Tech Data, Inc.

As one of the largest wholesale IT distributors, Tech Data is the conduit through which the power of technology flows to the world. In fiscal 2010, we sold nearly $88 million worth of IT products a day to more than 125,000 technology resellers in over 100 countries. Every day these resellers depend on us to help them cost-effectively support the technology needs of end users of all sizes, including individual consumers, small and medium businesses, large enterprises, educational institutions and governmental agencies.

Being at the center of the IT supply chain means Tech Data is in the unique position to provide a broad range of product lines, logistics capabilities and value-added services that enable technology makers and technology resellers to deploy powerful and cost-effective IT solutions. While we don’t make any of the IT products we sell, we play an indispensable role in getting them from those who do and delivering them to those who bring technology to life—all with the knowledge that, at Tech Data, IT Depends on Us.

Leading technology companies including Apple, Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Lenovo, McAfee, Microsoft, Sony, Symantec, and VMware—along with hundreds of others—depend on Tech Data to bring their products to market. Our superior logistics operations are managed out of our 24 logistics centers worldwide, totaling over 5.4 million square feet of warehouse space. This impressive physical infrastructure gives Tech Data the ability to stock in-demand IT products and, in turn, ship them to almost any destination in record time.

Far exceeding basic ”pick, pack and ship,” a quick visit to our Press Center provides ample testimony to the broad ranging benefits Tech Data offers its reseller customers, including providing technical support for thousands of products, maintaining a host of industry-recognized certifications and answering hundreds of thousands of pre-sales support calls each year.

Doing business with Tech Data gives resellers access to a vast array of technology products, including networking devices, server and storage hardware, notebooks and desktop computers, printers and scanners, HD TVs, cameras, peripheral products and accessories, power devices, as well as operating systems and security, business intelligence and other office productivity software applications. These products are offered in conjunction with a comprehensive range of services, including innovative financing, technical training and industry events, and scores of business-development programs and productivity enhancing e-business tools to help the reseller operate their business more efficiently.

Tech Data’s broad product portfolio and range of services truly make us The Difference in Distribution, but the fundamentals of sound leadership, a strong Code of Ethics and corporate governance have enabled Tech Data to thrive and stand the test of time. We pioneered IT distribution more than three decades ago, and our mission has remained relatively unchanged over the years. A history of innovation has enabled Tech Data to become one of the best-performing and most reliable distributors in the IT channel, building an outstanding value proposition for our reseller customers, vendor partners, shareholders and employees.

This success would not have been possible without the talent and dedication of great employees. Tech Data has garnered a reputation as a great place to work, providing challenging and rewarding careers in the fast-paced technology industry. Nearly 8,000 employees are at the heart of this world-class enterprise, holding diverse positions in sales, marketing, logistics, accounting, facilities, IT and more.
