Independent IT solution companies join forces. Acquisition described as a natural fit.

Maindec announces the acquisition of CSA Waverley to create a broader range of IT services and growth opportunities for both companies. This move combines Maindec’s heritage in high-end IT maintenance and business critical services, with CSA Waverley’s proven ability to deliver complex IT infrastructure projects. The acquisition, which was completed today, has been funded from existing Maindec cash reserves and will take the combined turnover of the two businesses to well over £40m.

Maindec and CSA Waverley have each been operating for over twenty five years. Both have the enviable record of growing revenues in recent years and continue to trade profitably. The enlarged business has a strong balance sheet, with no external debt.

Both companies share a history of client project collaboration, enjoy excellent customer service reputations, and see the acquisition as an opportunity to secure the long term future of the two organisations. Going forward, the businesses will continue to operate as separate brands – with Andrew Boyle remaining as Managing Director of CSA Waverley, reporting to Roger Timms, who becomes Chairman.

“I am delighted to have reached an agreement with Roger and the Maindec board”, commented Andrew Boyle. “This is a natural fit, which gives both companies access to a broader range of services and our increased scale equips us to compete more strongly for new business going forward. It’s the right move for the company, the staff and for me personally”.

Roger Timms echoed these thoughts: “I’ve known and worked with Andrew for many years and we share a similar philosophy. Both companies put a premium on outstanding service for the customer. This acquisition is a sign of great confidence in our joint proposition and will bring exciting new opportunities for our clients, partners and the staff who work here”.
