telent is a British radio, telecommunication, and Internet systems installation and services provision company. The company was formed in 2006 from the United Kingdom and German services businesses of Marconi Corporation (formerly General Electric Company) which had not been acquired by Ericsson. Companies with "Marconi" in their name can trace their ultimate origins, through mergers and takeovers, to The Marconi Company Ltd., founded by Guglielmo Marconi in 1897 as The Wireless Telegraph & Signal Company. The company was formed in January 2006 from the UK and German services businesses of Marconi Corporation, following Ericssons acquisition of key assets. In May 2007 telent announced its move from Coventry to Warwick opus 40 business park. In November 2007 telent was purchased by the Pension Corporation; the following month its shares were delisted and telent became a private company.
