Revenue: £62.1m (-18%)

Net profit: 0.5%     Staff: 86

Following seven straight years of growth, the UK-based, EMEA arm of this global reseller saw both revenues and profits roll backwards in calendar 2020 as it admitted it "was not immune" to the fallout from Covid. UK sales dipped from £34.5m to £24.4m. During the year, Zones incorporated a separate business entity in Ireland. Globally, the US-based reseller employs 2,000 staff, serving 80 countries. It counts Adobe, Apple, Cisco, Dell, HPE, HP Inc, Intel, Lenovo, Microsoft and NetApp as its key vendors.

Covid impact

"Not as drastic as it could have been", in the words of Zone's strategic report. Some customers who embraced the changes in technology required to adapt to the pandemic increased spend, while others reduced or suspended budgets, it said.
