Local IT service provider and reseller Dataflex has been purchased by VTS IT Group, with the transaction including the trading name, customer list and some staff.
The company was placed into voluntary administration earlier this year.
Dataflex has a substantial history of contracts with government departments and reportedly made around $35 million in sales in the 2012-13 financial year. Founded in 1987, the company is based in Barton with offices also in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Dataflex employed around 40 people before the administration. Administrators made about 10 staff redundant, admitting the company did not have enough assets to meet staff entitlements.
The new owner will reportedly look at re-hiring employees from Dataflex’s Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne offices who were let go when the company collapsed.
Founder and director Brian Evans will remain with the company, which will continue to trade under its own name.
