Distributor CHS takes Europe by storm

Microcomputer distributor CHS Electronics has snapped up distribution companies in Italy, Germany and the Netherlands -- just two weeks after it made a similar round of acquisitions in Latin America.

The company this week has said that it is buying:

-- Raphael Informatika Group, the largest microcomputer products distributor in Italy and the only Italian company with an approved Hewlett-Packard channel assembly program. Raphael distributes to 9000 resellers. In 1997, it had sales of $US160 million-- Micro Computer Dos GmbH, a German distributor which has 6000 resellers and 1997 sales of $US143 million, a large portion of which was derived from a private-label computer business-- Micro Computer Dos BV in the Netherlands with sales last year of $US114 million and 2500 resellers. The company also has a large private-label business, buying components and making its own computers.
