Nimans and Rocom ended 2009 with their best monthly sales performance of the year, as the distributors look ahead to the future with renewed optimism – encouraged by the fruits of acquisition which are beginning to blossom.
Both Manchester-based Nimans and Rocom, who were acquired in March 2009, ended the year with a bang – and anticipate the strong performance continuing throughout 2010.
“We’ve spent many months putting in place the platform for both businesses to accelerate forward,” explained Chairman Julian Niman. “We have an executive board covering the main areas of the business, supported by an operational team of key personnel. This is a highly experienced group who understand the needs of our customers and how we are in a prime position to help them drive forward, however challenging the economic conditions.”
Leasing and finance, a dedicated network services division and ‘the best logistics operation in the business’ are some of the major factors in the company’s continued success, according to Julian.
“We are beginning to see the benefits of the fruits of the acquisition which not only give us, but more importantly our customers a competitive advantage in the market.” Julian added. “Sales have been particularly strong with Panasonic and also Avaya where a record £300,000 order was recently won – as many different areas of the business across both brands deliver impressive levels of performance.”
Julian concluded: “2010 represents a great opportunity for us to build on the upward momentum and renewed optimism in the market. We have built a solid trading platform which will hopefully propel us to significant levels of success over the next 12 months. We have the people and product ranges in place – as well as the strength in depth and pedigree, having been successfully operating for the last 25 years.”
