Esteem buys Scots ACCESS

Sun in the North

Esteem Systems has jacked up its Scottish business by taking over Livingstone-based Sun house ACCESS Computing Ltd.

Yorks-based Esteem said the deal meant it could enhance Access’ existing offering in Scotland. The target company’s turnover should be around £7.5m this year. ACCESS founder and MD John Livingstone will retire from the business.

Analysts Ovum said the deal was not likely to be the last by Esteem, which has steadily improved its performance organically since its MBO in 2004

The companies did not disclose financial details of the buy.®
