Buyouts push Ingram NZ staff past 300

Buyouts push Ingram NZ staff past 300

Distributor Ingram Micro says local staff numbers have risen to just over 300, with the addition of about 14 staff from Value Added Distributors and 27 from Vantex.

Ingram announced in May it would acquire Vantex Distribution, its seventh international acquisition of a POS/data capture distributor. 13 staff had already left Vantex for start-up POS distributor Sektor.

A month prior, Ingram said it would buy Value Added Distributors (VAD), which is now operating as a division of the local business.

Ingram Micro managing director Gary Bigwood says the integration of VAD staff was "absolutely seamless", with the division up and running within a couple of days.

However, he says the Vantex transition was more complex. "It's a new category for us. We took a number of staff in Ingram Micro roles and buddied them up with new staff."
