Distributor Entatech has confirmed to CRN that it is closing its southern office following the loss of its contract with Fujitsu.
Telford-based Entatech launched the Chessington office in 2013 with a quintet of staff poached from rival Northamber.
The rented office conducted Entatech's enterprise business, which was centred on Fujitsu, a contract it lost this summer following a distribution review at the Japanese vendor.
Affected staff have either been taken on by fellow Fujitsu distributor Exertis or Fujitsu marketing agency Outbound, Entatech managing director Dave Stevinson said.
"Due to the termination of our distribution agreement with Fujitsu, we will close our dedicated Fujitsu Enterprise office in Chessington," he confirmed in a statement.
"I am particularly pleased that we have worked successfully with Fujitsu and their partners to find all the staff new opportunities."
A quick glance at LinkedIn confirms that some of the original Chessington staff, including Dominic Hoskins, Oliver Moorby and Dave Smith, left Entatech around or just over a year ago to join Exertis.
Following the Fujitsu contract loss, Entatech is pooling its focus on four business categories – PC components and gaming, systems and peripherals, software and solutions and networking and connected home – Stevinson reiterated.
