ALSO Poland has announced it has merged ABC Data with its existing Polish operations.
The Switzerland-headquartered distributor giant closed its acquisition of ABC Data in July, adding €1bn in revenues cross six countries.
The buy was a protracted transaction, being delayed several times, and angering some ABC data shareholders who claimed ALSO's price was too low.
However, the European Commission did give approval for the takeover. Upon closing the deal, ALSO renamed ABD Data Roseville Investments by ALSO Group.
That brand name will now be changed again, replaced by ALSO Polska.
ALSO Group CEO Gustavo Möller-Hergt claimed that fully merging the two entities will strengthen ALSO's position in Poland.
"With a powerful, committed and highly competent management team at the start, we have laid the foundations to develop new perspectives for the dynamic growth of our business partners and our own organisation," he said.
"Operating as one company, ALSO Polska is now able to offer its customers and partners a substantially enlarged range of business and technological solutions that until now were not available on such a scale in Poland."
The merger is part of ALSO's consolidation strategy in the CEE market.
It acquired €110m-turnover Bulgarian player Solytron in April after buying up €80m-turnover Slovenian distributor DISS Group and €40m Croatian player RECRO last year.
ALSO is present in 15 countries in Europe and reached €9bn in sales in its FY2018.
