Mail service providers merge to form The Delivery Group

Next Wave Partners has combined CMS Network (London) and Secured Mail to create The Delivery Group, which will provide mailroom outsourcing and automated downstream access mail and e-commerce logistics services.

Paul Carvell, chairman of The Delivery Group, said: “With Next Wave Partners’ support we will continue to expand our product offering through innovative solutions to our clients’ needs in a fast changing marketplace and will enhance the organic growth opportunities both in the UK and Internationally with further alliances and acquisitions where appropriate.”

Secured Mail and CMS will continue to operate under the same trading names and be run by the same teams. Both businesses will however have access to a broader product range and customer base and look to increase the range of services offered.

Alongside Carvell, the new group’s board will include Michael Owen as chief finance officer, Secured Mail’s CEO, Mark Bigley, and CMS’s CEO, Steve Stokes as well as representatives of Next Wave Partners LLP.
