tech_circuitboardUK-focused buyout house NVM Private Equity has invested £6.4m in the MBO of IT inventory management specialist Acal Enterprise Solutions from its parent company.

AES provides outsourced services to IT maintenance companies and original equipment manufacturers servicing the enterprise server, storage and networking markets.

The company provides services to more than 1,700 customers in over 5,000 locations across 25 countries throughout Europe, including CommsCare, SCC, Bull, Oracle and IBM.

NVM director Peter Hodson said, AES is one of the leading providers of managed inventory solutions in a relatively immature market.

“They’ve made strategic investments to improve their solutions and are heavily customer and quality focused – giving them a distinct competitive advantage.

“We’re excited to be a part of a highly profitable business that’s taking advantage of the global growth in digital trade.”
