RSS Simoco Merges with Systems Integrator to Form Simoco Wireless Solutions


Simoco Group merged with systems integrator affini under the Simoco Wireless Solutions name.

The two companies, both part of Team Telecom Group (TTG), will combine operations as one business, offering complete wireless communications services from initial consultancy and design to build and integration to post-deployment maintenance, support and managed services.

Simoco Group’s 60-year heritage in mobile radio will be matched with affini’s expertise in delivering consultancy-led services and managing communications infrastructure at 18 of the United Kingdom’s international airports.

Simoco Wireless Solutions, which will continue to maintain its current presence in the Americas market, will focus on unifying increasingly complex communications channels and technologies across networks capable of delivering mission=critical reliability. This will involve a vendor and technology agnostic approach that aims to give organizations the technology they need to support their operational requirements.

This consolidation will enable Simoco Wireless Solutions to build a strong presence across a range of markets, including utilities, transport, aviation, government/infrastructure and public safety. The company will provide a technology-agnostic approach, aimed at helping customers manage increasingly complex communication challenges with bespoke systems and services. The merger will increase the range of solutions available to customers, including telemetry and telematics networks, a statement said.

Mike Norfield as group CEO and Peter Burridge as chairman will lead Simoco Wireless Solutions. Ian Carr serves as chief operating officer (COO), Phil Williams is chief commercial officer, and Andy Woodhall is chief sales officer. Brett McInnes is CEO of Simoco Australasia, and Alison Young serves as head of consult.

“The launch of Simoco Wireless Solutions marks an exciting new chapter in our history,” Norfield said. “The concept of consult, build, operate has always been at the heart of our approach, underpinning a commitment to taking a lead from customers’ precise requirements and supporting them through their full communications lifecycle. As such, combining the expertise and experience of these highly specialized companies in a single business was the logical next step.
