Our Story

The Blackbox Group was first established in January 2013. Co-founders Colin and Antony had been running successful businesses for 15 years before creating the company. As business owners and consumers, they recognised the need for a telecoms company that offered uncomplicated and customised solutions with an affordable fixed fee. So, they created one: Blackbox Unified Communications.

Since our inception, we’ve expanded quickly, building a team of dedicated technology and communications professionals. We work with business clients of all sizes across the UK and deliver innovative solutions backed by our leading technology partners. Driven by the values of integrity, trust, honesty, dedication, and professionalism, we strive to make quality telecoms accessible to businesses so that they can achieve their goals.

In addition to Blackbox Unified Communications, the Blackbox Group also includes Blackbox Solutions– a printing company offering unified document solutions for business clients across the UK.
