Westcon-Comstor’s parent company, Datatec Ltd., has completed the sale of the tech distributor’s North America and Latin America business, as well as a minority share in its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia-Pacific (APAC), to SYNNEX.
The new company, Westcon-Comstor Americas, will continue to rely on the existing Westcon-Comstor team to grow the business. Meanwhile, Datatec retains majority shareholder interest in the new Westcon-Comstor International business to serve EMEA and APAC.
“The successful completion of this transaction allows us to continue developing best-in-class programs that accelerate business outcomes for all our partners and better align our resources toward creating new opportunities for growth in the regions we serve together with SYNNEX,” said Jens Montanana, CEO of Datatec and Westcon-Comstor International.
“I’d like to thank the respective boards of directors, shareholders, and all our associates and partners for their support while the transaction was completed,” added Kevin Murai, president and CEO of SYNNEX. “Our combined portfolios will benefit both vendors and solution providers, creating an efficient, powerful IT distribution company capable of delivering the latest technology solutions virtually anywhere in the world.”
