About Tech Data

Tech Data Corporation is one of the world’s largest wholesale distributors of technology products, services and solutions. Its advanced logistics capabilities and value-added services enable 125,000 resellers to efficiently and cost effectively support the diverse technology needs of end users in more than 100 countries. Tech Data generated $36.8 billion in net sales for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2018. It is ranked No. 83 on the Fortune 500® and has been named one of Fortune’s “World’s Most Admired Companies” for nine consecutive years.

Companies like HP, Apple, Cisco. Samsung and Microsoft – and hundreds of others – depend on Tech Data to bring many of their products to market. Without a distribution function, supported by a wide range of technical and business support services, many products you use would never find their way to market, and odds are that the hardware and software in your home or office has passed through our warehouses on its way to market.

  • Our Purpose:
    To continuously satisfy the world’s ever-evolving demand for technology.
  • Our Vision:
    To be the vital link in the technology ecosystem, enabling our channel partners to bring to market the products and solutions the world needs to connect, grow and advance.
  • Our Mission:
    By providing channel partners with reach, efficiency and expertise, we become essential in their ability to meet the evolving needs of the technology market through exceptional service, insight and world-class execution.
