PCM appeared in the UK in May and has been headhunting staff from rivals bought cloud services provider The Stack Group.
Provista is a Glasgow-based network and security reseller with revenues of £7.7 million. The move gives PCM several top vendors including Cisco, Avaya Saphire and VMWare. It scores offices in Aberdeen and Birmingham.
The deal will additionally contribute to its “opportunity to extend its growth of the existing managed services and multi-lingual global service desk within the European region”, PCM said.
Donavan Hutchinson, managing director, UK & International for PCM UK said that with the combined investments and the acquisition of Provista UK and The Stack Group, PCM was positioned to accelerate its UK growth across all advanced solutions categories.
PCM president Jay Miley added: “We are continuing to follow our global strategy to bring our leading North American solutions to the UK, and this acquisition further expands one of our largest vendor relationships through the acquisition of a UK Cisco Gold Partner.”
Stuart Little, director and major shareholder of Provista UK, said: “When PCM contacted us and shared their vision for the UK, it fit perfectly with our own ambitions to accelerate the growth of Provista in the UK. After having built the business to achieve Cisco Gold Partner status, it is exciting to now be able to be part of PCM and take the business to the next level, offering our solutions and services across the UK while complimenting the other robust PCM offerings.”
