Backbone, like Suntel, provides services in the construction and maintenance of mobile and FTTx networks. Backbone’s main business market is Germany, which accounts for more than 70% of revenues. In the Czech Republic it is a long-term supplier to T Mobile. Backbone’s history, performance, and achievements in recent years, as well as the consolidation of the company’s position – especially in the German market, testify to employing the right strategy at the right time, the entrepreneurial spirit, a managerial approach, and the professional commitment of Backbone’s more than 120 employees.
The founders of Backbone, Mr. Jan Pityha and Mr. Petr Marek, still occupy senior positions in the company’s management.
By combining forces, we will create one of the strongest groups of its kind in Europe. A group operating on the most important projects and having a significant number of installation teams, with strong commercial and organisational management and a large investment potential for the expansion and start-up of other important projects. We will thus be able to set up an even more economical and efficient contract management system.
