Irish distie grabs Advent

Office Supplies R Us

Irish distributor DCC has bought Advent Data Limited – the Leeds-based office consumables supplier.

Advent employs 111 people and made a profit in 2010 of €4.5m on turnover of €150.1m. Advent flogs printer cartridges and other office supplies; it claims to more than £10m in stock at its Elland warehouse.

DCC, made up of five divisions which distribute just about everything from IT and entertainment kit to food, drink and fuel, employs 8,000 people.

Advent will join DCC's Sercom division, which trades in the UK as Micro-P.

DCC's statement on its purchase of Advent is here. ®
