Distributor Midwich acquires display provider PSCo30 April 2015
Leading international AV and IT distributor Midwich Limited has acquired 100% of PSCo Group Limited, the Reading, UK based display distributor.
Under the leadership of Stuart Holmes (right of picture), PSCo has established itself as a leading provider of the latest display solutions and complementary services through its PSCo Rental, PSCo Technical Distribution and Nearly New AV offerings.
Holmes, who continues as managing director of PSCo, commented: “This exciting move allows PSCo to focus on the areas where we believe we truly add value to our trade partners. We have seen 12 months of exceptional growth and launched our LED offering along with a number of new and exciting partnerships, all of which we plan to capitalise on and grow further with the support of Midwich. We are looking forward to working in synergy with Midwich to expand both our rental and specialist distribution offerings throughout the UK and into Europe, utilising their geographical footprint.”
Stephen Fenby (left of picture), managing director of Midwich, added: “The acquisition of PSCo supports two of our key strategic objectives – to provide outstanding value-added support to our customers and vendors, and to continue the rapid growth of our display solutions business.”
Midwich customers, he said, will be able to benefit from enhanced sales and project support; access to new technologies (such as super high resolution LED displays) and service lines (such as trade rental); and specialist delivery services.
“Our vendors will see the benefit of the additional resource and expertise being applied to help them to achieve their own growth aspirations,” he added. “On a personal level, I am very much looking forward to working with Stuart and the team at PSCo. They have a well-deserved reputation for technical excellence, product innovation and delivering a great customer experience.”
PSCo has over 15 years’ experience in large-format, videowall and LED displays, and strong relationships with leading manufacturers. Its portfolio is available to view and test at the Assessment Centre in Reading with an experienced team on hand to offer technical advice and recommendations.
