Award-winning Kent business, Astro Communications, has announced bold plans to further build on their current success and pave the way for future growth by creating the Astro Technology Group Ltd. The new Group will be comprised of the three core businesses; Astro Communications Ltd, Astro IT Solutions Ltd and Astro Network Services Ltd.
Steve Hodges, Managing Director said; “The formation of The Astro Technology Group presents an exciting opportunity for future endeavours. We are now braced and ready for expansion, both on home shores and internationally. The Group structure allows for us to have the flexibility to explore more options while remaining customer-focused – something which is of the utmost importance to all at Astro”.
The move will see some important changes to the leadership team. The new leadership structure sees Adam Crocker-White and Dean Bruce progress from their current Head of Department roles to Director of Operations and Delivery and Director of Technical Architecture respectively. They will be taking more responsibility for strategic delivery and decision-making within the organisation.
