Logicalis seals CSF Solutions deal

Buys integrator, data centre

Logicalis UK has upped its stake in the market for big old iron by snapping up CSF Solutions.

Logicalis, which is part of the South Africa-based Datatec group, said CSF Solutions brought with it strong relationships with IBM and HP, and a “longstanding customer base” including blue chip clients. CSF Solutions, previously a subsidiary of CSF Group, has around 70 staff and will be “integrated” into Logicalis’ UK operations.

Meanwhile, Logicalis said, it will also buy CSF Managed Service’s tier 3 data centre. Datatec said the 10,000 sq ft centre would help it meet “pent-up demand” from its existing customers, particularly on demand infrastructure and hosted apps.

The deal is Logicalis’ fifth European acquisition in the last two years.®
