Scarborough tech firm merges with fast-growing FourNet

One of the UK’s fastest growing tech firms, FourNet, have acquired Scarborough-based IT infrastructure and security company, C>Ways.

Today’s announcement is the latest strategic acquisition by award-winning FourNet which significantly expands its networking and security portfolio. 

Richard Pennington, co-founder and CEO of FourNet, said: “We are delighted to welcome C>Ways to the FourNet family. This acquisition accelerates our ability to deliver on new services already in FourNet’s portfolio.”

The move enhances FourNet’s secure infrastructure offering to customers and will enable the fast-growing cloud, consulting and managed services company to provide security across the entire technology stack.

Richard continued, “as a result of the new working landscape following the pandemic, with remote and hybrid working an everyday feature of life and business, there has been an acceleration of convergence of all aspects of IT and communications.

Founded 24 years ago, C>Ways has 24 employees with a head office in Scarborough, North Yorkshire and an office in Farringdon, London. The business specialises in networking and cybersecurity, cloud and business continuity.

C>Ways was founded by husband and wife, Nick and Andrea Jackson. Nick Jackson, managing director of C>Ways, said: “These are exciting times for C>Ways and we are pleased that the company we founded more than 20 years ago is now part of the FourNet family, which will mean an enhanced service for our existing and new customers.”

FourNet has more than 150 employees, with offices in Manchester, Burton-on-Trent and London. Whitehall departments, local authorities, housing, blue-light and utility companies are among its customers and it is one of the fastest growing privately-owned UK tech companies.
