Stanford Marsh Group acquires DOS
Stanford Marsh, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in business this year, has acquired Drawing Office Supplies & Photocopying (South Wales) Ltd. (DOS)
Stanford Marsh primarily purchased DOS in order to cement its presence in South Wales and to boost its technical equipment and consumables sales, while DOS will benefit from being able to offer an enhanced product portfolio, which will include Stanford Marsh’s full gamut of technologies,including CAD software sales, training and support (www.cadspec.co.uk), 3D print (www.smg3d.co.uk) and sign/graphics printers (www.smgg.co.uk),together with traditional wide-format media, ink and printer sales for the CAD/technical market.
Commenting on this recent development, Adrian Painter, Director of Stanford Marsh Group, said: “In common with many of our recent acquisitions, the principals at DOS were looking to retire, yet quite rightly, had concerns over the long-term welfare of their loyal staff. We believe that, thanks to our broad portfolio offering, similar work ethic and team spirit,we can continue the great tradition of DOS, whilst also further building on both the customer and staff experience.”
He added that following the company’sacquisition of Neath-based 3-Ways Design in 2008, Stanford Mash now has offices in both Neath and Bridgend and is thus well placed to support customers throughout the South Wales region with a complete design-office solution.
