SA-based Datatec earns an ever bigger part of its profits outside the borders of the country.
In the year to 28 February 2009, its UK-based subsidiary Logicalis (staff of 1,500 and offices in Germany, the US and South America) contributed 43% of the $126 million Datatec banked in earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA).
Logicalis is a Cisco Gold partner and focuses on data centre solutions, unified communications and managed services.
Intact Integrated Services (Intact) has been separated from the Logicalis Group to operate as independent subsidiary of the South African IT group Datatec.
As a part of Datatec Consulting Operations, the IT service provider Intact will be available to the whole group and report directly to Datatec Holding (as does consulting company Analysys Mason, another subsidiary of Datatec), the consulting company announced yesterday.
Intact is based in Berlin, Germany.
Westcon, the UK-based Datatec subsidiary and network distributor, will cut about 25 of its 450 jobs to give effect to an earlier Datatec decision to trim costs in its European businesses.
