Evesham Technology has bought Mertec, a Welsh-based system builder specialising in server networks design and installation. Terms were undisclosed.

Following the takeover, Evesham is reorganising its business, removing 12 jobs, mostly in management. The jobs of three senior executives will no longer exist. There are no news of job cuts at Mertec, but it does not appear to make commercial sense to have two assembly operations.

Mertec has a useful customer base in Wales and has good experience in building big server installations. This will help Evesham in its quest for custom in the education and local government markets, the company says.

Mertec founder and MD Roy Morgan is to take a seat on the Evesham board and will continue to run Mertec Evesham Technology, as it is now called. Microstore, the Welsh firm's Swansea retail outlet, is to be refitted as an Evesham store. ®
