Our History Document

You can count on us.

In our early days, we provided specialist microfilm services to local government, construction and aerospace companies from our premises in Gatwick, West Sussex. We were early UK adopters of digital scanning technology and have been providing scanning services for over 25 years. During that time, we have added document storage services, online document hosting and in more recent times, business process automation.
