Getronics acquire Pomeroy, combining revenue of over $1BN

The partnership will see Getronics expand their workplace transformation services into the North American market, as well as expanding their expertise in infrastructure optimisation, network and data centre services.

The acquisition of Pomeroy was aided by a $815 million financing and recapitalisation transaction.

Chairman and CEO of the 131-year-old firm Getronic, Nana Baffour, said that the new collaboration marks the completion of a goal to become “a billion-dollar company two years earlier than originally planned”.

The aim for a $1 billion turnover by 2020 was made earlier this year along with the appointment of Rogier Bronsgeest as COO back in May.

“With this scale, we are poised to succeed in our ambition to be the preferred partner for our customers in enabling business transformation using the latest technology.”
