The Midwich Group, made up of several UK and European distribution companies, has acquired Ubiqz Limited, a distributor of security systems.
Anand Subbiah, Ubiqz's general manager reiterated that he was excited at the prospect of developing the firm’s business with the support of such a large group. As a specialist distributor, Midwich will continue to focus on the security sector but the acquisition will significantly improve customer service, product choice, stock availability and performance across all aspects of its business.
He further reiterated that in addition, the financial strength of its new parent company means that the firm will be extending its credit lines and investing for sustainable, long term growth. This really is tremendous news for Midwich staff, vendors and customers, he said.
Ubiqz, a trade-only distributor of analogue and IP-based security solutions, represents Bosch, Sanyo, Panasonic, JVC, Samsung and Maxxess among other manufacturers. The acquisition comes as Ubiqz is appointed distributor in the UK of Samsung’s iPOLiS range of IP and networking video surveillance solutions. It is expected to greatly bolster the firm’s offering in the UK.
With a thirty year heritage in the channel, Midwich has positioned itself as a leading, 100% trade only distributor of technology products. Distributing over fifty leading IT and AV brands means that Midwich is able to serve a variety of markets with a wide range of solutions.
Midwich is a privately owned and managed UK business with over 65 years of industry experience from its four owners. The Midwich group currently employs over 230 staff and serves over 6,000 customers in the UK and Ireland.
