DOS, based in Essex, has now become part of the Automated Systems Ltd (ASL) Group of companies. Established 21 years ago, DOS is a successful MPS dealership, based in Thurrock, providing document management solutions to over 300 businesses in London & the South East.
Commenting on ASL’s 7th acquisition in 5 years, Mark Garius, Managing Director of ASL, said: “DOS have a built a strong and loyal customer base in the south of England and they will add strength and depth to our coverage in those areas. We have made this acquisition as part of our on-going plans for growth and expansion, and we chose DOS carefully because their high standards and commitment to customer service match those of ASL. We are retaining their Essex office and staff as we recognise that their strong presence in the area needs to be maintained and grown.”
DOS’s owner and ten staff will join the ASL team, taking the company’s total turnover to over £17m, headcount to over 110 employees, and they will continue their excellent MPS service, supported by ALS’s additional capabilities.
