IT provider picks up £100m-revenue reseller
IT solutions provider Specialist Computer Centres has completed a deal to bolster its market domination.
Birmingham-based SCC has acquired Vohkus, the fifth-largest IT reseller in the UK, which turns-over £100m and has 160 staff.
The acquisition is the first since SCC announced a £300m technology investment programme to propel growth and become Europe’s largest private investor in technology.
Vohkus represents an opportunity for SCC to scale its presence in the UK through Vohkus’ operations in Fareham, as well as gaining a talented and experienced team of professionals.
The corporate team from international law firm, Gowling WLG advised SCC on its acquisition.
James Rigby, SCC CEO, said: “While the nature of Vohkus’ business as a reseller is fairly straightforward, behind the scenes, the company structure was reasonably complex, requiring legal support in several countries”.
