The acquisitive new distribution brand that's backed by Rigby Group has made another purchase, this time in Belgium.
Nuvias has acquired security VAD DCB to bolster its presence in the Benelux, where it already operates advanced networking and unified communications practices.
With offices in Veldhoven in the Netherlands and Zaventem in Belgium, DCB shares several vendor franchises in common with Nuvias, including WatchGuard and Kaspersky Lab. It also works with the likes of Trustwave and Centrify.
Nuvias is the recently created distribution brand of Rigby Private Equity, and is based on a trio of acquisitions in the form of security VAD Wick Hill, in July 2015, networking and storage VAD Zycko in December 2015, and unified comms VAD SIPHON the following October. It has since expanded organically into various countries, including Switzerland.
The distributor, which now has offices in 21 countries and revenues of $350m, is phasing out its three constituent brand names in favour of Nuvias Cyber Security, Nuvias Advanced Networking and Nuvias Unified Communications, respectively.
Nuvias CEO Paul Eccleston said: "The Benelux region is very important strategically for us and DCB will become the Cyber Security Practice there, alongside our already established Advanced Networking and Unified Communications Practices. We will be making significant further investments in Benelux in the months ahead, including additional staff."
DCB will continue to operate from the same locations, with managing partners Wim Clinckspoor and Luk de Dobbeleer both staying on, Nuvias said.
Clinckspoor said: "This is a very exciting opportunity for DCB customers, vendor partners and staff. Becoming part of Nuvias, which shares our core beliefs and commitment to technical excellence and high service levels, gives us the resources to grow and develop further in Benelux. It will allow us to take on more high growth vendors looking for pan-EMEA, high value distribution."
