DVS ‘Acquired’ By @MidwichLtd

Andrew Neale

Midwich Group (AIM: MIDW) has acquired a majority stake in Cooper Projects Limited, the parent company of DVS Limited (“DVS”), a UK based distributor of video security products.

Stephen Fenby, Midwich Group Managing Director told us “The acquisition of DVS gives Midwich access to a significant segment of the Security market in which we currently have little presence, and which is expected to grow at around 8% per annum for the next five years. The knowledge and support of the experienced DVS team should help realise new opportunities for our customers in an increasingly converging technology market. Similarly, we believe that much of DVS’s extensive customer base uses or could use our core AV products in their projects”.

Based in Cardiff, DVS was founded in 2003 as a specialist distributor of CCTV and associated video recording technologies, in which it has developed a strong market reputation working primarily with leading global brand HikVision. In recent years, DVS has begun to diversify its portfolio to include complementary technologies, such as access control, intercom, and intruder detection.

DVS provides solutions for trade customers throughout the UK, across key verticals including the corporate, retail and residential markets amongst many others. An extensive range of value-add services are provided to customers by DVS including project design, ongoing technical support, training and the innovative proprietary installer programme which connects end-users with DVS customers in their geographic and technology area.

The existing management team of Tim Goodson (Managing Director), Gavin Dunleavy (Commercial Director) and David Davies (Chief Technology Officer) will maintain a stake in the business and will work with Midwich to grow the business over the coming years.
