| 21 November, 2018
ALSO has acquired the value-added distributor (VAD) DISS d.o.o., along with its subsidiaries VAD d.o.o. and Marmis d.o.o. The move makes ALSO the market leader in the field of ICT distribution in Slovenia and helps it further expand its business in eastern Europe.
“The acquisition of DISS allows us to advance our growth strategy in Europe and gives us a broader and sounder basis in key distribution-related business fields than before,” says Gustavo Möller-Hergt, CEO of ALSO Holding AG (SIX: ALSN).
“The expertise and experience gained in the market by the excellent team at DISS over the past 20 years lets us strengthen the areas of infrastructure, software and security in particular.”
The acquisition of Ljubljana-based DISS and its subsidiaries VAD and Marmis gives ALSO access to its resources and expertise in the fields of data centres, security and solutions. DISS markets and sells software and IT equipment from HP and HPE, among other manufacturers. Its subsidiary VAD specialises in IT devices and software from Dell EMC, whereas Marmis markets and sells IBM software for medium-sized and largescale systems for monitoring security and business processes.
