Internet service provider iiNet has acquired a 60 per cent stake in Tech2 Group.
Tech2Group provides technical support to home and SMB users as well as home entertainment/AV and home automation services.
The group has three brands — Tech2home, Tech2business and Gizmo. The company has 650 staff and contractors, according to iiNet.
An iiNet statement said that in addition to expanding the ISP's IT support abilities the move would provide "a ready-built home installation capability, particularly in the area of NBN services."
"The partnership with Tech2Group will allow us to both extend our brand and provide a more comprehensive service to our customers, particularly through the delivery of NBN," iiNet's CEO, David Buckingham, said in a statement.
Buckingham said there was a strong cultural alignment between the two companies.
