Abzorbing the nation


Newly re-branded mobile and fixed-line service provider Abzorb is, arguably, armed with one of the strongest portfolios in the UK dealer market, and its now ready to go national.

Bradford-based Abzorb comprises four successful telecoms businesses – Vitel Networks, Vitel Systems, Vocal and Protocall – under a single name.

As one, Abzorb now offers complete converged solutions. It can connect businesses to any mobile network and offer a total fixed line service, including setting up office phones systems, broadband, web services and VoIP.

Re-branding the company is the first step of a five-year plan in which the business expects to more than quadruple its current turnover.

It is currently tracking this year at £9 million compared to £6 million last year, and expects these numbers to hit between £20-£30 million by 2013.

Abzorb currently has in excess of 1,500 separate businesses on its books, including P&O Ferries and banking and insurance group HBOS.
