Acquisition of Orca Tech strengthens Tech Data’s aspiration of becoming the leading value-added distributor in Strategic Technologies, which include IT Security, Cloud, Analytics and AI, in Australia and New Zealand

Tech Data has acquired Orca Technology Pty Ltd. (Orca Tech), an independent value-added distributor focused on the IT Security marketplace in Australia & New Zealand (ANZ). Effective immediately, this acquisition strengthens Tech Data’s IT Security footprint through its enhanced technical capabilities, solutions and portfolio. Founded in 2017 by Martin Christmas and Jack Sabo, Orca Tech is highly specialised in sales, technical and marketing services to resellers.

“We are thrilled to welcome Orca Tech into the Tech Data and TDSYNNEX family. With this acquisition, we are expanding our IT Security portfolio and capabilities, delivering higher value to our customers and partners in ANZ. Orca Tech has built a strong reputation as a trusted IT Security specialist and has a proven track record of success. Together, we will create new opportunities for growth and innovation in the fast-growing IT Security market,” said Jaideep Malhotra, President of TD SYNNEX in Asia Pacific & Japan.

“At Orca Tech, we are excited for the new opportunities in the journey ahead – from the ability to expand our offerings to existing vendors and partners, to the increase in scale that brings new and exciting developmental opportunities for employees in both companies. We believe that the synergies developed from both organisations scaling their know-how and capabilities will be a boon for the entire IT channel ecosystem across the value chain, from vendors to partners and end-customers,” shared Craig Ashwood, General Manager, Orca Tech. 

This acquisition brings together the best-of-both in-house capabilities, while creating opportunities to synergise both organisations’ vendor and partner-base. With a 100% focus on Security, Orca Tech’s team possesses deep technical knowledge and capabilities, which will combine with, and complement the existing Tech Data ANZ security competencies, vendors and partners. Tech Data will add hyperscaler marketplaces with AWS and Microsoft through our StreamOne Ion platform and help simplify the complexities of the cloud transition for Orca Tech’s vendors and partners.  Tech Data will also bring to bear security and cloud services as well our unique Centre of Excellence environments and Practice Builder toolsets.
