The pioneering designer and manufacturer of technology products, Tactus Group, has acquired the award-winning custom PC builder, Chillblast.
Chillblast’s virtual reality technology powers the Ministry of Defence’s RAF Air Cadet training simulators. The company is also collaborating with Williams eSport, part of the famous Formula 1 team, to provide cutting-edge devices for gamers and enthusiasts looking to compete at the highest level.
“Located in Poole, Dorset, Chillblast has won hundreds of prestigious awards for its products, from the likes of PC Pro, PC Gamer, and PC Advisor. The company is also an Intel Platinum Member and Microsoft Silver OEM Partner,” said a spokesperson for Tactus.
“This acquisition enhances North West-based Tactus’ status as a global multi-channel e-commerce business. Chillblast’s unique offering and positioning in the gaming technology market is complementary to the existing brands in the wider group, including Geo, Horizon, and Nazare.”
Tactus had raised £40m from Chrysalis Investments back in August to fuel its expansion plans.
Scott Brenchley, CEO of Tactus Group, said, “We are building a global technology group with unrivaled expertise in the gaming space. Ultimately, we want to change the way people buy and use technology, so we are investing in brands and platforms that deliver the solutions that customers need when they need it.”
“Chillblast will be an excellent addition to Tactus, and we look forward to welcoming them to the group.”
“We’re excited to become part of the Tactus Group. We have built Chillblast into an award-winning gaming brand over the last two decades, and, with our presence in the gaming space well established, this is an exciting time for us to be joining a fast-growing technology group like Tactus,” added Ben Miles, Managing Director at Chillblast.
