Rubix was formed in 2017 when private equity firm Advent International merged French industrial distributor IPH with its UK counterpart, Brammer, taken private by Advent in a £222m deal earlier that year. In April 2018, Martin Gaarn Thomsen, 48, was appointed CEO and the Danish national has since overseen an expansion of the group’s presence in France, Germany, Italy and eastern Europe. It now distributes industrial products from more than 650 sites across Europe.
