Worldpay and Vantiv combine forces
We are delighted to announce that as of 16 January 2018, Worldpay and Vantiv Inc., one of the leading payment processers in the US, merged, creating a leading payments provider with unique capabilities to help SMEs grow and succeed.
The new company will retain the Worldpay name and its international headquarters will be in London. We will continue to serve over 280,000 UK and Ireland customers from our Customer Support Centres in Gateshead and Manchester. Combining forces will enable us to process more than 40 billion transactions annually, through more than 300 payment types across 146 countries and 126 currencies. At this time, we’d like to reassure you that offering a reliable and secure payment service for your business will remain our number one priority.
The new Worldpay will offer many exciting new opportunities for our customers and partners, as our newly combined business capabilities and expertise will allow us to do more for our customers than ever before.
Philip Jansen, co-CEO of Worldpay, Inc., said, “The new senior leadership team is in place and has already begun to implement our plan to integrate the two businesses, delivering new value for customers, realising cost synergies and capturing revenue opportunities that will benefit our shareholders. This will be evidenced as Worldpay creates customer-centric innovation at scale, leveraging our combined operations, technology infrastructure and data and analytics capabilities.”
