Dixons buys Equanet

Folding into PCWB

Dixons Stores Group has bought Equanet, one of the UK's bigger independent resellers, for an undisclosed sum. No jobs cuts are expected, reports CRN, the UK channel magazine.

DSG is already one of the UK's biggest resellers in the SME business market, through its PC World Business division. Equanet, which will become a part of PCWB, will take the company deeper into corporate reselling territory.
