Systemax is restructuring its Simply Computers division, shutting down its warehouse ops in Walthamstow and focusing all logistics at Greenock. There's around 40 job losses.

Last month, the company outsourced Simply's PC building business to UK Configuration Centre (UKCC)of Bishops Stortford. Both moves follow a strategic review to "enhance the future growth of the Systemax PC brand", the company says in a press release.

Walthamstow was too pokey for the task, and it's tough making money building PCs these days. Systemax says it will retain and increase Simply's sales team in North London.

The company operates also Misco and Globaldirect brands in the UK and claims 750 staff in the UK (1,400 in total in Europe). ®
