Established Player Enters Exciting New Phase
Digital Angel Radio Communications Ltd (“DARC”) bought the radio communications business from its previous parent on the 28th February 2013.
The acquisition was led by Business Radio Industry veteran John Grant and other members of senior management from operations and finance.
The business will continue to specialise in the Sales, Service and Hire of Business Radio Solutions, with partner agreements and approvals from Motorola, Kenwood, Vertex and 3M Peltor, amongst others. DARC will focus on supplying quality radio communication solutions and services to its government, oil & gas, petrochemical and commercial customers.
John Grant said: “This deal represents a marvellous opportunity to build on the platform of over 30 years successful trading in Scotland and throughout the UK, also benefiting from a heritage that dates back 90 years. We have great confidence in the business and its people and are well positioned for future growth. We are delighted to have completed this transaction in such a short time frame. The management team at Digital Angel Radio Communications has a strong understanding of their customer’s needs and the many strengths that exist within our business. The acquisition allows us to invest and develop our services even further.”
Private UK ownership is expected to provide improved management focus and funding.
