DC shrugs off global financial crisis

23 Jun 2010

Technology distributor Distribution Central has made what it calls a “significant resourcing investment” in its current financial year (July 1st – June 30th, 2010) with the addition of 33 new staff in the face of the global financial crisis.”

Scott Frew, CEO of Distribution Central, said, “We have added new staff to all areas of our business and experienced growth despite challenging economic conditions and a tough market.”

He continued, “In particular, we’ve boosted our in-house development team that is responsible for building our home-grown world class systems including iAsset, StormFront and DC Control, our online configurator, plus our IT services staff and certified engineers.”

Red Education has doubled the number of certified trainers in the last financial year with 12 instructors supporting 11 vendors including Aruba Neworks, Blue Coat, Clearswift, Crossbeam, Extreme Networks, Fortinet, F5 Networks, InfoAware, Infoblox, NET and Riverbed.

DC says it also made an investment in account management and technical staff across all its specialist business units.
