MWL Systems has taken an exciting step this month, and we are very proud to announce that we have been acquired by one of the UK’s leading IT companies, Elite Group.
We began talks with Elite Group a few month ago, and following successful discussions the acquisition was officially announced on 18th June 2019.
In addition to this, our very own Managing Director, Matt Kingsley-Williams, will take on a new role as Group Director of IT Operations, taking pride of place within the Senior Directors team, whilst also continuing his responsibilities in the day to day running and management of MWL Systems.

Specialists in IT, telecoms and unified communications for businesses, Elite Group’s client base spans an astounding 7,500 companies, operating throughout the UK. With offices in Chorley, Lancashire and Madrid, the Group boasts 180 staff and a turnover in excess of £57 million.
The acquisition of MWL Systems will mark the Group’s 17th since 2008. We were, as a business, specifically chosen as a direct result of our team of highly skilled and qualified IT experts, as well as our proven track record of providing a quality service that supports our clients in their efficient running and growth.
How will this affect our clients?
MWL Systems will continue to operate under the MWL name, dual branded with Elite Group. There will be no immediate changes to our client’s contacts within our business, our telephone number, our website, our email addresses or who clients pay invoices to.

- Access to additional products and services
