PC Mall buys solutions provider

Computer cataloger PC Mall has agreed to buy substantially all the assets of technology solutions provider Wareforce out of Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The deal is subject to court approval.

For fiscal 2001, Wareforce took in sales of $89 million from continuing operations. In a statement, PC Mall chairman/president/CEO Frank Khulusi said that Wareforce “fits very well with our vision to grow our professional and engineering services business, as well as increase our penetration in the higher- end enterprise market.”

Just last month PC Mall acquired the assets of $83 million Pacific Business Systems, the parent company of the ClubMac computer catalog.
