Pos Pos hits the wall in AUS, NZ impact unclear
The fate of the Kiwi operations of Australian POS distributor Mecari Pty, previously known as Pos Pos, remain unknown after the Australian operations were placed into receivership earlier this month.
Mecari, which has offices throughout Australia and New Zealand, was placed into receivership on January 5, with Mark Pearce and Michael Dullaway from Pearce & Heers Insolvency Accountants appointed as receivers.
A spokesperson at Pearce & Heers confirmed the company had been appointed as receivers but would not comment on what the receivership meant for New Zealand.
“We have nothing to do with that so you’ll have to talk to someone at POS POS.”
A person at the Mecari Auckland office refused to comment on the impact of the receivership on the local operations and referred Techday to Daniel Danielli, Mecari chief executive officer.
Danielli has not responded to repeated calls and emails from Techday.
POS POS rebranded to Mecari Digital Distribution Services in July 2014 and sold a stake to Minerva Solutions.
The New Zealand operations are 100% owned by POS POS PTY, with Danielli and Scott Loose, also from Australia, as directors.
The company has numerous vendor partnerships including Motorola, Epson, Datalogic, Panasonic in Australia and Vertex Standard in New Zealand.
The Mecari website lists airline, gambling, manufacturing and public safety industries as some of its verticals, as well as the traditional retail sector.
