We're pleased to announce that we've made our third acquisition of the year, continuing our growth plans!

We've acquired the Leeds-based digital agency, Blue Mantis, including its clients and employees.

The acquisition of Blue Mantis brings our total team headcount to 36 employees. 

Andy Firth, managing director at Ascensor, said: “This is a strategic opportunity to accelerate the growth of Ascensor, safeguard jobs and provide clients with continuity of service.

“The purchase is a perfect fit for Ascensor. Blue Mantis have been established for 11 years, with a leading position as a developer of bespoke web software for automotive, retail and professional services clients.

“This deal complements our existing digital transformation activities for businesses in these sectors, and adds a raft of like-minded talent to our team.”

He added: “This latest acquisition demonstrates our continued appetite for growth and acquiring businesses which provide a strong strategic fit with our plans, and helps us to continue to grow our highly talented team.”

Martyn Lee, former director of Blue Mantis, now takes on the role of Head of Client Services at Ascensor. He adds: ‘This is a very exciting time for my colleagues and I. Ascensor are very well-established and we’ve admired their work from afar.

“Becoming part of their journey and bringing our expertise and long-established clients with us creates the perfect win-win situation.”

We're really looking forward to building a good relationship with our new clients and growing their businesses with our web solutions and digital marketing activities.
