Further to the announcement made on May 16, 2013, Swiss Post has now completed the acquisition of Pitney Bowes’ UK and Ireland Management Services Business. This acquisition strengthens the international market presence of Swiss Post Solutions, the Swiss Post Group unit specializing in document management, digitization solutions and business process outsourcing. As part of the transaction, Swiss Post Solutions is now the provider of these services for a list of blue-chip clients based in the UK and the Republic of Ireland from Pitney Bowes.
