Tactus buys Box

Tactus has written a cheque for high-performance gaming PCs and accessories supplier Box.

For those not in the know, Tamworth-based Box is an online retailer of consumer technology and specialist devices serving a customer base across the UK and Europe and had a turnover of £100 million during 2021.

It employs a team of over 140 employees, which means that Tactus Group’s headcount will be more than 350.

Tactus CEO Scott Brenchley said: “Box is a strong addition to Tactus Group. With the global gaming space highly fragmented, it is important that we continue to invest in those brands that will fulfil our ambition of being the go-to destination for PC gamers and this acquisition takes us closer to that goal. ”

“Box provides the group with significant operational capability and a broader customer base as we expand the reach of our brand products in the UK and overseas.

Tactus said the acquisition will boost its operational capability thanks to the addition of a 120,000 sq ft warehouse facility located on the M42 corridor.

Box managing director Mark Jordan said: “We have been growing our business through our high-quality product offering and loyal customer base since 1996.

“Joining Tactus Group, and its suite of leading technology brands and partners, is an exciting milestone in the Box journey.

“We look forward to adding to Tactus’ portfolio through our expert team, market knowledge and differentiated product offering.”
