Posted on 7 Sep 2009 by The Manufacturer

SCH Distribution (SCHd), Europe’s largest independent technology business, has acquired IQ Sys Limited, the distribution market leader with Citrix in the UK.

As part of SCHd, IQ Sys can now extend its reach as part of a premier and established distribution group that has market leading relationships with all the key vendors, including HP, IBM, Sun, and VMware. The combined entity will account for over 60% of UK sales, based on current figures. SCHd will retain and build on the IQ Sys identity, which will trade alongside its other distribution brands.

Sir Peter Rigby, chairman and chief executive, SCH Group plc, said: “The deal forms part of a clear and long standing strategy to evolve the breadth and depth of SCHd’s capability to enable resellers to go to market with the solutions and services demanded by their customers.”
