Revenue: £123.8m (+36%)

Net profit: 2.8%     Staff: 187

"Significant" wins with new and existing customers fuelled a 36 per cent revenue surge at this Basingstoke-based channel stalwart in its year to 31 August 2020. Net profits doubled to £3.5m as the top-line rise came despite any additional headcount investment. Founded in 1981 by chairman Rafi Razzak, Centerprise has fingers in numerous pies, including system building, reselling, distribution, IT recycling and IT asset management. In September 2021 it launched CiCloud, a cloud computing platform built on HPE GreenLake.

Covid impact

As a public sector and MoD specialist, Centerprise may have avoided the worst of the Covid carnage last year. The whole of its operation continued to function effectively through lockdown, it said.
