Exertis acquires Hypertec Ltd

Exertis has announced its acquisition of Hypertec Ltd, a distributor of third-party as well as own-brand products including memory, storage, accessories, assistive technology, and security. Hypertec employs over 50 staff at its facility in Hungerford and generated sales of over £20 million in FY17, selling to over 400 active customer accounts including some of the UK’s largest resellers.

Paul Bryan, Exertis UK managing director 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.”

Lianne Denness, Hypertec managing director added: “With Exertis’ 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.”
