Logicalis UK has acquired CSF Solutions Ltd, (CSF) a Â£40 million revenue UK-based enterprise IT solutions provider. CSF has built a strong reputation in enterprise computing, specifically the IBM mainframe market and business critical servers from HP, and maintained a long-standing customer base with a significant number of impressive blue chip enterprises. As part of the agreement, Logicalis has also agreed terms to acquire CSF Managed Services Plc's 10,000 square foot Tier 3 data centre located in Bracknell, Berkshire. CSF will be integrated into Logicalis UK's operations. The terms of the deal were not disclosed. According to Logicalis, the acquisition significantly strengthens their role as a strategic partner for IBM and HP, particularly the IBM System z mainframe and HP - Alpha and Integrity server and storage solutions, by making Logicalis not only the UK's largest Systems z partner but one of the very few IBM channel partners that can support the entire IBM Systems z-, i-, p5- and x- server solutions range on both sides of the Atlantic. The transaction, the fifth European acquisition announced by Logicalis in the last 24 months, will see Logicalis' UK turnover grow to over $300 million as Logicalis continues its strategy of both organic growth and acquisition to augment its offering and add to the skills of its business across Europe and North and South America.
