Kelway gets LAR status with BSS buy

Kelway has added Microsoft Large Account Reseller status to its credentials after acquiring Ireland's major (LAR) BSS.

The 25 year plus reseller, with operations in both Belfast and Dublin, is one of the largest LARs in Ireland and gives Kelway an expanded reach as well as access to the coveted Microsoft relationship.

"The deal represents a significant step forward for Kelway's operations in Ireland. BSS has well-established bases in both Dublin and Belfast and coverage of all 32 Irish counties. By combining the two companies' strengths we will look to maximise the value Kelway can bring to customers across the UK and Ireland," said Phil Doye, CEO at Kelway.

Kelway's strategy is to integrate BSS and use it to bolster its software licensing business across the EU.

Dan Laws, Managing Director, Kelway said: "We anticipate significant growth opportunities within our software licensing business as we look to integrate BSS into the broader Kelway group"

Willie McKee, managing director of BSS, said that the acquisition would be a good move for both its staff and clients.
