ICT-supplier Infotheek, from Leiden, has taken over the Apple-supplier for the business market, Condor Computers from Zeist, per February 2013. The Apple-supplier is specialized in second-hand equipment just like Infotheek. Condor employs eight people. Up until now, Infotheek did not have much knowledge of Apple-systems.
Both parties saw the opportunity in this transaction to expand and deepen their business. ‘Our business customers are more often asking for Apple-equipment. The past years Infotheek has shifted their focus from PC-systems only to printers, servers, storage and Cisco-equipment’, says Infotheek spokesman Dave Go. ‘With this take-over we extend our portfolio with Apple-equipment.’
Condor will act as annex of Infotheek in province Utrecht. Director Reiny Westerveld of Condor Computers: ‘As part of Infotheek we get the opportunity to improve our Apple-propositions in the market.’ The new role of Westerveld at Infotheek is not yet known.
Westerveld wanted to speed up the growth of Condor, said the Infotheek spokesman Go. By joining Infotheek, Condor can latch on to the growth Infotheek has been going through for a few years now. ‘This way we can serve our clients even better, concerning Apple-products.’
Specialist of the year
Condor Computer has been supplier of new and used Apple computers, mobile devices like iPhones and iPads and is a Dell and HP-partner for ten years now. The focus is on clients in small and medium-sized companies and the large business segment. The company was declared as SMEs-specialist of the year by the branch association in 2009.
Infotheek is supplier of hardware and ICT-services. The automation company is specialized in reselling somewhat older models of PC’s, notebooks, servers, storage, networks, printing and other equipment of several A-labels. The assortment fits perfectly with the common used ICT-equipment for professional use.
Infotheek was founded in 1991 and has its headquarters in Leiden. Other offices are located in Belgium, Germany, Spain, United Kingdom and Sweden. Infotheek has over 370 employees.
