Value-added distributor CMS Distribution is expanding its presence in the French market with the acquisition of Avesta, a specialist distributor of mobile solutions and high-tech products based on the outskirts of Paris.
The addition of Avesta and its 32 employees increases CMS Distribution’s head count to more than 400 across 12 locations in the UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Benelux, Scandinavia, Australia, China and USA.
Frank Salmon, Founder and CEO of CMS Distribution, said: “We are delighted to welcome Avesta to the group. Going forward, our French customers will gain access to an increased product portfolio, additional sales and marketing resources and more competitive offerings.”
CMS Distribution will continue to run the business under the Avesta name, with the same leadership and management team.
