Benchmark International is pleased to announce the acquisition of St. Neots-based CWL by Marlow-based Atech.
Founded in 1992, CWL provides agile business solutions, including IT security and infrastructure to support digital transformation, focusing on the manufacturing, finance, retail, aerospace, and insurance sectors.
Atech is a leading Microsoft Solutions Partner, delivering complex, multi-platform solutions, cloud services and specialised managed security services to mid-sized enterprises. The acquisition of CWL forms part of Atech’s expansion strategy.
CWL’s founder and managing director, Andy Griffiths, commented: “For over 30 years, CWL has worked hard to build and maintain its reputation whilst providing an outstanding service to its clients. It was essential that any business acquiring CWL would have a similar culture and ethos. From the outset, I have had complete confidence in Ryan and Tim and their vision for both CWL and the team here, which is so important to me. We are looking forward to the next chapter.”
Ryan Langley, CEO of Atech commented: “We are focussed on driving growth by acquisition and continue to build the Atech vision. CWL are an established player and have demonstrated to us that over the years they have built an excellent client base and a high level of expertise. I look forward to working with them.”
Tim George, co-founder at Atech continued: “The CWL mindset is driven by an open and honest approach, with customer success as the focus. Atech’s goal is to support the CWL team to maintain a competitive advantage and continue to build on their achievements. CWL celebrated their 30th anniversary last year and as such bring a wealth of experience to the Atech team. We are looking forward to working alongside such a talented group of people.”
