Exertis acquires Siracom

Exertis, a leading distributor of IT, communication & home entertainment products, has acquired Siracom, a specialist distributor of wireless technology products and services.

Siracom supplies a wide range of third party branded wireless infrastructure and security products to over 1000 partners across the UK.  The business employs 15 staff at its offices in Basingstoke.

Exertis is one of Europe’s largest and fastest growing technology distribution and specialist service providers. We partner with 350 global technology brands and over 22,850 resellers and retailers across Europe.

The addition of Siracom to our Enterprise offering demonstrates the commitment we have to grow this evolving part of the Exertis business. This is an excellent strategic fit to our commercial offering to the channel, which now encompasses Server, Storage, Networking, UC, Security and Wireless Networking whilst being complimented by our Service wrap giving the reseller an opportunity to work with us on numerous technologies.

The customer bases of the two companies are complementary, combined with the expanded market coverage and enhanced portfolio we expect to leverage the synergies across the UK strengthening our Enterprise platform for further growth.

Phil Brown, IT sales & commercial director, UK said “We are delighted with the addition of Siracom to the Exertis business. The hard work begins now as we set about integrating Siracom and their team into our business and continue to deliver the excellent customer service and extensive knowledge & support that customers have been used to.

David Thompson, managing director of Siracom said “The Siracom team has built a great business and a great reputation in the field of wi-fi and wi-fi security. To join with Exertis, its broad market reach and its expertise in logistics and marketing is a compelling proposition. I am confident that this fantastic combination will lead to accelerated growth and a wonderful future for all stakeholders”
