DCC Technology has bought both Kerèn, a Dutch AV VAD, and Bconnected, an Irish MSP specialising in enterprise mobile management (EMM) and mobile device management (MDM) services.
The distributor - which trades as Exertis - said its purchase of Kerèn is part of its strategy to deepen its investments in the audiovisual and unified comms markets.
Exertis International MD, Gerry O'Keeffe, said his ambition is for the firm to become "the leading Pro AV/UC distributor, globally".
"We are building expertise and a compelling proposition that resonates with our vendors and our customers to take advantage of a growing market which requires a distributor that can provide a complete solution across AV, UC and networking," he said.
Based in Almere in the Netherlands, Kerèn logged revenues of €16m in its last financial year.
Its headcount of 12 sells to AV system integrators and resellers with solutions from vendors including Philips, LG, Casio, BenQ, Canon, Panasonic, AOPEN, Neets, WyreStorm, Bose and Legrand.
Meanwhile, Irish MSP Bconnect is based in Co. Kildare.
It posted annual revenues of €1.9m for 2018.
The business is set to become part of DCC technology's white label services business, Macro Evolution Services Ltd. (MacroEv).
"Bconnected is a respected and trusted partner for providing EMM and MDM services in Ireland," Rod McCarthy, managing director, Exertis Ireland said.
"This acquisition will enable us to offer and develop a range of end-point management support services for resellers and vendors as well as a greater opportunity to expand these services into other geographies."
The MSP currently partners with vendors including VMware, Samsung, MobileIron, Asavie, BlackBerry, Google, Netmotion, Microsoft and Apple.
