Kefron, an Irish-owned document and information management company, has acquired Evolution and Lightspeed as part of a €1m investment that will see staff numbers rise by 20.

Staff at both Lightspeed and Evolution will be retained and Kefron aims to employ more than the initial 20 before the end of the year.

Dublin-based Evolution provides integrated software solutions for clients in Ireland and the UK. As part of the acquisition Evolution's managing director, Alistair Thacker, has been appointed as head of technology at Kefron.

Meanwhile at UK-based Lightspeed, directors Adrian Guice and Andrew Forward will continue in their roles in operations and sales respectively.

Paul Kearns, managing director of Kefron, said the acquisition will give the company additional capacity and improves its in-house software skills.
