Avnet ACC reported pre-tax profits of $32.7 million for the second quarter ended December 31 1999. This was up on $26.5 million for the previous year on sales up 38 per cent at $2.1 billion. After exceptional costs, pre-tax profit for the quarter was $15.1 million. This included $18.4 million connected with the integration of Marshall Industries – which it bought in October.


Computer 2000 is building a 400,000 square foot warehouse next to its existing facility in Wellesbourne, Warwickshire. The building will quadruple the distributor's warehousing space and expects to be up and running by the end of this year.
