Park Place Acquires British IT Firm MCSA Group
Founded in 2015, MCSA was the result of a merger between Maindec Computer Solutions and CSA Waverley. Since then, the company has built its core expertise around hardware maintenance and reselling capabilities. A large portion of its work is within the public sector.
MCSA has six offices across the United Kingdom and employs more than 145 people.
The MCSA Deal
MCSA’s customers will gain access to Park Place Technologies’ predictive remote monitoring service, called ParkView. On the flip side, Park Place Technologies’ customers will benefit from access to more engineers and greater parts inventory, the company asserted.
Chris Adams, president and CEO, Park Place Technologies, commented on the deal:
“MCSA’s heritage of providing end-to-end IT services and solutions, makes them a welcome addition to the Park Place Technologies family. MCSA’s depth of experience supporting the data center infrastructure of customers is highly regarded. With this acquisition of MCSA, Park Place will be the largest TPM in Europe. We look forward to welcoming MCSA’s customers and bringing our award-winning proactive maintenance services and support to MCSA’s customers, while expanding our ability to service current and new customers in the UK.”
Roger Timms, founder and Chairman, MCSA, added:
“We are excited to join the Park Place Technologies family as we combine our enterprise expertise and service capabilities to support customers worldwide. This is an excellent fit and builds on the service excellence and customer support which is at the heart of both companies. This is the right move for MCSA, the staff and for me personally. We look forward to introducing our customers to all of the advanced technologies and maintenance solutions Park Place Technologies has to offer, including its AI-enhanced, remote monitoring service, ParkView.”

This latest deal further extends Park Place’s worldwide presence, the company said.
