The UK’s leading independent supplier of mailroom technology, The Mailing Room (TMR) of Bury, Greater Manchester, has expanded its user base by 40% with the acquisition of Dunstable-based Digital Post Solutions (DPS).
The largest corporate acquisition in TMR’s 21-year history increases its customer base to 7,500 accounts, strengthens its presence within the Home Counties and M25 corridor and gives it more in-depth knowledge of automated folder-inserter systems.
To help with the integration of the two companies, DPS co-founder Mark Steele will be joining TMR along with fellow director James Johnson, Operations Manager Peter Thompson and Account Manager David Smith. Co-founder Terry Smart is to retire.
TMR provides public, private and voluntary sector organisations with a portfolio of mailroom supplies and services, including an online sales operation (for consumables, spares and accessories), nationwide equipment installation, licensed inspection, servicing and repair.
TMR Group MD Ian Davidson said: “Although digital substitution of letters and cards has impacted the domestic postal market, the business sector is holding up well. Mail is seen as a medium of authority in the business world, for circulating invoices, membership drives, electoral notices, confidential healthcare information and the like, while commercial emails have been hampered by GDPR and the need to obtain consent.”
He added: “Today’s mailroom technology, including the latest all-in-one solutions, has a lot to offer busy organisations and we can install the latest equipment, keep it operating smoothly and supply the essential inks, labels and spares.”
The TMR product range includes Mailmark-enabled franking machines from Pitney Bowes and Quadient (the new name for Neopost); folder-inserters; and automated parcel shipping solutions that take the guesswork out of parcel and package shipping, with access to the best possible delivery rates. 0800 019 2033
