Exertis acquires Hypertec

Distributor Exertis has acquired the Hypertec distribution business, which handles products that include memory, storage, accessories, assistive technology and security.

Hypertec employs 50 staff at its Hungerford headquarters and generated sales of more than £50 million in its 2017 financial year. It is said to have more than 400 customer accounts, which include most of the UK’s top retailers, including resellers serving the enterprise, SMB and public sectors.

Commenting on the move, Exertis UK managing director Paul Bryan (pictured) said: “Hypertec has an excellent track record in the industry and has built strong relationships with its customer base and vendor partners by delivering excellent product supply, service and support. Their own brand product and technology portfolio are in increasing demand in today’s economic environment as users look to extend the life or improve the performance of computing devices and resellers attach accessories to add margin to their sales. We look forward to welcoming the Hypertec team to the Exertis family and continuing their impressive growth.”

At Hypertec, managing director Lianne Denness said, “With Exertis’s resources and appetite for growth across a variety of technologies and geographies, this presents a great opportunity to increase our business with existing and new customers, and to build relationships with new vendor partners. It also provides the chance to support Hypertec’s existing reseller partners on a more pan-European basis with a one-stop solution.”
