CFH Docmail Acquires BSS Scotmail Business

CFH Docmail Ltd, the leading provider of hybrid mail in the UK, has acquired the assets of the Glasgow site of BSS Scotland Ltd (also trading as BSS Scotmail) in a deal designed to save jobs and deliver an ongoing service to existing clients.

Glasgow based BSS Scotland provides print and mail services to businesses and public bodies in Scotland, with a turnover of £2.3 million and 39 employees.

CFH Docmail operates in Scotland from a 40,000 sq ft. site in Livingston, which employs 28 people and has a sales turnover of £2.5 million.

CFH Docmail intends that BSS Scotmail will continue continue to provide its current services and will remain as a trading and production unit based in Scotland.

CFH MD Dave Broadway said “It is always sad to see a good business like BSS Scotmail put into this position by factors outside their control. I am pleased that CFH Docmail will be able to ensure that Scotmail continues to serve its Scottish customer base as it has for the last 30 years and that many employee positions will be protected.”

Broadway added: “When a business enters administration, it is important that action is taken quickly to protect customers and jobs. As a highly profitable and cash rich business, CFH Docmail were able to react immediately and fund the purchase out of cashflow.”
