Tech Data has completed its acquisition of software VAD Man and Machine after the deal received the green light from the European Commission.

Man and Machine - known as Mensch und Maschine in its native Germany - specialises in Autodesk design software and has been looking to exit the distribution market for some time.

The firm's CEO Adi Drotleff said: "This marks the second and final step from distribution to value added reselling, which we had started three years ago in the German speaking countries and are now rolling out across Europe."

Man and Machine trades across Europe, including in the UK where it has a base in Oxfordshire, and will be folded into the firm's TDDatech design software unit.

TDDatech Europe vice president Mike Appel said that the deal "fully supports our strategy to expand and enhance our service and specialised added value to the Autodesk VAR channel."
