ICA Digital Ltd, based in Surrey, has now become part of the Automated Systems Ltd (ASL) Group of companies. Established 25 years ago, ICA is a strong and successful MPS reseller, providing document management solutions to over 650 businesses in Surrey, London & the South East.

Commenting on ASL’s 9th acquisition in 9 years, Mark Garius, Managing Director of ASL, said: “ICA is a very strong business that has built a 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 ICA carefully because of their fit with ASL – particularly their high standards and commitment to customer service. We are retaining their Surrey office and staff as we recognise that their strong presence in the area needs to be maintained and grown. In addition, their Managing Director, Simon Whapshott, will join the Board of ASL to further strengthen our capability to grow. ASL are looking at further acquisition opportunities as part of our plan to grow significantly over the coming years.”

ICA’s staff will join the ASL team, taking the company’s total turnover to over £23m, headcount to over 115 employees, and they will continue their excellent Managed Print Solutions service, supported by ASL’s additional capabilities. These include a breadth of managed office solutions including telephony/unified communications, security solutions, IT/software support and supplies. ICA will also benefit from access to ASL’s market-leading IT infrastructure that ensures delivery of the highest levels of service to all customers.

ASL was founded in 1991 and is one of the largest independent reprographics print solution suppliers in the UK. It services 5000 customers in East Anglia, the Midlands, London and the South of England, with offices in Cambridge, Great Yarmouth, Milton Keynes, Cannock, Bromsgrove, Central London, Basildon and Surrey.
