The acquisition will be funded from existing cash reserves and bank facilities. It will take effect on 1 October.

“We’ve been very impressed with Camelon’s business model and its ability to guide business customers into new technologies such as cloud and IP-based communications,” she said in a statement.

Camelon IT founder and managing director Myles McNamara will remain with the company once it becomes the business ICT division of Vita Group.
