The UK arm of Europe's second largest reseller continues to grow nicely, banking a tidy £2.5m net profit on revenues that swelled nine per cent to £68.5m in calendar 2019. That still doesn't match the 24 per cent growth generated by the wider group, which turned over €5.4bn last year and recently made its 100th acquisition. Germany-based Bechtle's growth has slowed in 2020, but it still defied COVID by achieving a four per cent annual sales uplift in Q2.
