Computacenter reels in Allnet

Immaterial benefit

Box shifting behemoth Computacenter PLC has acquired Allnet Ltd, the in-premises cabling division of Cable and Wireless.

Computacenter said the acquisition would have no "financial impact" on the firm's turnover, but instead it is hoped the buy-out will lead to steady business growth in converged IP-based networks.

Allnet, which provides support, installation and maintenance to corporate and government clients, has net assets of £6m, according to Computacenter. It currently has 160 staff based in London, Reading, and at customer sites.

Jon Bennett, technology solutions director at Computacenter, said: "We believe the addition of Allnet will give us significant synergies and new opportunities to grow our service business."

Allnet managing director James Steventon described the "union" as "a highly attractive proposition".

In a separate deal, Computacenter also announced it will be the "preferred supplier of LAN services to Cable and Wireless in the UK". ®
