Bell Micro to buy German distie
Bell Microproducts is buying MCE, the Munich-based storage distie, chairman Don Bell revealed yesterday.
Speaking at the IT Supply Chain Conference in New York, Bell did not say how much it is shelling out for the $300m t/o business, CRN reports.
Last month, the company announced plans to re-organise its European ops, following a "disappointing ... shortfall in sales and products". Yesterday Bell announced plans to abandon Sweden and expressed his concerns for the UK , the "place where we have the heaviest market share and we have the most exposure".
Yesterday, the company showed off a new badge - EMC Software Group Authorised Technical Support Provider (ATSP) status in 10 European countries. In the UK, support packages are available through Bell's Ideal and PSL divisions. ®
