Irwin Mitchell Advises On Deal
UK-based infrastructure and cloud specialist Union Solutions has been acquired by leading managed IT services provider Claranet.
Union represents the latest in a string of technology businesses to be added to the Claranet Group in recent years and will enable Claranet to expand its customer base and service capabilities.
Union employs around 30 staff and has an annual turnover of £10m. It specialises in a range of IT infrastructure and managed service offerings, including infrastructure design, hosting, transition, and migration, with a strong emphasis on high-performing data management and security for large businesses.
Union supports both large on-premises managed solutions, as well as managed solutions on Microsoft Azure Cloud. The founders of Union are staying with the business and will be working to grow Claranet’s hosting services for years to come.
Jason Rabbetts, founder and director at Union Solutions said:
“We are delighted that we have now become part of the Claranet group. Union’s data management services, hyper converged platform skills, and Azure specialism – now coupled with Claranet’s public cloud and private cloud capabilities – brings an incredibly powerful hybrid transformation proposition to our customers and the general market. In today’s rapidly changing hybrid multi-cloud world, specialism in a wide spectrum of skills is essential, and that is what makes this particular union so relevant and exciting.”
