As specialists in emerging consumer technologies, they have an impressive range of vendors and customers which perfectly complement the CMS Distribution portfolio. Our customers will gain access to the latest consumer technology trends, an increased product portfolio, additional sales and marketing resources and more competitive offerings. We are very excited to offer our vendor partners new routes to market, allowing them to explore new business opportunities."

Liam Casey, CEO and Founder of PCH, said: "TNS Connect has been part of the PCH family for the past six years, and we are grateful to the TNS team for their valuable contribution and commitment. We know that CMS is the right parent company to take TNS to the next level given their focus on enhancing their product distribution capability. PCH continues to focus on our core business providing highly differentiated and value-added product development, manufacturing, packaging and fulfilment services globally." Following the acquisition, CMS Distribution will now employ over 300 people across the group with a very strong foothold in Europe covering Benelux, France (through a recently opened office in Paris), Ireland (under CMS and TNS names), Scandinavia and the United Kingdom (under CMS, TNS and Widget names).

Our customer and vendor offerings will provide great business opportunities for our channel partners so we can embark on this journey of growth together."

CMS wants to become a significant player in continental Europe, opening up more opportunities for our suppliers and offering the benefits of scale to our customers."

Widget to distribute Tile
2016-05-26

Mobility specialist Widget has started the distribution of Tile, a Bluetooth location technology device, in the Benelux, Scandinavia and the United Kingdom. Tile is a Bluetooth locator and companion app that helps people find lost possessions such as keys, wallets, purses, cars, bags, luggage and more. Tile is an elegantly designed, tiny white square that pairs with a smartphone or tablet to become a homing companion for lost things. Users can simply open the app and ring any item that is in Bluetooth range or see its last known location on a map. Tile also works in reverse, allowing consumers to ring their smartphone with the push of a button on their Tile device itself even if the phone is left on silent mode. Widget's Managing Director David Elder said: "Tile is the breakthrough product in the location technology market. The retailers which have already come on board with Tile have seen very encouraging sales and we are looking forward to expanding the retail points of presence across Northern Europe." Launched in the US via a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2012, Tile attaches to everything from bikes to bags to key chains to help people locate the item if lost or stolen through a mobile app.
