Multi-channel e-commerce business Tactus Group has complemented its portfolio of technology brands and strengthened its gaming proposition with the acquisition of award-winning PC gaming brand Chillblast.
This is the fourth acquisition by the 2021 Microsoft Device Partner of the Year and follows a £40 million investment from Chrysalis Investments in August.
Located in Poole, Dorset, Chillblast is the official PC supplier of Williams eSports and provider of cutting-edge VR technology used in RAF Air Cadet training simulators. It is an Intel Platinum Member and Microsoft Silver OEM Partner.
Scott Brenchley, CEO of Tactus Group, said: “We are building a global technology group with unrivalled expertise in the gaming space. Ultimately, we want to change the way people buy and use technology, so we are investing in brands and platforms that deliver the solutions that customers need, when they need it.
“Ben and his team have created a business renowned for building the best high-end PC systems on the market today, so Chillblast will be an excellent addition to Tactus and we look forward to welcoming them to the Group.”
