Ireland’s Commtech sold to Arrow

Arrow Electronics has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Commtech, a value-added distributor specialising in infrastructure and security solutions for an undisclosed fee.

Commtech celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and currently operates in the UK and Ireland from offices in London, Belfast and headquarters in Dublin where it was founded in 1997.

It deals with more than 20 global vendors, including Dell EMC, Nexsan, SolarWinds, StorageCraft, Quest and Rubrik. With a focus on the enterprise data centre, Commtech says it specialises in solutions for the rapidly moving private and hybrid cloud environments.

The acquisition is subject to regulatory approvals and is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2017.
