Hardware has been the star performer for CCS Media after it finally smashed its £100m turnover goal five weeks early.
The firm, which has offices across the UK in locations including Acton, Birmingham, Bolton, Borehamwood, Bradford, Leatherhead and Leeds, is anticipating hitting £115m turnover for full-year end.
Brands performing strongly for the VAR include HP, Cisco and Microsoft along with Fujitsu and Lenovo, with sales of computer displays and computers showing 65 per cent and 35 per cent year-on-year growth respectively.
Last year the firm vowed to reach the magic £100m figure after hitting its predicted £80m revenue goal for its FY13.
Terry Betts, managing director of CCS, hailed what he described as an exceptional year for his firm.
“Our investment in people and training, strong relationships with brands and our excellent standards of care and service have enabled CCS to get to this milestone,” he said.
“This year, we invested a quarter of a million pounds in training and we are now a major employer of apprentices, giving people the opportunity to study and work and gain relevant qualifications and experience."
He added: “Our bonds with manufacturers are stronger than ever and in August, we hosted our annual Media Technology EXPO in London where IT vendors showcased their latest technology to our end users; the first time vendors have had direct contact with our customers. We anticipate our turnover to reach £115m by the end of the year."
