The motivation behind the acquisition was to protect the service for our major customers. We have partnered successfully with RDC for many years, firstly under our ownership and over the last five years successfully while RDC has been owned by Arrow. We fully respect Arrow’s decision to step out of the ITAD business globally. While we have investigated working with other partners, we believe that acquiring RDC is the most straightforward way to guarantee continuity of service to our major accounts, particularly given our historic knowledge of the business. We would like to thank Arrow for their speed and cooperation in bringing the transaction to a swift conclusion. We look forward to maintaining and growing our long-established relationship with Arrow in other areas in which they operate.
Mike Norris, Computacenter’s Group CEO commented “we are delighted that we will be maintaining a high-level of IT Asset Disposal services to our customers into the future”.
