Private equity backed WHP Telecoms has acquired rival Redhall Network Solutions from SME fund Enact.
Redhall Networks is a service provider to the mobile telecommunications and broadcast sectors providing service, maintenance and upgrade of the mobile phone infrastructure and the commissioning and integration of 2, 3, 4 and 5G networks.
Based near Chesterfield, Derbyshire, the business employs highly skilled engineers who provide specialist services to the Mobile Network Operators and telephony infrastructure providers.
Enact acquired Redhall in 2019 following the insolvency of its parent company Redhall Group Plc, supporting the MBO by the founding management team of Gavin and Simon Rabbitt.
Headquartered in Warrington with seven offices and workforce of around 700 people, WHP provides infrastructure support and deployment services to the UK telecommunications industry.
Equistone Partners Europe completed the management buyout of WHP in 2018 and set out a strategy to grow organically and through strategic acquisitions.
