The acquisition of the businesses and assets of two South East IT support businesses has saved jobs and further strengthened the offering at a prolific Leeds-based telecommunications group.

Northern Telecom has welcomed Kent-based IT support providers, Allteks and Absols to its portfolio, thanks to legal support from Newcastle-based Mincoffs Solicitors.

The businesses will now form part of IT support and security solutions provider, Soda IT – which joined the group in 2021 – with the acquisitions providing a boost to the managed services arm of the business and ensuring continuity for its clients.

This is the latest in a period of sustained growth for the company which included the acquisition of the businesses and assets of Direct Market Services Limited and Limited, and Utility Point Telecoms in recent months.

The addition of Allteks and Absols marks Northern Telecom’s ninth and tenth acquisitions in just five years, with continued growth planned for the future.

Group CEO, Jon Graves, said “Mincoffs’ support has been critical to our growth strategy.

“Getting 10 acquisitions over the line in just a few years is a testament to the hard work put in by Chris and the M&A team”.

Chris Hughes, corporate partner at Mincoffs Solicitors, has worked closely with Northern Telecom for a number of years and said: “It was brilliant to deliver yet another successful deal for Jon Graves and the team.

“Jon has built a group with a reach far beyond a traditional telecom provider and it has been a pleasure to advise the team and watch the business go from strength to strength over the years.

“I have no doubt Northern Telecom has big plans for the future and I look forward to seeing what is next for the group as it continues to go above and beyond for its clients.”

Mincoffs Solicitors has provided expert legal services and advice across the North East and beyond for 75 years.

Alongside corporate and commercial services, the firm’s offering includes real estate, dispute resolution, employment law, licensing and gaming, residential conveyancing, family law and wills, probate and trusts
