a360inc, a portfolio company of Knox Capital and a technology and outsourcing solutions provider to the legal and financial services industries, announced the acquisition of Express Notary Services (ENS), a national notary and signing services provider based out of Irvine, California.
Founded in 2003, Express Notary Services provides national notarization and signing services and is one of the larger independent service providers to the real estate and legal marketplaces.

“We have been blessed to have a caring and hard-working staff that has been a tremendous help in getting us to this point. It’s exciting to have our company and leading delivery platform, CloseClear, be chosen by a360inc to assist with expanding their footprint in the closing and settlement services arena,” said Express Notary Services CEO, Henry Davidson. “All of us have worked hard to get here and we are anxious to contribute to a very bright future with the a360inc family.
