ASK4, the fast-growing Bowmark-backed internet solutions provider, has acquired BirchenallHowden Ltd (“BHL”), the Sheffield-based IT support and managed IT services business.

Established in 2006, BHL provides a range of IT services, with a particular focus on call centre operators and multi-site healthcare providers. The company has grown year-on-year since its inception and now employs 29 staff.

ASK4 will merge BHL with its ASK4 Business and ASK4 Datacentres subsidiaries to create ASK4 Integrated Services, which will provide end-to-end managed IT services to existing commercial customers and to ASK4’s large base of customers in the Purpose Built Student Accommodation sector.  The newly-combined subsidiary will be run by BHL’s Neill Birchenall and Philip Howden, with support from the ASK4 Group.

“ASK4 Integrated Services will be uniquely placed to offer a truly integrated solution to both new and existing clients, both in the UK and across Europe” says Neill Birchenall.
