TXO Systems Group acquires MMX Communications

4 June 2019

Great news for both companies and all of our customers

We are excited to announce TXO’s acquisition of UK-based telecom services company, MMX Communications (pictured above).

MMX Communications provide specialist telecom support services which complements TXO’s expertise of supplying multi-vendor telecoms network equipment perfectly. We are very excited to add MMX’s services into our group capabilities. The deal creates a combined business with an annual turnover close to £40 million and 225 employees across a network of six offices in the UK, US, Brazil and Australia. Please see more detail about MMX below.


TXO’s Group CEO, Darren Pearce said:

“The synergies between the two businesses present significant opportunities for continued growth and the acquisition marks the start of a new chapter in TXO’s success story.”

He added:

“Our clients will benefit directly from our expanded services. In MMX we’ve found a professional, well-respected and successful business that has a deep knowledge of the industry and a shared passion for delivering quality. The technical expertise within its team is impressive and its services are complementary to ours, which together bring a new dimension to our customer offer and gives us a unique position in the market. We’re excited about what these new capabilities mean for our customers and the growth of the market.”


Environmental benefits

Separately, both company business models support the circular economy. By working together, we present an even more significant benefit.

TXO is key to the circular economy in the telecoms sector. Through our services we greatly extend the lifetime of telecoms equipment. The asset management services we provide ensure there is a market for used network equipment. Every year, well over half a million telecoms parts are sustainably acquired, redeployed, resold and recycled by TXO. The addition of MMX’s operations, which include repair services, completes the circular economy loop.


Neil Bartlam, MD of MMX Communications comments:

“With its financial backing and scale of operation, TXO is perfectly placed to support MMX’s growth plans and vision for the future. We’re proud to be joining the TXO Group, and this deal accelerates our long-term growth ambitions by becoming part of a leading, global business whose values mirror our own.”


MMX will continue to operate under its well-known brand name as part of the wider TXO Systems Group.
