Announces next stage of their five year plan to outgrow the market
Wisbech, Monday, 25th June 2018 – Anglia Components today announced the next phase of their ambitious five year plan to grow their share of the UK electronic component distribution market to 10%, with a turnover of £100 million. The company is actively recruiting as it continues to look to outgrow the market and achieve this growth organically.
Commenting Steve Rawlins, CEO, Anglia said, “Last year we set out a very ambitious five year plan and we have the right infrastructure, inventory and tools in place to hit these targets by 2022. Anglia’s strategy for growth is based on exceptional service delivered by exceptional people. Now our biggest challenge is getting the additional human resource that we need to grow the business over the next few years.” He continues, “With the market continuing to be strong, it is harder than ever to find people of the calibre needed, but Anglia is a burgeoning British business that has much to offer our employees.”
Anglia is the UK’s largest independently owned component distributor with an on-target turnover of £61 million in 2017. It was the UK’s fifth largest component distributor in 2016 according to the electronic component supply network (ecsn) and the 27th largest in the world (based on Source ESB figures).
Steve Rawlins concluded, “We are continuing to expand our team as our business grows, adding further exceptional people to maintain our high levels of customer service. Right now, we are seeking additional Field Application Engineers (FAEs), Field Sales and Head Office personnel. The UK market is buoyant, with manufacturing exports boosted because sterling is now at the right level. Our forward order book is now the strongest it’s ever been.”
