For Immediate Release:

D&H CANADA ENDS YEAR WITH 28% GROWTH OVERALL AND DOUBLE-DIGIT INCREASES IN MULTIPLE CATEGORIES

Areas Such as Servers, Printers, Notebooks and Monitors Showed Above-Market Growth, While D&H Canada Looks to Educate its Partners to Spur Sales in 2016

BRAMPTON, ONT - December 10, 2015 - D&H Distributing, the leading North American computer products and consumer electronics distributor, announces the company has seen 28% growth overall for the second half of its calendar year, 2015. This includes double-digit increases over a multitude of individual categories year-over-year, including in key areas such as servers, printers, monitors, notebooks, and power solutions. These categories headed-up D&H Canada's list of top-sellers, showing increases ranging from 34% to a striking 185% respectively.

D&H Canada is looking toward categories such as smart home and office solutions and outdoor living products as growth targets in the future. In addition, the distributor is planning a roster of roadshow training events concentrating on specific technologies and vendor partners, to help develop resellers' businesses. The distributor will also continue its support of resellers looking to capitalize on sales and upgrades of the new Windows 10 operating system, launched this year. In fact, D&H Canada resellers were recently able to participate in a Windows 10 training session through the distributor's renowned Solutions Lab venue--one of the most highly-attended sessions the Lab has ever hosted. The event is still available for on-demand streaming.

Much of the increased activity in the server category was due to D&H's long-term support relative to Microsoft's Server 2003 end-of-service deadline, which elapsed in July of this year. Throughout 2015, the distributor urged its VARs to take advantage of refresh opportunities that accompany a cut-over to a new server infrastructure, which often includes comprehensive upgrades of back office systems and ancillary networking solutions.

"D&H Canada has seen across-the-board performance over the course of 2015 that strictly outpaces the general growth of the distribution market," said Greg Tobin, general manager at D&H Canada. "We're thrilled that our customers derive significant value from our programs and services, and that we're living up to our commitment to the channel as a distribution partner. We're looking to extend that commitment, helping to develop our customers through new trainings and emerging technologies, so they may become more versatile and profitable in the year to come."
