Micro-P mobile and tablet sales boosts growth for DCC

Micro-P has played a key role in driving growth at parent group DCC with strong mobile and tablet sales over the past year.

Announcing its results for the year ended 31 March 2013, DCC said group revenue rose 19.4% to €13 billion in the period.

DCC CEO Tommy Breen said the division had experienced ‘very strong growth in Britain in the mobile communications and tablet product categories.’

The group said DCC Sercom, its distribution arm, which includes Micro-P, had seen strong organic growth in its mobile devices business in the UK and its supply chain management activity which had offset the decline in the home entertainment market in Britain. 

In its results statement the company said: ‘The business in Britain, which accounted for 72% of revenue, achieved very strong organic growth in its IT and communications product sectors, particularly in mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers.

‘This reflects the rapid market acceptance of new computing and leisure form factors and the investment made in recent years to position the business as a significant participant in this market.

'DCC SerCom remains well placed to benefit from the ongoing demand from consumers and businesses to access content and data on a broad range of converged technology devices.’

The company did not strip out sales and profit figures for Micro-P in its results. However Micro-P group MD Gerry O’Keeffe said: ‘The results demonstrate that Micro-P had a very strong year gaining plenty of momentum in the market and we are very pleased with the developments we have secured over the last year to ensure we can continue to grow to deliver growth for the year ahead.’
