Ingram Micro unites Europe

Back office together at last

Ingram Micro Europe is bringing together back office functions for all its European businesses to save money and improve efficiency.

Ingram Micro Pan-European Group will provide services for three businesses - Ingram Micro Components Europe, Ingram Micro Networking Services and Ingram Micro Supplies Europe. The three businesses will continue to work as normal but should benefit from reduced costs for back office functions. The three divisions will continue to trade under their existing names and logos.

Hans Koppen, president of Ingram Micro Europe, said: "The formation of our new pan-European group is part of Ingram Micro's overall effort to optimise processes and reduce costs. It is an important step in the further development of our central business model that we have already very successfully in place for components products for many years."

The new division will deal with functions like finance, logisitics, procurement, purchasing and warehousing.

Rainer Kozlik will run the new division, reporting directly to Hans Koppen. He was previously vice president of Ingram Micro Components Europe. ®
