Apogee completes acquisition of CityDocs

Managed print specialist continues spending spree with acquisition of London-based CityDocs

Apogee has completed the acquisition of print and digital document specialist CityDocs.

London-based CityDocs delivers a range of digital document scanning, processing, hosting and full reprographic services.

This is the third acquisition by Apogee since it secured a investment from private equity firm Equistone Partners Europe in September. At the start of the year the managed print specialist set out its ambitions to use 2016 as a period for growth. Acquisitions in Wales and Germany earlier in the year have since been followed by Scotland, Ireland and now CityDocs. Apogee said that it will continue to make further strategic acquisitions to drive growth in the UK and Europe in 2017.

Jason Collins, Apogee Joint CEO said: “CityDocs has a fantastic reputation for secure, responsive and expert specialist services all around the digital or paper document and this is perfectly in line with Apogee’s strategy. The quality of service and the 24/7 capabilities the CityDocs operations have to support clients is really impressive, and the new eDisclosure technology is clearly the way forward for all professional services, not just legal. This is a terrific business that Peter Lawson and his team have built and I’m very excited about how we can develop the business further now it is part of the Apogee group.”

Peter Lawson, CityDocs’ Managing Director added: “I’m very proud of what the team at CityDocs have achieved. We have built a great services-focussed company and such good relationships with so many of our clients, we have become the partner they can rely upon. Now it’s time to take what we have to the next level with Apogee. Our clients will have access to more solutions and the impressive scale and power of Apogee’s Managed Services operation, and our specialist digital document services, particularly forensic technology, document processing and eDisclosure will be of great value to Apogee’s existing clients.”
