Press Release

The Kenton Group, a supplier of connectivity products and managed service delivery solutions has acquired the Metrodata brand along with significant assets of the network access company’s operations.

The acquisition brings significant value to customers in many sectors allowing them to extend the life of their assets and realise increased value from their legacy estates. The transaction ensures network planners and administrators continue to have options that enable them to bridge the gap between legacy systems and modern connectivity platforms for years to come.

John Larkin, Managing Director of The Kenton Group, said: “The acquisition of Metrodata secures the ongoing supply of legacy infrastructure technologies for our Telecoms, Transportation and Utility customers and demonstrates our commitment to the sector. Metrodata was a natural fit for the Kenton family as we share the same core values in product innovation, quality, and support. Customers can expect to continue to receive the highest levels of service and support through the Kenton brand.

Paul Ingram, Managing Director of Metrodata, said: “Uniting Kenton and Metrodata makes perfect sense as we both have many years of experience in the design, build, and roll-out of complex connectivity technology solutions. The acquisition offers our joint customers an exciting opportunity to expand and enhance their technological footprints and Metrodata customers will be contacted in the coming weeks to ensure a smooth transition”

“The mutual respect we have built throughout the years, together with our shared values and complementary market vision makes it easy for Metrodata to join The Kenton Group. I shall be working alongside John and his team over the coming months and years to ensure that we remain a relevant and exciting technology problem solver within the group,” he continued.

The Metrodata brand will continue to operate online, social platforms etc, but moving forwards customers will trade with The Kenton Group operating from our main offices in Dartford, Kent.
