In a move which will further strengthen its UK presence in the ID card sector, Digital ID has acquired Essentra Security, a trading division of Essentra Components.

Essentra Security has developed an established reputation in the industry and holds a portfolio of strategic manufacturer relations.

South Manchester-based Digital ID saw potential in Oxford-based Essentra Security’s specialist industry knowledge and technical expertise and recognised the benefit of joining both companies’ systems.

“Essentra has an excellent reputation in the industry, an impressive team of staff and loyal client base,” says Jonathan Fell, managing director of the Digital ID group. “This acquisition enables the Digital ID Group to evolve its growth strategy to enhance the organic growth we have achieved already this year, and I very much look forward to working with the Essentra team.

Fell adds: “We now have a real wealth of passion and experience in every department within the business, and I’m looking forward to the journey over the next few years.”

As a result of the acquisition, Essentra Security staff will remain at its Oxfordshire base without the retention of the Essentra brand. Instead, the company will operate under the Digital ID brand.

Simon Jones, commercial director at Essentra Security, adds: “We can already see a benefit in joining our processes and systems to offer customers a simpler and easier ordering experience.

“Our trade customers can expect our promise of an enhanced ordering portal to come to fruition immediately. On a personal note, I look forward to being part of the Digital ID Group and working with a team of dedicated professionals.”

Digital ID predicts the acquisition of Essentra Security will see the company grow to a £32m turnover firm in 2019.
