Internet Security Threat Report 2014

More doom and gloom for Datrontech Group this week as it laid off 15 staff.

Most of the job losses came in the components and storage divisions. Three sales and marketing staff and one purchaser were made redundant at Datrontech UK. Other job losses included two sales and marketing staff at Summit Peripherals, two IT support staff, and three staff at its warehouse in Rugby.

This leaves the Basingstoke-based distributor with less than 200 staff in the UK.

According to Allan Mack, Datrontech group COO: "Sales are behind expectations, so we don't need so many people."

He stressed that business had not picked up as expected after Y2K across the industry. He pointed out that traditional UK IT heavyweights such as Computacenter and Action Computers have issued profit warnings this year.

Datrontech also saw some management changes this week - James Morgan, former Datrontech UK MD, has gone to head up Datrontech division Data Connectivity. He has been replaced by Robin Falconer, who will add the role to his current job of general manager at Datrontech Retail.

Datrontech's CEO Ray Peck, who took over from Mark Mulford in April, is currently on compassionate leave from the company. There is no date for his return, said Mack. ®
