efex accelerates regional IT capacity with acquisition of BMS
Posted on Feb 3, 2021
Managed technology service provider, EFEX, are excited to announce the acquisition of The BMS Group (BMS) in the Illawarra region of New South Wales.
BMS are a well-established managed service provider, who have partnered with local businesses to improve their technology infrastructure for over 30 years.
The acquisition will increase EFEX’s footprint to now service customers all along the NSW South Coast, with an increased presence in the growth areas of South West Sydney.
EFEX view this acquisition as a perfect fit for the organisation, who are committed to delivering scalable managed technology services for both regional and metro communities across Australia. The current directors of BMS, Shaun Minogue and Jenny Balzarano, will be transitioning into the EFEX leadership team.
The acquisition brings with it an additional branch in Wollongong, along with over 30 skilled employees with a strong reputation for IT implementation and support. This growth will effectively enhance EFEX’s current scale and capacity to support SME’s all over Australia.
“While 2020 did delay our plans, ultimately it cemented our resolve to increase our focus on the importance of delivering relevant & reliable regional IT services,” EFEX Chief Executive, Nick Sheehan, said.
“I’ve been a huge admirer of the BMS business for a protracted period of time, and culturally, BMS is a great fit for EFEX as both teams believe in delivering uncomplicated, down to earth service to their customers.”
“The increase in IT service capacity means we’ll be able to continue to provide our existing customers with tailored technology, while positioning ourselves for further growth in the managed IT sector, Sheehan added.”
For EFEX this is another chapter in their amazing story of growth. Following their acquisition of Cloud Copy Click in Regional Victoria 12-months ago, the business continues to go from strength to strength, with an ongoing desire continue to grow through acquisition in regional Australia, with a strategic goal of having 50 branches by 2023.
