Ingram Micro Strengthens Position as Leading Global Repairs and Regeneration  Services Provider with Acquisition of ANOVO

Full Suite of End-to-End Mobility Lifecycle Services Now in Even More European and Latin American Countries Positions Ingram Micro at the Center of the Global Mobility Ecosystem

SANTA ANA, Calif., March 2, 2015 – The acquisition of ANOVO by  Ingram Micro Inc.
