The software firm AMCS Group, based in Limmerick, Ireland, has acquired The Solution Works (TSW), based in the United Kingdom. TSW has been a long-term partner for AMCS.

AMCS specializes in the supply of IT, management and tracking solutions for the recycling and environmental management sectors. It has introduced a “pay-by-weight” and on-vehicle technology that the company says has significantly reduced the amount of waste going to landfill and encouraged more recycling.

According to statements from the two companies, the combined expertise of the merged companies will result in the ability to deliver a one-stop-shop for customers' digital needs in the recycling and waste industry.

Andrews McKelvie, TSW founding partner and AMCS’ new director of custom solutions, says, "In terms of day-to-day operations it will be business as usual, except that we will have increased capacity, greater capabilities and a wider pool of products, placing us in a much stronger position to achieve rapid and sustainable growth in the years to come. All existing TSW personnel have transferred to AMCS, and we continue to operate from our offices in Greenock, Ireland. The strategy of the new business is one of high growth, and the skills and experience of the TSW workforce are an integral part of that strategy."

“The acquisition, which is a first for AMCS, is a major milestone in the international expansion and development of the company,” says Jimmy Martin, CEO of AMCS.

“The Solution Works has an impressive track record and experience in software development and deployment. The core technology of TSW – the Elemos/Wims software, is the leading solution in our vertical market.

“The acquisition will significantly enhance our capabilities to develop innovative and integrated end-to-end software and hardware systems that maximize efficiencies and profitability for our clients and help them meet their recycling targets,” Martin adds.
