Taylor Made Computer Solutions (TMCS) Acquired by Peach Technologies (Peach) to create one of the UK’s leading IT and Communications Service Providers
Together the enhanced group will combine market-leading connectivity, mobile, telephony services and existing IT services from Peach with the extensive IT services, security, backup and disaster recovery solutions from Taylor Made, enabling the group to offer an expanded range of products and services to customers.
The two businesses combined is now one of the largest independently owned IT Managed Service Providers in the UK, with circa 200 employees, a customer base of over 1000 organisations, sales of circa £20m and an impressive technical capability underpinned by strong partnerships with industry leading vendors including, Microsoft, Cisco, VMware, BT, NEC and Ericsson-LG.
Through the acquisition, Peach and TMCS have created a formidable technology and telephony company. Both companies complement each other exceptionally well, providing an enhanced product portfolio, whilst enabling a single point of contact for IT, telephony, and communications services. The ability to access a wide range of services from one solutions provider is something that customers have been demanding since telephony and IT began to converge. Peach and TMCS now have the platform, skills and breadth of skills and services to provide this to its customers.
Darren Scott-Healey, CEO of Peach said: “We’re thrilled to bring together the exceptional skills and first-class services of two market leaders. Both companies are hugely complementary and enhance our ability to provide a one stop shop solution for IT, telephony and communications services. We look forward to using our combined scale to do even more to help our customers grow, succeed and increase profitability”
Nigel Taylor, Founder and Managing Director at TMCS said: “It is amazing to reflect on how far we have come since Aly and I started Taylor Made 24 years ago from our family home near Fareham. Our highly skilled and IT passionate people, combined with our tailored approach to providing the correct products and services have been the foundations to creating a successful and highly respected business. By combining forces with Peach we bring together a unique combination of talent that will provide an even bigger benefit for our customers and partners”
The joint directors and management team will lead the enhanced group with TMCS Founder, Nigel Taylor remaining as a consultant to the board of directors.
Ian Brown, Chairman of Peach said “The combination of Peach and TMCS marks a transformational step in the evolution of the Peach group to fulfil our aspiration of becoming one of the leading IT and communications providers for small and medium size enterprises throughout the UK. After joining the group as Chairman in January 2017 we quickly identified the massive opportunity generated by the combination of these two businesses and it is very pleasing to make it a reality. We expect to continue to develop the business through strong organic growth and making further complimentary acquisitions in the future.”
