Kiwi telecommunications solutions provider, Telesmart, has bought the business formerly known as NEC Business Solutions from Scollay Holdings for an undisclosed sum.

Telesmart said the acquisition strengthens its telecommunications engineering skills and complements its existing network, voice and video offerings which are delivered from its five centres in New Zealand and Australia.

“This is an exciting purchase for Telesmart because it firmly positions us as New Zealand’s leading sales and service provider of NEC’s world-leading telecommunications systems,” Telesmart managing director Nigel Barker said.

NEC Business Solutions had been the New Zealand distributor of Japan-based NEC's products for 23 years. NEC is ranked a top-two provider of telecommunications systems globally, Telesmart said.

Barker said Scollay technical specialist and project manager Glenn Van Gorp has been appointed Telesmart’s head of engineering as a result of the buyout.

"Significantly, from a New Zealand perspective, it also reunites the unique team of Mark Simons and Mark Panther – renowned for their ability to qualify and deliver market-leading solutions, often to highly specialised requirements," Barker said.

"The acquisition builds on our ability to offer best-of-breed telecommunications solutions to New Zealand’s most complex organisations. Our team are amongst the country’s most experienced and knowledgeable experts."

Furthermore, Chris Scollay, owner of Scollay Holdings, said Telesmart’s "customer-centric" business philosophy delivered all the attributes he sought when he decided to sell the business. 

“I’m delighted because I’m confident they have the right attributes to ensure NEC Business Solutions’ legacy will live on," he added.
