ASL Acquires Geerings Digital

UK managed office services supplier Automated Systems Group Ltd (ASL) has announced the acquisition of Ashford, Kent-based Geerings Digital. The move follows its acquisition of print management solutions supplier ICA Digital in February, and brings the number of office machines it contracts out to over 14,000.

 

 

Geerings is the longest standing company in the office services market having been founded in 1903, initially focussing on print. Over the years, Geerings diversified beyond printing to office equipment and supplies and today Geerings supplies printers, photocopiers and managed print services to the commercial and education sectors across the South East in Kent, Essex, London, Sussex and Surrey. It has built its excellent reputation by ensuring highs standards of customer service and commitment to customers and staff alike.

 

Commenting on ASL’s 10th acquisition in nine years, Mark Garius, Managing Director of ASL, said: “Geerings Digital is a long-standing business that has an excellent reputation and has built a loyal customer base in the south of England which adds strength and depth to our coverage in those areas. We chose Geerings Digital carefully because of their fit with ASL – particularly their high standards and commitment to customer service. We are retaining a base in Ashford as we recognise that their strong presence in the area needs to be maintained and grown. ASL are looking at further acquisition opportunities as part of our plan to grow significantly over the coming years.”

 

Will Geering commented: “Geerings made the decision to focus their efforts on our other business areas and after entering a process, we chose ASL as we felt that the company cultures were aligned. The management of Geerings were very keen to ensure that Geerings Digital continued to prosper under the new management whilst still maintaining the excellent customer service that they have become renowned for across all their businesses. We firmly believe that our customers will see positive benefits from the change and will welcome the additional services that the combined group can offer.”

 

Geerings Digital staff will join the ASL team, taking the company’s total turnover to over £27m, headcount to over 140 employees, and it will continue its excellent MPS service, supported by ASL’s additional capabilities. These include a breadth of managed office solutions including telephony/unified communications, production print, IT/software support and supplies. Geerings Digital will also benefit from access to ASL’s market-leading IT infrastructure that ensures delivery of the highest levels of service to all customers.
