Mode Solutions buys EACS

EACS has been acquired by managed print provider Mode Solutions.

The move is supposed to help the outfit’s push into managed print services.

Cambridgeshire-based EACS is a managed services provider which turned over £23.1 million in its latest financial accounts for the year ending 31 March 2021, down three per cent on the previous year.

Mode Solutions is a print provider, but diversified its business in 2019 through its acquisition of Nix Communications, adding unified comms and networking services to its business.

The outfit now has three sites in the UK, a combined headcount of 200 and a core customer base of nearly 3,000.

Mode Solutions is led by industry veteran Alex Tupman, who became CEO in March 2021.

“An acquisition of this size and quality further demonstrates our growth ambitions and evolution from our heritage, as well as delivering on our strategic objectives to offer a full trifecta of digital services to UK businesses from a single source with a reputation for providing an outstanding customer experience,” Tupman said.

Kevin Timms, chairman and CEO of eacs added: “With companies choosing to accelerate IT outsourcing and digital transformation programmes in the wake of COVID-19, a true single-source supplier with exceptional service delivery will enhance customer experience. We believe Mode will provide the right environment for our customers and staff, particularly given the shared ethos of excellence in customer service.”
