E-mail Print PDF

According to a document uploaded on the website of French competition regulator Autorité de la concurrence, Belgian VAR Econocom plans to acquire French infrastructure specialist Aciernet.

Econocom"In accordance with Article L 430-3 of the French Commercial Code, Econocom SE proposes to acquire sole control of Aciernet SAS in the services sector," the document reads.

Founded in 2001, Aciernet is an infrastructure specialist in networking and datacentre integration and services. It is based in the suburbs of Paris and counts the likes of Cisco, EMC, Arista, Arbor Networks, Palo Alto and Fortinet as partners.

Aciernet is not the only company Econocom is rumoured to be buying-- according to Belgian news site De Tijd the VAR has also acquired Energy Net, the German IT company whose partnerships include HP, Apple, Microsoft, Sophos and Citrix.

Econocom has been recently busy with the acquisitions. Last May it snapped up AV player BIS, consulting services outfit LP Digital Agency and education supplier JTRS in a bid to own more expertise and services across the European region. It has also reportedly been considering making more purchases in the UK and Germany.

That said, the VAR is still to confirm its deals with either Aciernet or Energy Net.
