A well known and respected distributor within the IT sector, Realtime was established in 1989 and its particular strength is in supplying gaming components to the trade and components to the industrial markets. It boasts key partnerships with manufacturers including Sapphire, Corsair, VIA and ECS.
Following the acquisition, Realtime will retain its corporate identity, exclusive product lines and its own customer base, managed by the sales team in Huntingdon.
"There is a great deal of synergy between VIP and Realtime's businesses," said VIP chairman Jatti Sahni. "Together we have a stronger base of customers and strength of PC component volumes. This will allow an enhanced position in the UK for both companies."
Realtime Distribution's MD Mark Reed added: "This is the best opportunity for Realtime to grow as a business in an industry that has seen a lot of change over the past two years.
"The backing of a larger company like VIP can provide Realtime with the structure and support it needs to become larger and more prosperous over the years to come."
