MICROmega company Turrito Networks has acquired a majority stake in IT support company, Dial-a-Nerd.

The value of the transaction was not disclosed.

Co-managing directors, Colin and Aaron Thornton will remain at the helm of Dial-a-nerd, working alongside the Turrito Networks leadership team of Brian Timperley and Louis Jardim.

The full Dial-a-Nerd staff complement of 65 employees will be retained as part of the acquisition and will take Turrito Networks to just over 100 employees, nationwide.

The retention of the highly skilled and customer centric team at Dial a Nerd was an important element of the acquisition, the group said.

Over the next five years, Turrito Networks and Dial-a-Nerd are planning significant growth, both in terms of footprint and organisational size, as well as breadth and variety of services.

“After almost two decades of providing IT support, we’re ready to take the business to the next level, and this partnership presents some incredible synergies which will benefit our customers and provide the impetus to get there” said Aaron Thornton.
