Revenue: £223.7m (-8%)

Net profit: 2.2%     Staff: 463

Having seen a decade-long growth run come to an end last year, this Chesterfield-based reseller is confident of resuming top-line expansion in 2021 "and beyond". Revenues shrank eight per cent to £223.7m in calendar 2020, with net profits falling fractionally to £5m. During the year, the Cisco, Dell, HP, HPE, Microsoft and Lenovo partner invested in its as-a-service offering, a new public sector team and offices in Ireland and the Netherlands to facilitate post-Brexit trading. It has 14 offices in England, Wales and Scotland.

Covid impact

Despite the 2020 sales dip, CCS stressed that it has "very little exposure" to the sectors hammered hardest by Covid. It also claimed it is well positioned to benefit from the move to hybrid working.
