Rigby Private Equity creates Nuvias specialist distribution group
Rigby Private Equity announced the formation of Nuvias Group, a holding company for the pan-EMEA high value distribution business being built to redefine specialist value distribution. Distributors Wick Hill and Zycko become part of Nuvias Group and will be known as Wick Hill, a Nuvias group company, and Zycko, a Nuvias group company
With Nuvias, Rigby Private Equity is building an EMEA-wide, high-value, specialist distribution business, with a common proposition and consistent delivery. The strategy is to redefine value distribution to the channel, enabling the channel and vendor community to deliver exceptional business value to their customers and creating new standards of channel success.
Nuvias will provide a consistent quality of service, with best-in-class technologies, giving reseller partners local access to the best international services and solutions. Local expertise is backed up by a consistent operating platform, offering the highest level of value-added services and flexibility. For vendor partners and solution providers, Nuvias will deliver accelerated growth at all stages of the business and product growth lifecycle, enabling rapid expansion throughout EMEA.
Paul Eccleston, Head of Rigby Private Equity, now becomes CEO of Nuvias. He commented: “Zycko and Wick Hill form the foundations of Nuvias, a new type of international distribution company. We are building a distributor to meet the evolving demands of the channel. As of today, Nuvias is already serving 40 vendors and 5,000 resellers in thirteen countries. Moving forward, we will be covering all major territories in EMEA, offering a common value proposition, consistently executed. This will give any vendor or reseller best in class distribution services, no matter in which country.”
Wick Hill and Zycko were the first acquisitions for Rigby Private Equity and now are the first high value, specialist distributors in Nuvias Group. As far as vendors and resellers are concerned, there will be no changes, but there will certainly be additional opportunities for growth.
The Nuvias product portfolio encompasses networking, infrastructure, security, communications, storage, continuity, recovery, access, performance, monitoring and management. The turnover is over $300 million. Recently, Nuvias became a pan-EMEA distributor for vendors Unitrends and Malwarebytes.
