Warrington-based Faraday Forensics has been snapped up by an acquisitive digital forensics group.

Forensic Access, based in Oxfordshire, is a leader in the provision of forensic science and support services to the UK criminal justice system. It previously acquired IntaForensics and Alecto Forensic Services.

Faraday Forensics’s services are used by a range of criminal justice professionals, including law enforcement agencies, the legal profession and private clients. 

“We are delighted to bring Ryan Stokoe, Mark Rigby and the rest of the team Faraday Forensics into the fold,” said Rachel Jansen, CEO of Forensic Access Group. 

“We jointly share the strategy and vision of providing leading support to our valued customers through investment in technology, quality, and innovation. 

“Strengthening and expanding our digital and cell site service offerings, as a response to continued and increased demand, makes the Northern Hub at Warrington a key strategic acquisition. 

“We are looking forward to supporting the Faraday Forensics team in their expansion plans.”

Stokoe, director at Faraday, said: “This acquisition is the next logical step for Faraday after 10 successful years of trading. 

“We are very pleased to have the Forensic Access Group take us into their fold. They are a highly respected company and we very much look forward to working with Rachel, Jon and their team.”
