AB Group remains leader in Central and Eastern Europe
For another year in a row, AB Group received the title of “2016 Broadline Distributor of the Year” in Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia. The title is awarded by the prestigious organisation CONTEXT which deals with market analysis and price strategies in the ICT industry in Central and Eastern Europe.
The triple award was received by the Group companies: AB S.A. in Poland and ATComputers in Czech Republic and Slovakia. The award is given on the basis of the outcome of CONTEXT ChannelWatch 2016 survey conducted among over 7.5 thousand resellers in Europe. The survey includes the evaluation of all distributors operating in the CEE region, and is the largest analysis of this type. The resellers evaluate distributors according to key criteria of provided services, which are then weighed by the evaluation of their priority status to their partners.
“Every award is a reason to celebrate, but those given by our partners, with whom we work on a daily basis, are the most satisfying. Last year, we managed to get to the top spot on three markets at the same time: in Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia. There is an old saying in sports that it is much easier to get to the top than to stay there. We have managed that and now we have received the »Broadline Distributor of the Year« title for another year in a row. We have maintained the cutting-edge quality of our offering and services, and we never stop growing. With our annual revenue of over PLN 8.1 billion, we have become the 9th largest European distributor, and have reinforced our position as distribution leader in Central and Easter Europe. The triple “Distributor of the Year” title, for which we are immensely grateful, confirms our belief that the direction we are following is the right one and that the strategy of maintaining dialogue with our Partners is yielding measurable effects,” says Andrzej Przybyło, President of the Board of AB S.A.
AB Group is the largest distributor of IT and utility electronics in Central and Eastern Europe in terms of turnover and number of clients; the annual revenue of the Group is over PLN 8.1 billion. In 2007, AB S.A. acquired 100% shares in ATComputers Holding a.s. - a group of companies from the IT distribution sector operating in Czech Republic and Slovakia which is the largest PC manufacturer in Czech Republic and owner of a computer retail chain.
