The Getronics Family, a group operating under the brands of Getronics, GWA and Connectis, today announced the close of their acquisition of Colt’s managed cloud business and the launch of Managed Cloud Services, a portfolio of cloud solutions designed to help organisations thrive in today’s digital economy.

Furthermore, a long-term strategic partnership has been agreed between the Getronics family and Colt, where the Getronics family will provide Managed Cloud Services to Colt’s customer base and will utilise Colt’s network, voice and data centre capabilities.

The acquired Colt Managed Cloud business, positioned by Gartner as a leader in the European Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud-enabled Managed Hosting for the past three consecutive years, came with around 600 managed cloud customers. These customers are spread across 11 countries, hosted from best-in-class data centres in 12 different European locations.

Getronics has amalgamated this business with its existing cloud business to form a new portfolio of cloud services, known as Managed Cloud Services. Fully integrated into Getronics’ broader portfolio of IT services, it offers customers Workspace as a Service capabilities, whether that be dedicated, shared or public cloud services or a combination of all three all backed by Getronics’ end-to-end managed services.

Mark Cook, Group CEO at Getronics said: “This latest deal is a significant one for Getronics because it reconfirms our continued strategy of growth as well as significantly increases our critical mass in the European cloud market, both in terms of additional customers and capabilities. We welcome our new customers and employees to the Getronics family and are excited to provide a great platform for our mutual continued growth.”

Matthias Täubl, Vice President at AURELIUS, comments: “This is the 6th add-on acquisition to the Getronics family since it was acquired by Aurelius in 2012. It represents the latest step in our sustainable investment in the group, to complement their organic growth. We are delighted with the progress of the group in realising its digital transformation strategy, on the way to becoming the leading independent ICT Managed Services provider in today’s IT services market”

The financial terms of the deal are undisclosed.
