SHI International has witnessed a 12 per cent annual spike in revenues, with the UK acting as a star overseas market.
The US reseller's revenue in 2017 topped $8.5 billion (£6 billion), making it a record year for the firm. While its corporate and SMB division witnessed 21 per cent year on year revenue growth, it was the UK which drove its international business with 28 per cent growth.
SHI also had 10 per cent year on year growth for its commercial and strategic enterprise division, while its public sector unit grew five per cent.
"Over the last 18 months, SHI has made significant investments in onboarding additional resources and expertise in support of public and hybrid cloud solutions featuring technologies such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud," said Thai Lee, president and CEO of SHI.
"Through intense in-house training and aggressive talent acquisition, we've become a holistic resource for customers, capable of supporting both the technology and the business aspects needed to enable and support advanced IT solutions," claimed Lee.
Microsoft remained SHI's top partner in 2017, growing 15 per cent over 2016, while Amazon Web Services (AWS) was the fastest growing top-tier partner for the second year in a row, with a 62 per cent leap in the past year.
Cisco saw the second-fastest growth of its top vendors, with revenue 33 per cent higher than in 2016. Dell, HP Inc., VMware, Lenovo, Adobe, Apple, HP Enterprise, and Symantec rounded out the list of SHI's top 11 partners.
Lee said the question which drives the firm's every actions is: How can technology help its customers succeed?
"We're able to answer it every day by cultivating partnerships old and new; dedicating time and resources to advancing our employees' careers, expertise, and aptitudes; and always anticipating what our customers will need to meet their business objectives," added Lee.
