The DV Trading Aalborg department: Considerations behind the divestment

The Aalborg department has been an integral part of DV Trading for a number of years, so the decision to divest the department had to be taken with careful considerations, explains DV Trading’s CEO Carsten Marcell.

Originally planned for a generational succession, we have concluded that the recent years’ positive development of the Aalborg department is best continued within the framework of Nordic Computer, which has the necessary size and market presence to support our growth strategy and the professional service to our customers.

It was a decisive factor that Nordic Computer share the same values ​​that are of key significance to DV Trading: - customer focus, quality, high level of service and a constant pursuit of long-term customer relations, which together ensure that customers’ experience remains the same after the acquisition.

In addition, it has been very important to us, that the Aalborg department now becomes part of a larger, professional environment within data center hardware and service. We are absolutely convinced that Nordic Computer will be a positive experience for both employees and customers, Carsten Marcell continues, referring to the fact that Nordic Computer already deliver these products and solutions with great success.
