ELKO enters Nordic region by acquiring Gandalf
2017-09-26

Scandinavia: Latvian broadliner ELKO Grupa has reached an agreement to acquire 85% of shares in Swedish broadliner Gandalf Distribution for an undisclosed amount. "ELKO has been looking for geographical expansion opportunities for some time", said Svens Dinsdorfs, CEO ELKO Group. "Gandalf's business model and operational structure is very similar to our own and thus we feel confident about this acquisition. Gandalf’s team is highly motivated and professional and we feel comfortable about the coming integration process and ensuing synergy. By becoming a part of the ELKO Group, Gandalf will be able to significantly expand its product portfolio and benefit from various competence-sharing initiatives."

Gandalf will become a part of the ELKO Group, but for now will continue to operate under the Gandalf brand. David Nicander will continue to work as the CEO and also remain as a minority shareholder of Gandalf Distribution. "Gandalf has for many years successfully grown together with our customers and partners, and today we have taken a new step towards the next level of distribution. I am personally very proud of the opportunity to become part of the ELKO Group, and all the positive opportunities that this gives us at Gandalf to grow and expand our business in the Nordics", says David Nicander, CEO Gandalf.

News from ALSO, ELKO, Nelro Data and Versim
2017-09-12

Poland: broadliner ALSO has added Meetup videoconferencing systems from Logitech to its portfolio. Latvian broadliner ELKO has extended its business presence to Poland by outsourcing a local sales team for IT & Consumer products. According to the distributor, ELKO's extensive product portfolio, multi-regional coverage and particular East European market expertise, combined with the local market experience provided by the team of IT industry professionals, should generate significant incremental business opportunities for Polish channel partners. The sixth-largest economy in the EU, and the largest of the EU's former Eastern-Bloc members, is an organic and natural opportunity for the further growth of the ELKO Group, and the timing is right for this move. ELKO believes that, despite the relative maturity of the Polish market, there is room and a need for a new distributor, well known for its reliability and distinctive service offering in the region. ELKO Polska is located in Wrocław under the management of Marcin Tatar (the former export manager of MGM), which is the right choice for combining local presence with international logistics routes to get ELKO products and services supplied to the Polish market. Consumer electronics specialist Nelro Data has expanded its portfolio with two new brands, Ubiquiti Networks (meshed network infrastructure)1 and ZeeGO (home automation)2. Finally, network and security VAD Versim has inked a distribution deal with local data management editor Storware3 (source: IT Reseller Polska, CRN Polska 1, 2 and 3).
