Voice and data solutions integrator Integ Communications has launched Integ Cabling, a new division to "complement its existing communications business".
The company, which employs 80 people in five offices across Australia, hopes that the new division will extend its offering to customers, by adding "a basic network infrastructure level to its existing range of communications tools and business applications".
Integ Communications' key customer base includes government and business.
According to Integ CEO Ian Poole, the company's heritage has given it core capabilities in voice, data and IP communications.
"When we were part of equipment-manufacturer Alcatel, providing the cabling infrastructure and services didn't make sense. Now, as an integrator with some 720 customer sites, offering cabling as well as wireless solutions is a logical step," Poole said.
Poole said this move is a "strategic decision aimed at further growing the business around complete communication solutions".
Cabling industry veteran Bruce Hayward has been appointed by Integ to head the division. Hayward has extensive industry experience in certified structured cabling, wireless networks, site preparation and IT power protection solutions and has worked with Telstra, Memorex Telex and NCR.
