Business communications provider, Fusion Communications, has expanded into Cornwall as part of its growth plans.

The Staffordshire-based business, which manages the communications for SMEs, is setting up an operation in Liskeard where its director of sales, Aaron Spry, will be relocating after spending 15 years in the Midlands.

Born and raised in Looe, Spry has worked for Fusion since 2014 and is returning to the area to help cater for a sharp increase in demand for the business’ services due to the pandemic, which resulted in a 35% increase in turnover.

The expansion will also initiate a recruitment drive in the region, with a focus on creating new sales and demand generation roles.

Spry said: “I am really excited about my move back to Cornwall and I am grateful for the opportunity to help grow Fusion Communications’ presence in the south west region.

“The move will open up a host of opportunities for the business and our clients, and I am looking forward to building a new team to continue delivering the outstanding support Fusion Communications is known for.”

Oliver Rowe, founder and CEO of Fusion Communications, added: “With the increased demand we have experienced in the south west, it makes sense that this expansion is the next step for the business.

“Having a local presence is key to ensure we deliver the best service for our customers. This is the first of many regional locations we plan to expand into in the next 12 months.”
