Ingram Micro buys Tech Data units in Peru and Chile

by Stuart Wilson, Wednesday 18 March 2015

Distribution giant Ingram Micro has displayed its continued appetite for expansion in the fast-growing, high value Latin America channels. Ingram Micro has snapped up the operations of rival distributor Tech Data in Peru and Chile. The deal, which closed on March 16th, is forecast to add annual sales of US$270m to Ingram Micro’s business in the region.

"This acquisition is an excellent complement to our existing operations in Latin America," said Alain Monié, Ingram Micro CEO. "Latin America is consistently one of our top performing regions and the addition of these businesses to our current operations in Peru and Chile further reinforces to our customers and vendors Ingram Micro’s established position and commitment to providing world class, supply-chain and technology services in emerging markets."

The acquisition complements Ingram Micro’s existing operations in Peru and Chile and immediately delivers increased reach and scale in the region, which has consistently been a top performer for the company.

In addition to delivering cost synergies through merger and integration of the two businesses in each country, the acquisition is expected to drive further strong growth in technology solutions, while increasing penetration into additional service opportunities in mobility, supply chain solutions and cloud.
