Cavan's Cinnte acquired by world leading IT firm
Cinnte founder Daniel Barr said the takeover was a “positive” forward step for the local company, which operates from bases at the Cavan Digital Hub and also Dublin.
Cavan's Cinnte Technologies has been acquired by Calligo, a world-leading IT firm.
The purchase of Cinnte Technologies is the St Helier, Jersey-based Calligo’s eighth acquisition in three years, and follows January 2020’s acquisition of Dublin-based DC Networks and Dublin and Cork based Itomic Voice & Data.
The multi-award winning Cinnte, which specialises in managed IT, cloud and security services, was established in 2010 by local entrepreneur Daniel Barr.
The value of the deal has not been disclosed.
“Cinnte Technologies was an ideal fit for the next step in our Irish expansion, not just in geography, services, shared partners and skillsets, but also in mindsets,” commented Julian Box, Founder & CEO at Calligo.
Mr Barr of Cinnte said the takeover was a “positive” forward step for the local company, which operates from bases at the Cavan Digital Hub and also Dublin.
“It gives our team the opportunity to use their skills to make a far greater impact, and gives our clients access to data services that Cinnte Technologies alone could have never offered. It is a big, positive step forward for everyone involved.”
