Focus Group Acquires STL Communications

STL Communications Limited has been acquired by Focus Group, effective from 29 July, 2022.

Focus Group is one of the UK’s leading providers of essential business technology with a vision of connecting communities and creating opportunities in a place that people love to work.  Focus Group deliver innovative technology solutions, so its customers are free to focus all their energy on the important stuff, like growing their business.  With a team of over 750 experts who are passionate in what they do, Focus Group provide over 25,000 businesses with an extensive range of the latest technology solutions across Telecoms, IT, Cyber Security, Connectivity, Mobile and Energy.

STL Communications will continue to operate under its well-regarded brand name for the foreseeable future and the planned investment will provide a springboard for continued success and establish a key regional hub for the group, ultimately paving the way for the group to become the dominant ICT provider in the area.  The acquisition will see founder, Brendon Cross, continuing to consult for the business, and there are plans to invest in the team to fuel further growth.

‘The acquisition by Focus Group represents a fantastic opportunity for all STL customers and staff as the group looks to build on the excellent reputation forged locally over the past twenty-seven years. Rarely are the corporate synergies and cultural alignments as strong as they are with STL and Focus Group and we’re all looking forward to the next exciting stage of the STL story as part of the Focus Group.’  Brendon Cross, Chairman and Founder

“The acquisition of STL is another landmark transaction for Focus Group; Brendon and the business are really highly regarded in the channel, and we’re delighted to welcome them to the group. We have developed a very considered approach to acquisitions over recent years, and carefully target the right businesses off-market, rather than waiting for sellers to come to us. STL has the perfect blend of high quality management, positive culture, long-standing customer relationships, and high levels of organic growth. We worked with Brendon over a number of months to find a transaction that worked for both parties, and we’re delighted with the outcome.”  Ralph Gilbert, Co-founder and Director at Focus Group
