IM Europe marks 15 years


1 October 2004 – Brussels (BEL): Ingram Micro (IM) has been celebrating the 15th anniversary of opening in Europe.

The IT wholesaler entered the European market on 30 September 1989 with the acquisition of software distributor Softeurop in Brussels, Belgium, before swiftly expanding across the continent through a series of strategic acquisitions and greenfield start-ups.

Hans Koppen, president of IM Europe, said: "As we enter our next 15 years, we have a strong foundation in place for further development and exciting new opportunities."
