Arkphire, which has headquarters in Ireland, has acquired Singapore-based Generic Technologies to support the group’s expansion in the Asia-Pacific market.

Generic is a specialist Apple Authorised Reseller and an Adobe Gold partner with annual turnover of S$9 million.  With the combined resources of both companies, Arkphire can scale their unique service delivery model to meet the needs of the Singapore and Asia Pacific markets with what they describe as a stronger and more comprehensive IT solution offering to existing and new clients.

“Generic Technologies business is a natural fit for our ambition in the Asia Pacific region,” said Chris Ambler, head of Arkphire’s Asia Pacific business. “This latest development will allow us to better support the global requirements of our customers and will enable us to leverage Generic’s existing customer and partner relationships.” 

Ambler noted that the current global pandemic has regrettably created unprecedented business disruption and challenges for all. 

“Arkphire is working hard to play our part in supporting our customers in this difficult time by using our expertise to provide secure and effective technology solutions and services to enable and empower their workforces to work remotely as required,” he added.

Founded in 1992 on the back of growing demand from businesses requiring Apple and Adobe technology and support services, Generic has an established base of customers covering a number of multinational firms, businesses in the digital and creative sector and local SMEs.
