Put it in the Books: VoIP Supply Officially Sangoma Subsidiary

Change is possibly the only constant in today’s communications landscape. Innovative, cloud-based and VoIP business services create an exciting landscape, riddled with mergers, acquisitions, partnerships and a field vying for more complete portfolio and market share. This week signaled the close to one of said acquisitions, with Sangoma officially closing on its purchase of VoIP Supply LLC.


“We are very pleased to have successfully closed this strategic acquisition as well as the financing that supports it," said David Moore, Chief Financial Officer at Sangoma. “And we are delighted to welcome the staff, customers, and suppliers to the growing Sangoma family.”

The acquisition results in Sangoma gaining a preeminent channel partner in VoIP Supply, in fact, one of North America’s leading IP communications providers, and for the most part it appears leadership will remain the same. Current VoIP Supply President Paula Griffo will continue at her post to ensure continuity, and maintain positive and loyal relationships with employees, customers and suppliers. From the Sangoma side, Griffo will report to Sangoma COO Tony Lewis moving forward.

The firm will function as a Sangoma subsidiary, and continue providing end to end VoIP solutions, as it has for nearly 20 years.

Sangoma, a cloud and on-premises unified communications provider, originally announced the deal on June 20, and it was then when VoIP Supply founder and CEO Ben Sayers waxed poetic. 

“When I started VoIP Supply in 2002,” noted Sayers, “it was with a vision of offering full communications solutions to businesses, by leveraging the growing importance of the internet to provide information and purchase options.  This was at a time when only 5-10 percent of people had broadband access in the US.  Sangoma is one of the few companies in our industry that understands that vision and I’m very pleased to see VoIP Supply become part of a larger, thriving business with more resources, one that is committed to taking excellent care of our loyal customers and our dedicated staff.”

There are no crystal balls to predict the future or a DeLorean to aid in seeing what lies ahead. But, it is certain that this deal is a sign of the times, and certainly stacks Sangoma’s deck a bit.
