Wireless Innovation currently provides satellite solutions for the utilities, marine, aviation and telematics industries in over 100 countries. The company’s close existing partnerships with global market leaders Iridium and Inmarsat has created a robust framework through which Wireless Innovation plans to expand globally and lead the field in rapidly growing, high-tech emerging markets in their sector.
Rock Seven already worked closely with Wireless Innovation on a number of projects, and so the acquisition made perfect sense to both parties. Importantly, the existing team at Rock Seven will continue to manage and grow the businesses, including the original management; Nick Farrell, Richard Searle and Drew Jackson.
Our customers will continue to receive the same high level of service and support from Rock Seven and most importantly they will continue to deal with the same great team they have built relationships with over the years.
By acquiring Rock Seven, Wireless Innovation aims to add significant breadth to the Group’s product and services offering.
Regarding the acquisition, Phil Rouse, Wireless Innovation CTO said, “Rock Seven’s expertise and proven range of products, including RockAIR, RockSTAR and RockFLEET, will enable the Wireless Innovation Group to provide clients with a truly end-to-end, M2M data communications service. An impressive 200% increase in sales in the last two years, coupled with their client-centric approach, creates an excellent platform for their continued success and the enhancement of the wider Group. This is the first of several anticipated acquisitions and partnerships, backed by Horizon Capital, designed to progress our global expansion. We look forward to announcing other exciting enterprises in due course."
Richard Searle, CTO of Rock Seven said, “We are thrilled to be joining with Wireless Innovation and taking advantage of the exciting opportunities being part of a larger group will bring. Having Horizon Capital’s backing will allow us to continue our innovation and expansion in this rapidly growing market.”
