Nycomm Group buys Co-Channel Electronics


Communications supply specialist The Nycomm Group has acquired Bristol-based Co-Channel Electronics for an undisclosed sum.

Co-Channel specialises in two-way radio and wireless communications and serves a range of clients across the West Country.  The deal provides Bury-based communications and data specialist Pennine, which was purchased by Nycomm in December last year, with a new platform.

Co-Channel’s staff and operations will be integrated within Pennine’s national PennineRadio division and its Bristol premises will be retained as a regional technical and sales support hub. All Co-Channel staff are being retained by Pennine, with the exception of former joint owner Teresa Griffiths, who is retiring.

Founder and managing director John Crawford is being retained on a consultancy basis.

“Co-Channel is an excellent fit for our business due both to the respect the business and its staff command for technical excellence and the growth which PennineRadio is already enjoying in the South West,” said Nycomm Group chairman Julian Niman.

Pennine already provides two-way radio installation, supply and maintained contract  services to an array of private and public sector organisations across the country, including the Hinkley Point C construction site.

Manchester-based Nycomm comprises four main brands: Nimans (comms distribution), Rocom (specific corporate end user sales), Videonations (audio visual and video conferencing specialist) and Pennine.
