Logicalis first established its presence in Asia-Pacific with the acquisition of NetStar Group Holdings Ltd (“NetStar”), a leading IP network infrastructure services provider in Asia-Pacific with capabilities and expertise across data, voice and security infrastructure, in January 2010.
Headquartered in the UK, Logicalis Group’s origins go back to 1997 when Datatec acquired Logical Networks plc, a UK based networking integrator (a company that had been established since 1988). From 1997 to 2000, Datatec embarked on a globalisation strategy, acquiring more than 20 IT integration and services companies across Europe, North and South America and Australasia.
In 2001, Logicalis Group, which is 100% owned by Datatec, became the formal statutory holding company of the Logicalis operating companies.
In 2003, Logicalis received an unsolicited offer from IBM for the Group's Australian and New Zealand businesses. The disposal was concluded in March 2004. Since then, Logicalis has continued to acquire companies throughout Europe, North and South America, and Asia Pacific, focusing on IT integration solutions and network and enterprise systems.
Logicalis Group currently has 6,500 employees worldwide providing services and solutions to almost 10,000 corporate and public sector customers.
