After many years of successful cooperation between the two companies, Stafford-based www.epx.co.uk, which provides IT support for small to medium enterprises and public sector organisations, has announced the completion of its merger with IT Systems and Solutions (ITSS), which previously operated from Tittensor.

The combined operation will see increased benefits for all of their customers, including the advantage of a larger IT team and even faster response times.

Both firms have a proven track record in cutting-edge IT support. ITSS was formed in 2000, while EPX Ltd recently celebrated its tenth year of trading. The team of four from ITSS will now join the eleven staff who already work from EPX’s offices in the old Attic Bar, in the Reynolds Centre on Foregate Street in Stafford.

Steve and Jill Seabridge-Chadwick, who founded ITSS, are especially pleased about the wider range of services EPX will now be able to offer.

“We have always looked for ways to meet the rapidly evolving needs of our customers”, said Mrs Seabridge-Chadwick, “and marrying our overall expertise is a logical step that will bring considerable advantages.”

Steve Seabridge-Chadwick, a former BT communications engineer, told us,

“One of our key focusses has always been high-end network management. That is just one aspect of our experience that will boost EPX’s existing offer, whereas EPX’s specialities, such as microwave internet connections to rural or otherwise inaccessible locations, will complement our range of services perfectly.”

EPX Ltd co-director Dan Ellis said,

“With an even wider and deeper range of skills, by combining our strengths we are now better equipped than ever to meet the IT support needs of both small businesses and larger organisations.”
