MBO for Dan network business
Back to being called Paragon
PC assembler Dan Technology has sold its networking installation arm to managers
Dan Network Solutions, bought by Dan three years ago, will call itself Paragon Communications (its former name).
The MBO cost £1 million. It was led by Dan Networks MD Phil Gamble who said: "We work better as part of a separate company than as part of a group. There's a bit of a culture difference."
The network business employs 40 staff and has sales of £4 million.
Paragon will support and install networks for Dan customers for the next year. It will also continue selling Dan workstations. "We prefer to supply Dan kit - it's very good," said Gamble. ®
