Easy Computers

Since acquiring the PC manufacturer Easy Computers from liquidators in 1999 for £3,000, managing director Nick Glynne has reinvented the company as a high-volume distributor of laptops from suppliers such as Acer and Sony. It sells 10,000 laptops a month by telephone and through its seven websites, including Laptopsdirect.co.uk. Since June it has sold higher-margin plasma and LCD television sets through DirectTVs.co.uk. The Huddersfield company has boosted sales per employee with the help of new software and this has enabled Easy Computers to grow by 177% a year from £1.7m in 2003 to £35.9m in 2006.
