Northern Ireland’s Barclay Communications has won two government contracts worth approximately £0.75 million.
Following competitive tender processes, the company won contracts with the Welsh Parliament and the New Forest District Council in Hampshire. In Wales, it will supply and manage hundreds of connections on O2, Vodafone, and EE for Welsh MPs in a two-year deal worth £250,000.
And its three-year Hampshire contract is worth £521,000 and covers over 750 connections, with room for expansion.
Barclay Communication will upgrade the organization’s entire communications hardware while also developing a package to protect the council’s sensitive data.
Britt Megahey, managing director at Barclay Communications, said: “We are delighted to add two more high-profile government contracts to our client portfolio.
“We have consistently invested in our business to ensure our customers are provided with bespoke and innovative communication solutions and as a result, it has allowed us to secure many tender wins for high-profile clients. I am proud to say that over 93% of clients continue to stay with us long after their initial contract term.
“Working with the Welsh Parliament has been a challenge that the Barclay Communications team relished.
“To fulfill the comms requirement for existing and new MPs, the solution had to be delivered within an exceptionally short time frame. We ensured handsets and connectivity were provisioned and onsite, ready for the required completion date.”
He added: “These significant new contracts speak volumes about the investment we have made in the business over recent months and the dedication our staff has to both our customers and our company.”
The contract awards come only two months after the Barclay Group invested £2 million in its landline division, creating 35 new jobs.
The Barclay Group has also undergone a complete rebranding of all of its companies, including a new website, in recent months.
