Connectus swoops for tech company

The acquisition completes a hat-trick of recent deals for the Doncaster-based connectivity and business managed services company.

Connectivity and business managed services company Connectus has expanded with an acquisition.

Mango Tech, founded in 2012 and based in Manchester, specialises in the provision of Azure Virtual Desktop, Enterprise Grade Broadband, Teams Phone Services and outsourced CTO services.

The deal is set to further accelerate Connectus' growth in terms of customers, employees and monthly recurring revenues.

It completes a hat-trick of recent deals for the Doncaster-based business. Since 2020, Connectus has acquired YouCloud IT and Cybersity.

This is the first acquisition Connectus has secured since it announced a new revolving funding package with Time Finance earlier this year.

Following the acquisition, Greg Buchanan, founder and managing director of Mango Tech, will become technical director at Connectus. He will be based at Connectus' main Salford Community Stadium office but will work across all regions.


Roy Shelton, chief executive at Connectus, said: "This deal enhances our engineering and technical leadership, and will help swell our customer base across the North West. I am very excited about the acquisition of Mango Tech, and am delighted to welcome Greg to Connectus in the newly formed role as technical director.

"I have been a long-term fan of Greg and his achievements over the years. I feel both the technical and commercial experience Greg brings into this new role will further fuel our growth plan. It will allow us to continue to meet the growing demand for our Connect-Protect-Collaborate IT managed services portfolio."

Greg Buchanan added: "I'm thrilled to be joining Connectus as technical director and I'm looking forward to working closely with both the leadership and engineering teams to help drive forward the company's vision.

"The opportunities that lie ahead are incredibly exciting, and I'll be working hard to help the business achieve its strategic objectives. Whilst the business is excited about the expertise I'm bringing to the table, I'm personally excited by this opportunity to learn from some of the industry's brightest minds."
