United Living acquires telecoms infrastructure business


United Living has acquired telecoms infrastructure business, Great British Communications Limited (GBC) to expand further within telecoms and 5G

Following a 12-month process, United Living has completed a strategic acquisition of the telecoms infrastructure business, Great British Communications Limited (GBC).

Established in 2012, GBC is a specialist provider of acquisition, design, build, procurement, installation, commissioning, maintenance and repair services to mobile network operators (MNO’s) in the UK.

GBC has played a vital role in the UK’s connectivity, having supported a number of major telecoms rollouts.

‘A platform for further growth’

Neil Armstrong, chair and CEO, said “This acquisition opens up exciting new opportunities for us. It will complement our existing utility infrastructure services and provides us with a platform to further grow within the telecoms space.

“5G is a multi-billion-pound market for the UK and is socially and economically transformative for the communities we serve.

“Artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles and the Internet of Things, to name a few, are all reliant on better connectivity, which 5G helps solution.

“It will also help us decarbonise the economy in-line with our sustainable commitments.

“We welcome the GBC team to United Living and look forward to supporting them as they go from strength to strength.”

GBC’s managing director, Marc Creasy, added: “The two businesses core services will enhance the whole offering currently provided by United Living Group.

“We believe we have found the perfect home for our company to build on our continued success. I look forward to working with the wider United Living Group team.”

United Living will retain the GBC brand identity, with existing contracts and on-going service commitments being unaffected.
