Listed Australian IT solutions integrator UXC has merged its three infrastructure units to operate under the UXC Connect banner.
Integ Group, XSI Data Solutions and UXC Connect (formerly Getronics) will become one as of next week, creating a company with projected first-year revenues of $235 million, 1500 customers and 650 staff.
Integ, founded in 2002, last year ranked 37 in the CRN Fast50, with reported sales of $75.5 million and year-on-year growth of nearly 20 percent and 150 staff.
Integ chief executive officer Ian Poole was named to lead the new entity, which he said would become the biggest Australian-owned ICT solutions company in the nation, provided it meets its first-year forecast.
“Our combined strength enables us to service large corporate and government organisations, and we will be particularly appealing to those who want to buy Australian,” Poole said.
UXC Connect provided outsourced, hosted and managed services to on-premises and cloud unified communications and mobile solutions. And it had secure networks, data and storage centre management. Customers could outsource and refine their back office functions to the UXC Business Services Unit.
UXC has built a service-management office to help businesses become more innovative. And it operated professional teams to manage projects, offer finance, marketing and human resources.
UXC shares were up slighlty on light volumes in mid-morning trade.
The CRN Fast50 that recognises Australia's fast-growing resellers kicks off next month.
