UK DataKom and Pinnacle ISP Merger Creates £10m Business

Friday, December 6th, 2019 (2:28 pm) - Score 660

Independent UK communications and broadband providers DataKom and Pinnacle (Pinnacle Telecom) have this week merged to create a £10 million business, as well as one of South Wales’ largest homegrown telephony firms.

The newly-merged business will be backed by the Southern Communications Group, which they say will enable it to have even better buying-power for hardware and technology services. Apparently the newly merged company will also adopt the DataKom branding, while the Pinnacle brand will only be retained for existing clients.

DataKom’s original founder and Managing Director, Jay Ball, will continue to lead the business but he will now be supported by a management team comprising of personnel from both companies; Jenny Scourfield, Mark Barry, Craig Jones, Ben Stevens and Jason Pritchard.

Jay Ball said:

“This is a hugely significant day for us. We have combined two excellent businesses to form a Welsh telecom powerhouse that will offer products and services to help future-proof organisations. By combining these two businesses, not only can we look after organisations across the whole of Wales in a more progressive and technology-focused manner, but we can attract and nurture the best Welsh talent that will enhance careers and improve the digital skills of our people.

The new management team will run the day-to-day business and having personnel from both DataKom and Pinnacle will ensure that all of our clients are looked after whilst the two businesses are seamlessly merged.”

    Great to see another Welsh business gaining success. Congratulations!

  2. Avatar The truth hurts but that's no reason to hide

    Another Welsh business sells out to an English firm. Business is now owned by Southern Telecoms Group. They are trying very hard to pretend they are still Welsh.
