Secured Mail Purchases DHL’s UK Downstream Access Business

Independent Postal operator Secured Mail, the main partner in Romax’s Downstream Access distribution, has today acquired the Downstream Access (DSA) Division of DHL Global Mail UK Ltd.

The deal increases Secured Mail’s share of the market and confirms its status as one of the major players in the UK postal sector.

Mark Bigley, managing director of Secured Mail, said: “This is a significant acquisition for Secured Mail that clearly signals our ambitions for the future.

“DHL Global Mail UK’s network and national coverage in the Downstream Access market, allied to Secured Mail’s existing services and client-base, creates a significant player in the postal market and cements our position in the marketplace”

This adds increasing strength to Romax’s offering in DSA services as this strategic acquisition offers our existing and future customers access to the most transparent and visible postal operator in the UK.

Secured Mail was founded in 2006 and earlier this month was ranked second on the Sunday Times Fast Track, the list of the UK’s Top 100 fastest-growing private companies. Turnover in 2011 was £48million.

Secured Mail’s head office is in Warrington, with work from Romax distributed to local facilities in Dartford, Kent. The company now employs 205 and clients include Romax, Amazon, Centrica and Southern Water.
