Expansion brings purchase of IT firm.

WARWICK communications business Infinite UK has snapped up an IT firm as part of its plans for expansion.

Bosses have bought out Alcester-based IT hardware firm Prism, which helps set up computer networks and has clients which include Cisco, Extreme, 3Com and Nortel.

Oscar Vickerman, Infinite's founder, said: "We worked closely together for some time before the deal was finalised, and we know we fit together perfectly.

"There is a definite need for clients to have a collaborative partnership with a single point of contact."

He said the acquisition meant Infinite could offer smaller businesses a level of service which many bosses mistakenly thought could only be afforded by multi-national corporations.

Although Infinite counts big names such as Initial, Rentokil, and Birmingham International Airport among its customers, Mr Vickerman is now keen to target small to medium-sized firms.

Prism's founder, Tony Rawlins, has now joined Infinite as a partner.
