Commsworld Acquires ECS

As of 1st May 2018, ECS will be become part of the Commsworld Group Scotland’s leading Telecommunications Network Services Providers.

ECS will face no staff losses with the acquisition allowing for an immediate focus on expansion and new business opportunities.

ECS (Edinburgh Computer Services) will be immediately re-branded to Essential Cloud Solutions a name that properly captures the enhanced, nation-wide cloud portfolio across both organisations.

This acquisition is a significant step forward for both businesses and allows Commsworld to now offer a full suite of Cloud, Security and IT services to customers and makes for a completely unique offering within Scotland.

What does this mean for you?

Positive news only.

ECS will still operate as normal, there will be no changes to your current services and as far as contact and support are concerned, please use the existing contact numbers and email.

You will shortly see a name change on our company logo and across our branding but other than that it is business as usual.

It also means that you will have a host of new products and services available to you should you wish to find out more over time as your needs change.

Willie Fairhurst, Managing Director at ECS, said: “With more than 27 years’ experience in Scotland’s digital sector, we of course knew Commsworld’s work well and indeed have a number of mutual clients.

The deal means that our accreditations are brought across to Commsworld to enhance its expertise, while our existing customers will be introduced to the fantastic services it offers.

I’m excited that we’ll now be able to bring top level security, that was previously only available to massive companies, to much smaller Scottish businesses who also require to keep data safe.”

Ricky Nicol, CEO of Commsworld, said: “This is a real game changer for both organisations and offers a host of exciting opportunities.

The acquisition comes from a constant demand from clients for fully integrated digital solutions and means we can offer these enhanced IT skills and Cloud Solutions for our clients.

We can now take our excellent network services to the desktop and add that extra layer of security, simplicity and service for our clients.”
