Onecom Group swoops for communications firm

LDC-backed Onecom Group has acquired a Swindon-based communications company in a deal supported by Moore Barlow.   

The purchase of Excalibur Communications Group will provide Onecom with additional capacity and capability through its team and geographic reach. 

Established in 2002 and headquartered in Whiteley, Onecom employs more than 600 people in offices around the UK, and counts Vodafone, Microsoft, Google, Mitel, Samsung, Apple, Gamma and Five9 as its strategic partners. 

“This is a very exciting transformative period for Excalibur. We’ve built a company that we are incredibly proud of and it’s essential that the sale went as smoothly as possible. We knew that we’d be in safe hands with the Moore Barlow team and that we’d get direct access to their senior team throughout the process. They have a first-rate reputation and a track record within the telecoms sector too. Throughout the sale they kept us informed, kept up momentum and managed the process.”

Peter Boucher, chief executive at Excalibur Communications

“We’ve had a longstanding relationship with Peter and the management team having provided legal counsel for Excalibur’s management buyout in 2018, which underpinned their five-year strategy for growth and subsequently their collaboration with Onecom. It’s been a real pleasure to have worked alongside them and we wish the Excalibur team every success in the next stage of their journey.”
