Anglia outgrows market by 5x as it celebrates 45 years

Anglia Components is celebrating its 45th anniversary, having outgrown the market by a factor of five over the last ten years. Anglia’s turnover grew 52.4% between 2006 and 2016, while the market grew just 9.4% in the same period based on ecsn figures.

Steve Rawlins, CEO, Anglia puts its success down to its core business model, which hasn’t changed over Anglia’s history. He said, “We have always been privately owned, retained a UK warehouse and maintained one of the highest levels of inventory in the business. Exceptional service and technical support set Anglia apart, providing the basis for stable and strong customer relationships.”

He continued, "With no outside investors, we have more freedom to make long term decisions, and to partner with our customers to create success for them which is also success for us. We have outgrown the market for the last ten years and are confident that we can maintain that growth to reach £100 million by the time we’re 50."

Founded by Anglia President Bill Ingram in 1972, Anglia is now the UK’s largest privately owned component distributor with an on-target turnover of £60.8 million in 2017. Anglia grew from £35 million to £53 million turnover between 2006 and 2016, which is 52.39% growth. According to the ecsn, the Distribution Total Available Market (DTAM) grew from £859 million to £939 million in the same period, which is 9.4%.
