Interview: Inside Reunert’s SkyWire acquisition

From left to right, Mondi Hattingh, Andy Openshaw and Jaco Visagie

In this episode of the TechCentral podcast, Duncan McLeod chats to Mondi Hattingh, Jaco Visagie and Andy Openshaw about Reunert’s acquisition, announced this week, of telecommunications specialist SkyWire Technologies.

Hattingh and Visagie, who co-founded SkyWire, talk about the founding of the company, how they built it into a national operator and why they agreed to sell their business to Reunert, while Openshaw — who is CEO of the communications cluster at Reunert — explains how the acquisition will fit into the broader group.

In the podcast, Hattingh and Visagie talk about SkyWire’s focus areas and how the company spotted a gap in providing connectivity in areas that are not well covered by existing operators.

Openshaw then talks about Reunert’s ambitions in the telecoms market and the opportunities that the planned wholesale open-access network might — or might not — offer.

It’s a great podcast. Don’t miss it!
