AV distie Midwich's swoop on Swiss counterpart MobilePro AG adds almost £19.5m annual revenue and strengthens its European presence.
Midwich MD Stephen Fenby commented: “The acquisition marks Midwich’s entry into the Swiss market, enabling the group to trade with a broad customer base and provide solutions for projects in many of our key vertical markets."
He noted that the deal pushes Midwich's operations into circa 75% of the European AV market.
Zurich-based MobilePro's product offering covers projection, LED panel and interactive technologies.
The company – which works with AV vendors including Samsung, NEC, Barco, Legrand AV and Smart – claims a particular strength in the large format display and technical solutions technology markets.
