The services arm of Computacenter has acquired Allnet, the network integration and structured cabling company owned by Cable & Wireless.
The profitable firm has been acquired for an undisclosed amount and employs almost 200.
The acquisition is the second major recent acquisition made by Computacenter, after completing the deal to buy services firm Digica.
Kate Hanaghan, an analyst at Ovum, said, “This acquisition sends out a good message. For too long the firm’s services business has tended to live in the shadows of its much larger reselling cousin.
“But with the Digica and Allnet purchases under its belt, the company is deepening its capability and demonstrating how serious services are to its future,”
