Exertis acquires French cabling distributor Azenn

Technology distributor Exertis has acquired Azenn Holding Développement, a French distributor of cabling and network devices and services.

The move follows other acquisitions by Exertis and focused on European expansion. In the last two years the distributor has bought Amacom, Comm-Tec and Keren.

Azenn, a Montauban de Bretagne, Brittany headquartered business, employs approximately 200 people across five locations throughout France, including a large distribution centre in Satolas-et-Bonce, Lyon. Azenn delivered revenues of €60 million in the last financial year and is led by Philippe Betherlot [pictured above], president, who will remain with the business.

Exertis hopes Azenn will complement, enhance and extend the service offerings of Exertis Connect, its existing commercial business in France.

Clive Fitzharris, managing director, Exertis International, said: “Azenn is a great fit with our existing commercial business in France and will allow us to offer a broader range of network devices and cabling solutions to customers, both inside and outside the building.”
