Excalibur acquires Wiltshire IT firm Devison


Excalibur Communications has boosted its presence in the South West by acquiring the specialist Chippenham-based IT firm Devision, for an undisclosed sum.

Excalibur says it has been looking to expand its IT service since moving to its new headquarters in Swindon ten months ago.

Says James Phipps, CEO at Excalibur: “Like ourselves, Devision provide managed services, where they have a very good reputation. The acquisition brings us new customers in some exciting new sectors, together with highly skilled members of the Devision team.”

Devision was on of Excalibur’s largest competitors in the region, with the acquisition bringing in around 300 new customers for the firm. Excalibur says it will retain all of Devision’s technical staff.

The company has previously acquired fellow Microsoft partners, Bridge Solutions and Emnico Enterprises.

“With Devision, we have again been very careful to gain the right cultural fit,” adds Phipps. “As part of our sustained growth plan, this latest acquisition gives our new and existing customers even more in the way of first class support and services.”
