Management Team (l to r): Aukett Swanke Group Plc - Nick Clark (Chief Executive); Freddie Jenner (Chief Operations Officer); Anders+Kern UK Ltd: Barrie Meehan (Managing Director); Alison Taylor (Operations Director)


Anders+Kern has consistently provided cutting-edge hardware, software, and installation services to enhance room and desk booking systems, as well as IoT sensors for monitoring environmental and occupancy data.

Under the leadership of Barrie Meehan, Managing Director, and Alison Taylor, Operations Director, the business will continue its operations as a key part of the Group.

Anders+Kern UK Ltd is a leading distributor of Workspace & Audio-Visual technologies. Founded in 1989, the company provides hardware software and services through a network of channel partners and resellers.

With access to some of the world’s leading workspace and AV brands including Evoko, Smart Media Solutions, Space Connect, IAdea, Qbic and XY Sense, A+K is more than a traditional distributor. Unlike other distributors, A+K can provide full end-to-end solutions, including technical design, planning, implementation, installation and ongoing support.

Barrie Meehan, Managing Director of A+K, said:

“This acquisition is a positive step for Anders+Kern to continue building its success in smart workplace solutions, with both hardware and software offerings. We are excited to be part of the Aukett Swanke Group and look forward to working together with the group’s architectural and design services.”
