APR Telecoms

£100,000 grant from Growing Business Fund to expand premises and buy new equipment.

About APR Telecoms

A telecommunications company based in Wymondham Norfolk, which secured a major grant with the support of New Anglia Growth Hub, has triumphed after being acquired by a multi-award winning national telecoms business.

The company, formerly known as APR Telecoms, installs telephone systems and provides maintenance and support for companies across East Anglia.  

Ambitious Plans

With ambitious plans to expand the business to provide network services in-house, they needed to double the size of their premises and required new vehicles, equipment and sales staff.

A New Anglia Growth Hub Business Adviser helped the company prepare a bid for the Growing Business Fund and they successfully secured major funding of £100,000 to support the company’s growth plans.

As a result of their success, the company was acquired by national telecoms giant  Wavene tin 2018; a respected, provider of telecoms and technology solutions to thousands of businesses across the UK.

Bill Dawson, CEO of Wavenet said

“I am thrilled to have APR Telecoms joining us and look forward to building on the strengths offered by their business.”

The difference this grant has made is that we are now able to bring forward the recruitment process and get the right people in place, much sooner than we could have hoped for without the grant funding.
