Arkphire’s acquisition of Singapore’s Generic Technologies positions the Irish company for rapid growth in Asia.

Dublin IT company Arkphire has acquired Singapore-based IT solutions and services company Generic Technologies for an undisclosed sum.

Generic Technologies is a specialist Apple Authorised Reseller and an Adobe Gold partner with annual turnover of 9 million Singapore dollars (€5.85m).

“This latest development will allow us to better support the global requirements of our customers”

The company supports a growing network of partners and customers across South East Asia. Generic Technologies was founded in 1992 on the back of growing demand from businesses requiring Apple and Adobe technology and support services.

Generic has an established base of customers covering a number of multinational firms, businesses in the digital and creative sector and local SMEs.

With the combined resources of both companies, Arkphire can scale their unique service delivery model to meet the needs of the Singapore and Asia Pacific markets with a stronger and more comprehensive IT solution offering to existing and new clients.

“We’re very excited about how we can further support our clients with the expansion of our business in Singapore,” said Chris Ambler, head of Arkphire’s Asia Pacific business.

“Generic Technologies business is a natural fit for our ambition in the Asia Pacific region.  This latest development will allow us to better support the global requirements of our customers and will enable us to leverage Generic’s existing customer and partner relationships.”

Late last year, Arkphire acquired Trilogy Technologies to create the largest and fastest growing Irish headquartered IT procurement and IT managed services business.

Following this acquisition, the newly enlarged group became the largest and fastest growing Irish headquartered IT procurement and IT managed services business with combined revenues close to €150m and employing 220 people.
