D&H CANADA EXCEEDS 18% GROWTH MAY-NOV. 2014, LOOKS TO SERVERS, NEW PRODUCTS FOR 2015
Developments Such as the Addition of Lenovo's System X Servers; the MS Server 2003 Refresh; and the Internet of Things Will Drive Sales for

BRAMPTON, ONT. - December 19, 2014 - D&H Distributing, a leading North American computer products and consumer electronics distributor, announces it has experienced an overall growth rate of more than 18% for the period from May to November of 2014, exceeding the general rate of distribution growth in the channel. Top-selling categories in 2014 included server products at 48% growth; tablets at more than 100% growth; laptops and notebooks at 74%; and desktops at 75%. Other categories such as monitors, SSD drives and imaging solutions also showed double-digit increases. In addition, D&H Canada grew its client base by 500 customers over the course of the calendar year.

Strong showings in categories such as server and networking solutions were aided by momentous end-of-service notifications that have been the focus of many of D&H's training and support initiatives. This included the company's campaign addressing Microsoft's termination of support for the 11 year-old Server 2003 solutions, which will require significant network upgrades for companies throughout the small business community. And the end-of-service deadline for Microsoft's popular XP operating system, which elapsed this spring, generated sales for D&H resellers in the first two quarters of 2014.

D&H is focused on adding new resellers and expanding vendors into its unique SMB customer base. The Internet of Everything philosophy will continue to gain momentum, wherein both consumers and employees seek technological connection to everything from their office spaces to their home appliances to their own bodies. In this vein, wearable activity and notification bracelets from vendors like Striiv are facilitating trends in these areas.

"D&H Canada has had a prosperous year overall, including crucial changes such as our transition to a larger warehouse and office space, and ongoing growth in our trade show schedule. We've devoted our resources to helping dealers and resellers prepare for unique market developments that present once-in-a-decade refresh opportunities," said Greg Tobin, general manager at D&H Canada. "We will continue to support the evolution of the marketplace in 2015, leveraging trends like the Internet of Everything to full advantage. D&H will arm its customers with the tools and technologies they need for ongoing growth and success. We look forward to seeing how these exciting new paradigms will drive the industry."
