Restore plc, the UK office services provider, acquired Baxter Confidential Limited, a secure shredding and archiving business based in Winchester, Hampshire.
For the 12 months ended 30 April 2017, Baxter’s secure shredding and archiving activities generated revenues of £0.8 million (€0.88 million). The acquisition was funded from Restore’s existing bank facilities.
Charles Skinner, Chief Executive of Restore, commented: “The addition of Baxter Confidential and its site in Winchester broadens Restore Datashred’s customer base in Southern England and strengthens our branch network. It will also provide us with further economies of scale and extend our position as the UK’s second largest provider of secure shredding services.”
Also announced was that Martin Towers has been appointed Non-Executive Director with effect from 1 September 2017.
