D&H DISTRIBUTING EXPERIENCES DOUBLE-DIGIT GROWTH DURING THE 2017 HOLIDAY SEASON

HARRISBURG, PA – January 29, 2018 – D&H Distributing, a major provider of SMB and consumer technologies to the North American high-tech channel, announces it experienced double-digit overall sales growth in the consumer electronics sector during the 2017 holiday season. Growth was marked in categories that lend themselves well to the rent-to-own market. These include video gaming hardware, which increased 56%; televisions, which grew 13%; and notebook computers, which grew 17%.

The distributor experienced 7.4% growth overall across North America in its Fiscal Year 2018 thus far, which began in May. These growth trends contributed to a profitable year for D&H, one in which the company has been aggressively recruiting new personnel and accelerating its vendor-based programs to drive sales as it begins its 100th anniversary year.

In addition, D&H was recently recognized by high tech news publisher TMC (Technology Marketing Corporation) with a “Tech Culture Workplace Excellence Award.” This was based on a review of D&H benefits and internal offerings, including its ESOP stock ownership program, its “D&H Cares” internal charity foundation, 401K matching, and other advantages that go beyond the standard company benefits plan.

The TMC award “honors organizations committed to continuously improving the work-life balances of their employees including, but not limited to, growth potential, onsite culinary and recreational benefits, team building atmosphere, flexible hours, tuition and training programs, and attractive investment options.”

“This has been an exceptional year for D&H, one that reflects our ongoing commitment to our customers and to our team,” said AndrÃ????Ã???Ã??Ã?© Lalande, senior director of D&H’s Home Entertainment division and the RTO market. “We will continue to develop business for rent-to-own store owners and dealers, helping them become more competitive by leveraging a diverse assortment from a one-stop-shopping resource partner.”

Top Growth Categories, September to November 2017 (year-over-year)
