It has been a time of huge growth here at Communicate ever since we formed in 2012.

As well as organic growth, we’ve grown by acquisition, and in 2016 we acquired our first company, Touchdown Offices, a telecoms business based just outside of York, North Yorkshire.

When we acquired Touchdown, as with every acquisition, it is very important to us to maintain the current relationships and standards the company has built over its operating history. With this in mind, we were delighted to discover Touchdown has historically provided sponsorship to one of their clients – Scarborough & Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team (SRMRT), and are more than happy to ensure the continuity of this commitment.

In September 2017 Touchdown presented the rescue team’s Controller and Public Relations Officer, Ian Hugill, with a cheque for £3,000 which contributed to upgraded equipment costs. By way of reciprocity, SRMRT’s vehicles and clothing carry Touchdown’s logo.

In January of this year, Touchdown changed its name and branding to that of Communicate Technology PLC. This meant a change of signage. Telecoms Commercial Manager Danielle McLeod worked with SRMRT’s Ian Hugill to change the logos to our Communicate branding.

We are proud to say that the vehicles logo change-over is now complete, and Ian has provided some great shots of them sporting their new Communicate livery.

Tony Snaith, Communicate’s CEO, said: "We are pleased to continue supporting the team. Their work is invaluable for both the local community and visitors alike and we think the new branding looks very smart on the SRMRT vehicles.”

Ian Hugill said “Updating equipment is a necessity for the rescue team to ensure we can cope with the vast number of incidents. Communicate’s ongoing support and donations are a huge help towards purchasing new equipment to deliver our ever-demanding workload and we’re pleased we can support them by displaying their branding.”

SRMRT uses Communicate’s Strongest Signal SIM, which offers enhanced mobile communications to clients in poor signal areas.
