Net profit: 1.9% Staff: 74
This education specialist branded calendar 2020 a "very successful year" as revenues ticked up by over a third and net profits more than doubled to £926,000. Getech supplied 20,000 Chrome devices to local authorities and schools during the year, while its higher education arm was kept busy by surging demand for remote learning devices. The Ipswich-based outfit doubles up as a thin client and Chromebook distributor (ranking 33rd in CRN's Top 40 UK Distributors), although direct sales generated 53 per cent of its top line.
As a supplier of schools and universities, Getech was swamped by demand for remote learning technology last year. "Bold decisions" around sourcing stock enabled it to adapt quickly to the changing circumstances, it claimed.
