Jens Montanana, Datatec's CEO

Datatec Limited’s subsidiary Westcon has agreed to acquire Entrada Kommunikations GmbH, a German based, value added distributor of IT security products and provider of sales support and training services.

This acquisition enhances Westcon’s German presence and with Entrada’s Swiss operations, allows Westcon to expand into a new geography to better service its pan-European customers’ needs. The consideration is not disclosed and will be settled entirely in cash from Westcon’s resources, while the transaction is still subject to cartel clearance.

“The acquisition of the second largest security distributor in Germany allows Westcon to significantly penetrate Europe’s biggest economy and gives its European Security division a wider geographic footprint to better service its customers’ requirements.

“Entrada’s complementary vendor portfolio further strengthens Westcon’s security offering in Europe, bringing significant possibilities for cross selling into both customer bases,” says Jens Montanana, Datatec’s CEO.
