Babble doubles with extra Yorkshires and Biscuit

Comms provider Babble has strengthened its presence in Yorkshire and Essex  by completing another double acquisition.

The London-based outfit has acquired Yorkshire Telecom and Biscuit IT, and Basildon-based mobile services provider ADSI.

Biscuit IT has been part of Yorkshire Telecom since 2016 and the joint business serves 390 customers across the north of England in a range of sectors, Babble said.

O2 partner ADSI, meanwhile, serves 4,650 customers across the south-east of England and London with 30,000 O2 mobile connections – making Babble’s mobile division the UK’s second largest O2 dealer, the company claims.

Babble CEO Matt Parker said: “Acquiring Yorkshire Telecom and ADSI is a real win for us. Their customers are exciting, growing businesses with big ambitions and, aside from our own, are some of the most satisfied I’ve ever seen which is a huge credit to them¬†Yorkshire Telecom’s and Biscuit IT’s specialism of comms and cyber and ADSI’s excellent mobile platform are areas where we feel we can add exceptional value for the businesses they serve.”

All staff members from both acquisitions will join the Babble team with Phill Burke, Yorkshire Telecom managing director, and Adrian Spreadborough, ADSI CEO, remaining in a consultancy capacity to ensure a “smooth transition”.
