Fast growing Value Added Distributor Nuvias has opened a 13,504 sq. ft. EMEA HQ in Woking, Surrey.
CEO Paul Eccleston said: “The new EMEA HQ in Woking is part of our ongoing plans for growth and increased EMEA reach. It will be a focal point for EMEA-wide activities and a centre for training and development, as well as a location for hosting strategic meetings with our customers and vendor partners.”
Nuvias was founded in 2015 to address three main areas: Cyber Security (formerly Wick Hill); Advanced Networking (formerly Zycko) and Unified Communications (formerly SIPHON). In July 2017, it added Benelux value added distributor and security specialist DCB to the Group.
Eccleston said: “We created Nuvias because the channel needed a new kind of EMEA distributor to deal with the increasingly complex and diverse needs of the IT customer; the growth in demand for new technologies and emerging disruptive vendors; and the shift in how IT is consumed and provisioned. We’ve been working hard to help partners capitalise on the new opportunities presented by these changes.”
Since it was founded, Nuvias has added new vendor partners, such as Juniper Networks, Nokia, Malwarebytes, HID Global and BlueJeans, and extended the geographical scope of existing agreements with companies like Riverbed, Lifesize, ProLabs, Broadsoft, Polycom, AudioCodes, Oracle, Panasonic, Snom, VASCO, WatchGuard, Barracuda, Tintri and Kemp.
At the end of April, it announced a pan-European agreement with intelligence-led security company FireEye. As part of the agreement, Nuvias will be introducing NU:RAP for FireEye, a dedicated Rapid Acceleration Programme for new and existing partners to achieve growth and high-value returns.
In its last financial year, Nuvias increased turnover by 13.1% to more than $500 million. The company’s Unified Communications Practice grew by 18%, while the Advanced Networking and Cyber Security Practices both achieved 12% sales growth.
Since its foundation, Nuvias has opened new offices in Austria, Switzerland and South Africa and upgraded regional hub locations in Dubai, Germany and France. In total, it has 21 regional offices across EMEA.
