Harris Technology has made its first acquisition since joining the Coles Myer fold.
It has purchased North Sydney-based Portable Computer Systems (PCS)from retiring owner and managing director, John Clarke, for an undisclosed sum.
The business, which specialises in Toshiba products, was established in 1988.
PCS would continue to operate as a standalone business “for the foreseeable future”, Harris Technology marketing manager, Ivan Baric, said.
Longtime staff member, Nancie Horne, will stay at the helm as general manager.
"PCS' award-winning ProCare service centre and corporate and government client base complements the already extensive operations of Harris Technology throughout Australia and will contribute towards our growth strategy,” Harris Technology managing director, David Foster, said.
Clarke welcomed the acquisition by Harris Technology: “Through becoming a part of Harris Technology we have the opportunity to add value to both companies and to the offerings that we bring to our customers."
Harris Technology now employs more than 300 staff across NSW, Victoria, Queensland, Perth and the ACT.
