Rotherham IT disposal firm upgrades reach with "major" London acquisition
A Yorkshire IT company has announced that it is expanding into London with the acquisition of a Fleet Street data security firm.
S2S Group, an IT disposal specialist based in Rotherham, has confirmed its acquisition of Data Eliminate, which focuses on IT security.
The company said that this marks a “major” expansion as it commits to reducing its carbon footprint by 2050, and added that the acquisition is expected to create new job opportunities.
This follows S2S’ recent £1.5m investment in the purchase of its office and warehouse facility.
Grant Barton, CEO of S2S, commented: “The deal with Data Eliminate Ltd will enhance our London based presence with immediate effect.
“This strengthens the opportunities for Data Eliminate customers and our existing London based clients, to have their redundant equipment processed by S2S; one of the UK’s leading IT Asset Disposal (ITAD) companies.
“Our recent organic growth and profitability has allowed us to look strategically at our needs for the next phase of our development and this expansion fits comfortably into our existing infrastructure, whilst at the same time creating new job opportunities in a number of areas.”
Julian Fraser, director of Data Eliminate, said: “Joining S2S was a clear choice for us because our ethos and business practices are aligned.
“They are accredited by the Ministry of Defence and Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) – just like Data Eliminate Ltd – and are able to provide the high-level of service expected by our customers.
“Data Eliminate has worked closely with S2S on projects for a number of years so we are well aware of S2S’s capabilities as a ‘one stop’ ITAD company and the integrity with which they operate.
“We are delighted to become part of this exciting business and the expanded range of secure ITAD services now available will be a huge benefit to all of our clients.”
