working with us – particularly our mobile division which in just six months has already doubled in size.”

Just as 2011, the coming year won’t just be about business. With a strong commitment to charitable work; having completed the Three Peaks Challenge for Meningitis Trust back in May, and pledging their support of the Hailsham Jubilee Garden project, the team at Chalvington are thrilled that local Spina bifida and Hydrocephalus charity SASBAH have agreed to be their charity of the year – with a group already planning a tandem sky dive in the spring, and more promised for the following months.

Asked if he could think of a few words to sum up what 2012 is set to be, director Mel Baker responded, “There can only be one – Epic!”
