Knights’ Corporate team has supported the shareholders of WAER Systems Limited, a warehouse management solutions business on its sale to Total Specific Solutions (‘TSS’).

With a 20-year heritage, WAER Systems specialises in the development, implementation and support of their WAERlinx Warehouse Management platform. They have supported businesses globally with their solutions across several vertical markets. WAER is headquartered in Lancing, West Sussex with additional operations in Sheffield.

The deal supports Total Specific Solutions’ growth ambitions and whilst WAER is the first WMS software supplier the business has acquired, it is the third acquisition the Dutch headquartered TSS has carried out in the UK.  As part of the deal, WAER will operate as an independent business unit of TSS. 

Knights’ Corporate team was led by Ben Davis who commented: “We’re delighted to have supported Rod Scott, David Snelson and the wider Waer team with their sale to TSS. The combination of two innovative businesses with matching ambitions provides a great platform for continued growth. We wish them every success for the future.”

David Snelson, MD at WAER commented:  “Over the years, we have built a solid software company that delivers added value to our customers in the specific vertical markets we serve. When we were looking for a new owner, we wanted to continue what we created and ensure a vibrant future for our employees and customers. TSS approached us with their ‘Software for Life’ strategy, which fits our needs perfectly. They understand the cultural differences presented by regional markets or specific industries, each needs a dedicated approach.

We look forward to being part of a group that values sharing knowledge and best practices and gaining new insights. We are ready for a fantastic future at TSS.”
