The IBM partner joins the growing list of resellers that have struck acquisitions this year after picking up Möbius Business Technologies

The consolidation in the reseller channel continues with IBM partner Recarta making a move to add more infrastructure and managed service skills with the acquisition of Möbius Business Technologies.

The deal will give Recarta, an already established IBM partner, the chance to add build some other vendor relationships with Mobius offering senior partner status with Lenovo, HP, Dell, Microsoft and AWS.

The deal also adds more customers to the Recarta base and a chance to push its position as a major supplier of IT infrastructure management solutions.

“Over the last 10 years Möbius Business Technologies has built a reputation for providing excellent IT virtualisation and technical support to a host of world leading brands. The acquisition of Möbius Business Technologies enhances our IT infrastructure and managed service capability into new IT Vendor areas such as HP, AWS, Microsoft & Mimecast.” said Recarta IT managing director, Daren Bland.

Recarta's sales director Toby Harris said that the addition of the new vendor relationships underlined the firm's position as an independent and impartial source of infrastructure advice for customers.

Steve Sexton, managing director of Möbius Business Technologies, which has been running since 2010, said the tie-up would give it the chance to, "combine our enterprise expertise and service capabilities”.

“This is an ideal fit culturally and builds on the service excellence and customer support which is at the heart of both companies. We look forward to introducing our clients to the additional skills and services that Recarta has to offer, including its Hosted & remote managed services, Software Asset Management and deep IBM technical capabilities," he added.

Recarta, which is owned and managed by Bland and Harris, has used acquisition in the past as a way to add customers and skills and picked up Signature Consulting back in the summer of 2017.
