Truro-based telecoms company Bush Telegraph has gone into liquidation.
Bush Telegraph’s assets have been purchased by Exeter-based IP Office Ltd, which will take control of the collapsed company’s complete customer base.
IP Office MD, Mark Collett, said: “We are pleased to have agreed a contract that we purchase the assets in the form of Bush Telegraph Company’s customer base.
“We will be visiting customers personally to let them know what is happening, and who to call for support. We will talk about how we can help develop their business and they will see much more account management.
“We are delighted to also be taking on Bush Telegraph Company’s three existing engineers so the same engineer will be maintaining their systems.”
Jane Cockcroft, MD of Truro-based telecoms company Datasharp, called the demise of a fellow Cornish business “very sad” and assured customers that a local solution still existed.
“It is always very sad to hear of businesses failing and in particular for the situation customers can be left in regarding the continuity of their business critical services such as calls, lines and telephone systems,” she said.
“We have worked closely with thousands of businesses throughout Cornwall providing and supporting telecommunications and IT solutions for over 30 years.
“As a nationally recognised leader in the industry we are proud to be based in Cornwall and as our multiple customer care awards show we put our customers’ needs first, have 15 local, highly accredited engineers and will be happy to assist any business that now finds themselves without the appropriate level of care.”
