Trustmarque Solutions Limited, a provider of technology services and solutions to private and public sector organisations across the UK, has announced that it has acquired Opin Systems Limited, a services and consultancy specialist.
Opin offers a range of services including IT strategy, project management, IT infrastructure, planning and deployment, as well as business continuity and disaster recovery. Opin manages a significant contractor resourcing division providing ad hoc and contracted expertise across a range of technical disciplines.
Opin's founder and managing director Graham Curran said: "I have worked with my team for over twenty years, building a strong reputation, delivering key technology projects into some major customers. Working as a partner with Trustmarque I realised that they were the right organisation to deliver further value to Opin's customers, while giving the Opin team an opportunity to bring our skills and expertise into Trustmarque's offering. It's a great fit."
Trustmarque delivers transformational technology projects, specialising in workforce productivity, commercial assurance, security consolidation and business performance management.
The business currently employs 190 people at three sites, in York, London and Edinburgh. Customers include RBS, Lloyds Banking Group, Sainsbury's and Capita. Public sector clients include the NHS, the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of Justice, National Services Scotland and NHS Wales.
Trustmarque CEO Scott Haddow said, "We are delighted to welcome Opin as a part of the Trustmarque team. We have first-hand experience of working with Opin and were in no doubt that there is a big opportunity here. Opin have a superb reputation in Scotland, but they have long-term customers throughout the UK. I know that with Trustmarque's scale, capabilities and resources, they can build on their successes so far. The combined business will be good news for both sets of customers."
