As D&H Canada Wraps Up its 10th Fiscal Year, It Shows Impressive Growth in Servers, Gaming Products, Desktops, and Monitors and Realizes Success with its Western Expansion

HARRISBURG, PA - May, 21, 2018 - As it begins its Fiscal Year 2019, D&H Canada announces it has experienced growth of 21% overall in its Fiscal Year '18, which ended April 30, 2018. In addition, the company has exceeded its sales goals at its newest warehouse location in Richmond, with approximately 1,000 resellers now being serviced from that location. This validates D&H's strategy to expand its high-touch service model in the Western provinces, making faster deliveries available in this region and extending the distributor's value proposition successfully throughout the country. Growth areas for FY '18 included server products (190%); PC gaming solutions, accessories, and components (170%); video cards (80%); monitors (38%); and desktops (35%).

D&H Canada's western expansion plan is part of an overall growth strategy that has resulted in double-digit increases every year since D&H launched its first Canadian warehouse in 2007. This includes the addition of a reseller event in Richmond, BC, that took place in November. In addition, D&H Canada typically adds close to 50 customers per month to its roster.

D&H Distributing is celebrating its 100th anniversary in the marketplace in 2018. Over that century, the company has established itself as a major resource to the channel, one whose history is intertwined with the roots of the technology industry itself. Read more about D&H's Centennial and its history in the technology marketplace at www.dandh.ca/Centennial, including a milestone timeline.

The company developed from a tire retreading company founded in 1918 in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, USA, offering guarantees on its work at a time when even the original manufacturers did not. It has stayed true to that original model of offering services on behalf of manufacturer partners into the present day, becoming a major source of education, resources, and product knowledge for solution providers, integrators, and dealers.

Through its history, D&H Distributing has sold some of the market's first televisions, video gaming system, computers, and networking routers. The company opened its first Canadian warehouse in Mississauga, Ontario, and has since moved its Canadian headquarters to larger eastern facilities in Brampton, in addition to opening the Vancouver distribution center last year.

“We're proud to continue D&H's legacy as a resource for the channel, enhancing our service proposition throughout the country and building a base of loyal resellers and dealers through a model of consultative support,” said Greg Tobin, general manager since the company launched its Canadian presence. “We look forward to a future that continues to focus on strengthening its customer breadth and helping those customers grow by leveraging emerging trends and opportunities.”

Growth Areas for D&H Canada in FY 2018 Include:
Server Products 190%
PC Gaming, Accessories, Components170%
Video Cards80%
