Kelway buys Repton

Reseller consolidation

Kelway has bought fellow London reseller Repton Holdings Plc for an undisclosed sum.

Greg Carlow is staying on as Repton's CEO, and the firm will trade as a division of Kelway.

Repton specialises in enterprise IT and has earned channel badges from IBM, Sun, Cisco and HP. The company brings £40m turnover and 70 staff to the table, to take Kelway's annual sales to £180m. The combined organisation employs 350 staff in seven regional offices, making it comfortably one the UK's biggest channel businesses.

The takeover follows Kelway's acquisition of HP and services house Panacea in February this year.

Kelway was founded in 1990 and claims to be the UK's fastest growing reseller. The firm is aiming for £250m+ turnover within three years.®
