ComputerCorp acquires Canberra supplier

ComputerCorp has continued its aggressive acquisition charge, acquiring Canberra-based hardware and services supplier, CES Computers.

It is the company's second buy in six months, having bought out Tasmanian IT procurement and services company, Xite, in April.

ComputerCorp already had a presence in the ACT but this acquisition would help it to expand and reach a different part of the market, managing director, Hugh Smith, said.

"We want to focus on government and large organisations because that will open some other doors for us in the ACT," he said. "ComputerCorp is expanding and has a three-year growth plan."

The acquisition is expected to be completed in November and is anticipated to generate a revenue boost of $10 million by the end of next year. The company will retain all 16 CES staff members, taking it to a total headcount of 280.

It also has plans to establish a Darwin presence, which Smith said it hoped to launch by the end of the financial year.

"Darwin is my next priority because of the opportunities that are on offer to expand the company," he said. "The challenge will be with getting someone in at the right level that provides good local services."

Smith said the company currently doesn't have any further acquisitions on the radar but would still be interested in any good opportunities that surfaced.
