Capita acquires Complete Imaging Limited

10 December 2014

Capita has today announced the acquisition of managed print and document technology solutions company, Complete Imaging Limited.

The Birmingham based firm, known as Complete, will join the managed print services arm of Capita Document & Information Services. Around 80 employees will transfer to Capita as part of the deal.

Complete provides end-to-end cost-effective managed print services, from supplying machinery and equipment to online print management software. Its suppliers include Ricoh, Kyocera, Sharp and Samsung, while Complete’s existing clients are organisations such as Money Advice Trust, Kings College Cambridge and South & City College Birmingham.

David Lockie, divisional managing director of Capita Document & Information Services, said: “The business is expanding rapidly and we are going from strength to strength as our portfolio increases under direction from Alpesh Unalkat, managing director of managed print services. We are successfully pushing ahead with our strategy to grow apace and to seamlessly integrate all our businesses.

“Complete is a well-respected company with over 30 years’ experience in the print and document management business. Capita will build on that excellent reputation while continuing to deliver cost-effective and first-class end-to-end managed print services.”

Steve Ward, Complete’s managing director, will stay on in his current role. He said: “We have been a strong and solid business for the past 30 years and this move to Capita is a chance for the business to develop further and grow in the future. Capita is in a position to give the business all the support and investment it needs, building on what is clearly a success story with its existing managed print business.”

The acquisition of Complete comes hot on the heels of the recent opening of several large print facilities and warehouses by Capita Document & Information Services. They are a new £17 million, 90,000 sq ft print and distribution facility in Mansfield, a warehouse and distribution facility in Canning Town that is four times bigger than Capita’s previous building and a 177,000 sq ft site for inbound mailing, which boasts digital mailrooms, storage and scanning.
