HP Inc-owned Apogee has signalled its European ambitions with two transactions in France.
The UK-based document and IT services firm – acquired by HP in 2018 – has made an unspecified investment in French reseller MCA to form an entity known as MCA-Apogee. Located in the Paris region, the new company will be headed by former MCA CEO Salem el Hammami.
At the same time, MCA-Apogee has acquired the print management business of another France-based services provider, AM Trust, creating what Apogee described as “a French leader in managed workplace services”.
“Apogee will use its experience, and the expertise of AM Trust Group, in financing solutions, data management and digital dematerialisation to complement MCA-Apogee’s portfolio of services, benefiting new and existing customers,” the UK firm stated in a press release.
Apogee CEO Aurelio Maruggi said the investments represented a “significant step” towards establishing a pan-European presence.
