Maclean acquires BITS

Maclean acquires BITS

IN a further addition to its empire, Maclean Computing has acquired Business IT Support — or BITS, as many call it.

Aside from a move to Maclean’s Union Street premises, there are no other immediate changes to BITS and all jobs remain intact.

Allan Maclean, managing director of Maclean Computing, says the purchase comes at the end of a busy year for his company.

“This is an excellent move for us and will bring Maclean even more mid-market customers. It also gives BITS customers access to a more comprehensive suite of services and support,” he says.

Maclean says it has been an exciting year for his company as it has committed to new products and services including Aftermail, Mobility Solutions and Microsoft CRM.

“2006 is going to be a busy year for Maclean Computing — we have a lot ahead of us.”

BITS is the fifth business Maclean has acquired in recent years and brings the staff total to 50.

In 2003 Maclean acquired Techtonics Group’s Auckland services branch, followed by the purchase of Trimax in 2004. “Although, individually, these have been quite small, the cumulative effect has enabled Maclean to achieve a moderate size and market share.” As for further acquisitions, Maclean says he is looking at opportunities.

Meanwhile BITS director Danny Meadows will retain an overview of his company’s client base to ensure it all stays on track, according to a BITS spokesperson.
