Headquartered in London, G3 Comms provides communication and connectivity solutions to medium-sized, multi-site UK enterprises, often with international operations.

G3 specialises in supporting customers on their digital transformation journey to a complex hybrid communications estate, as well as running more steady state environments via a managed service offering. In addition, G3’s core network infrastructure provides resilient global voice and data services to customers with business critical connectivity requirements.
Apiary Capital, a UK based private equity firm which closed its maiden fund at £200m in June 2018, are acquiring a majority stake in G3 and will provide additional follow-on funding to enable the company to accelerate its growth both organically and through acquisitions.
Nicki Boyd, Partner at Apiary Capital, said: “G3 Comms has built a platform that is now extremely well-placed to exploit the increasing corporate demand for service providers that can manage the complexity of diverse communications systems. With strong consultancy skills and a comprehensive suite of technical services, G3 Comms is ideally positioned for growth. We are delighted to be backing James and the G3 Comms team.”
James Craven, Manging Director at GCA Altium, added: “G3 is uniquely positioned to offer clients with complex multi-vendor requirements a seamless unified communications experience with strong technical support. We continue to see the UK unified comms sector as an attractive market for investment which remains ripe for consolidation.”
