StoneHouse Logic bought by Chess

Clayton le Moors-based IT specialist StoneHouse Logic has been acquired by rapidly-growing tech firm Chess.

StoneHouse Logic

StoneHouse Logic, which was founded in 1998, provides IT systems, services and software. It is recognised by Microsoft as a Gold Certified Partner and a Sage Strategic Business Partner.

Cheshire-based Chess's recent purchases of both StoneHouse Logic and London's Frontier Voice & Data - the latest in a string of more than 100 such acquisitions - adds a further 2,200 customers and £7.2m in revenues.

Mark Hope, StoneHouse Logic managing director, said: "The strong business and cultural synergies between StoneHouse and Chess became apparent early in the sale process and this alignment presents real growth potential. With a great pedigree and a broader portfolio of products and solutions, Chess is the ideal home for our customers and employees – they’re in safe hands with Chess." David Pollock, chess founder and chief executive, added: "We’re delighted to have made these two acquisitions in the space of one month. Frontier and StoneHouse are businesses that have built reputations for quality in their respective markets. Technically and culturally, we see these two acquisitions as a great fit. We are very much looking forward to welcoming their people and their customers to the Chess family."
