Targeting education and business customers as well as consumers, this Bradford-based system builder smashed the £100m revenue barrier in its year to 31 August 2020 on the back of 55 per cent growth. Net profits more than doubled to £1.9m, meanwhile. Founded in 2003, PC Specialist claims to ship a PC every 4.8 minutes. Boasting branches in France, Italy and Spain and a subsidiary in Germany, it claims to speak ten languages and supply computers to over 30 countries in Europe.
PC Specialist did not broach the pandemic in its annual accounts, but its barnstorming numbers suggest it benefited as much from the lockdown e-commerce boom as peers including CCL, Box, Scan, eBuyer and Technoworld.
