CHS Electronics' subsidiary CHS UK Holdings today bought the UK distribution business of Appropriate Technology, including Aptec and Paperlink. Aptec and Paperlink will continue their current main businesses of distribution and services for high-end peripherals, under the name CHS UK Enterprise Systems Distribution. Aptec distributes peripherals for colour and graphics, including scanners, large format plotters, colour laser printers, high-resolution printers, high-end monitors and projectors. Paperlink, bought by Aptec in 1993, is a distributor of DIP, document management/workflow peripherals and software. The two London-based companies will trade under DNS Aptec and DNS Paperlink. Miami-based CHS said the acquisitions would expand its high-end product line. Ali Baghdadi, Aptec UK MD, said: "We anticipate doubling our sales in the first 12 months. CHS is a fast-moving and exciting environment and I am pleased to be part of the organization." ®
