We are pleased to announce the acquisition of Quantor Scanning in Walsall.
Chaffinch Document has acquired Quantor Scanning Limited in Walsall,. The move secures 15 roles with a view to creating another 15 jobs across the Chaffinch Group within the next two years. We now operate with 28 employees across three sites.
Quantor, founded in 2000, provides specialist scanning services from high volume conversion projects to technical digitisation services. They work across a range of industries including legal, accountancy, construction, engineering and the charitable sector.
Chief Executive Alastair Machin, said: “We are seeing a big increase in enquiries and work for digital transformation solutions, as businesses adapt to the challenging conditions in response to the COVID pandemic. Quantor has a skilled and experienced workforce and the business is an excellent fit with our existing shredding and document management operations. This acquisition provides us with the scale and size of operation we need in scanning and digital conversion to bring in new customers and take on even larger projects. We are excited to see what 2021 brings and have a programme of investment planned to grow all parts of our business. In the short-term we will be focussing on ensuring a smooth integration of Quantor’s operations and workforce into Chaffinch and achieving organic growth across the wider group throughout 2021.
He added: “We are passionate about investing in our workforce, and a core part of Chaffinch is our dynamic culture and team ethic. Promotion and development opportunities have already been created for a number of our existing workforce to help take the business forward.”
Managing Director of Quantor Clive Dunkey who founded the company is now planning to retire: “I have been running Quantor for twenty years now and decided last year that it was time to step down and enjoy retirement. We put the company up for sale and were delighted that Alastair wanted to purchase Quantor as a going concern. It couldn’t have been any better for us – it means Quantor becomes part of an established and fast-growing brand and will continue to operate from the same premises with the same staff, which I am delighted about. I wish our staff and the Chaffinch brand continued success in the future.”
The acquisition of Quantor is the third that Chaffinch has made in the records management sector and marks an entry into the fast-growing digitisation sector.
