TRG Expands in Europe with Symec Acquisition

TRG, a global managed service provider focused on enterprise mobility, point of sale and payments has acquired Symec Technologies Limited. Symec, formed in 2009, is a mobile technology solutions and managed services company headquartered in Bristol, United Kingdom with an additional 35,000-square-foot facility in Poznań, Poland. The 72-person team has grown during the past 14 years and has a suite of services that aligns with the U.S.-based TRG.

“Symec has built a reputation as one of the U.K.’s leading mobile device, connectivity and managed service providers,” said TRG President Sean Kennedy. “Bringing this team into the TRG family allows us to significantly expand our U.K. and European operations while providing our customers with more top-tier global offerings.”

TRG established a presence in Europe in 2013 with the launch of a service center in Nijmegen,the Netherlands. In 2019, the company expanded to a facility in Haarlem. The Symec acquisition adds scale and service capabilities in the United Kingdom and throughout Europe.

“Our teams both share a commitment to helping customers adapt to an ever-changing technology landscape,” said Symec Co-Founder Phil Bruce. “We are very much aligned in our approach to managed solutions. I believe customers on both sides of the Atlantic will benefit significantly from this new relationship.”

This is the second major deal of 2023 for TRG, which began the year by acquiring Real World Communications Inc. (RWC), a successful provider of mobile devices and wireless and network solutions in the Canadian market. The RWC acquisition was part of an expansion of TRG’s Canadian operations, including a move to a larger facility in Toronto’s Scarborough district and the launch of an in-house key encryption facility.

With facilities across the United States, Canada and Europe, TRG provides a comprehensive suite of lifecycle management services – offering a one-stop-shop solution agnostic across vendor, lifecycle stage and service.

“As companies continue to become more global and mobile, both the RWC and Symec acquisitions ensure that we continue to lead the future of enterprise technology by providing bold endpoint solutions designed to streamline our customers’ operational efficiency,” Kennedy said.

TRG has more than 10 million devices under management, with more than 5,000 customers.
