Independent IT services business SCC, has acquired Hobs On-Site, the business processing outsource division of the Hobs Group. The new business will be renamed M2 Managed Document Services and sit alongside M2, SCC’s existing specialist Managed Print Services (MPS) business.
M2 was acquired in 2014 by SCC, and the convergence of MPS with IT services has seen continued double-digit growth following this acquisition. The purchase of Hobs On-Site enables the continued convergence, which many customers seek, in both print and document management and will also drive a paper to digital strategy for customers, including cloud-based solutions.
Simon Kelly, Managing Director of Hobs On-Site, will transfer with the acquisition and continue to run the specialist business. The plan is to set a strong growth path, whilst introducing specialist services to both M2 and SCC’s substantial customer base.
John Taylor, CEO of M2 said: “We are delighted to bring Hobs On-Site into the family. They provide a complementary set of services to both our production printing business within M2 and SCCs digital workplace offering. We clearly plan to replicate the growth and customer convergence of specialist services in print and document management, whilst continuing to add specialist services.”
