Covid-19 Update

Max are pleased to confirm that our teams are still fully operational, including our on-site locations such as The National Archives and ONS. We do understand, however, that for many businesses and institutions this is unfortunately not the case. We wish you well during this difficult period and look forward to easier times.

If you would like to schedule a call for a future date, please complete our contact form indicating a preferred day. We have decided to freeze our prices until January 1st 2021 to ensure that our customers are not penalised by the current restrictions. We may decide to extend this date further still.

In the meantime, please do take a look at our podcasts page. The passion, enthusiasm and insight from our guest speakers has been inspirational, especially given the circumstances.

Digitisation Services

For more than 20 years Max have specialised in high quality digitisation services. We have developed an understanding of digital production workflows and quality assurance principles that we believe is second to none. In 2016 we were granted the Royal Warrant following a long period of consistently exceeding expectations through the quality of our work. Our ISO9001 accreditation is further testament to the value we deliver to our clients time and again. Often the material we handle is fragile, delicate and irreplaceable. It can also be challenging, requiring expert digitisation techniques and high-end equipment, especially given that protecting the integrity of the original is paramount. For full details please see our digitisation services page.
