Computacenter buys Metrologie

It's the channel sale of the century

Update Computacenter has agreed to buy Metrologie, less than a week after the CHS Electronics subsidiary went on the market. Metrologie will continue to trade under its own name. The UK reseller this morning confirmed the sale from administrators BDO Stoy Hayward, saying more details would be given this afternoon. The deal covers Metrologie's volume distribution arm, which will be used to extend the reach of Computacenter's own distribution business (CCD). Computacenter will also get access to Metrologie's Enterprise Distribution business, which specialises in UNIX, server, consultancy and integration, sources told The Register. Metrologie was put into administration, along with its parent company CHS Electronics Holdings in the UK, earlier this week. This followed the sale of its sister company, CHS Electronics Plc, to rival distributor Northamber. ®
