Warrington, United Kingdom - 10 December 2012 - VIP Computers, one of the UK's largest independent distributors of components, peripherals and consumer products have today revealed their plans for significant channel expansion in 2013.
Spearheading the plan is the investment of over £1.6million to increase their warehousing capacity in Warrington by 31,000 square foot. VIP's merger last month with Realtime Distribution was a significant driver for the expansion plan, especially as VIP will be bolstering their vendor line-up for 2013.
VIP will continue to offer one of the biggest and diverse components portfolios in the IT industry, welcoming leading brands in 2013 to their line-up including:
- Dust Off
- Gigabyte Peripherals
The event proved instrumental in assisting customers and vendors to build their businesses, with vendors in general noticing an uplift in business on the back of the event.
Richard Marsden from VIP Computers said: "In 2012 we saw 13% growth in revenue and that trend is continuing. Where most of the industry looks ripe for consolidation, VIP continues to invest in the future with an ongoing commitment to our customers and vendors and the proven ability to deliver real value in distribution."
