Exertis grew 7.8% to £3.913B in revenue for its fiscal year ending March 31, 2020. The company has global reach via its supply-chain services and offices in Europe, North America, the Middle East and China.

DCC PLC ranks among the top companies in market capitalization on the London Stock Exchange in an index known as the FTSE 100.
"Technology distributors are continuously adding new value on a global scale, and the addition of Exertis to the GTDC brings yet more depth, insight and diversity to the organization," said GTDC CEO Frank Vitagliano. "We look forward to their participation and support as we advance awareness of how the distribution industry is transforming in the everything-as-a-service era."
Exertis Group Managing Director Tim Griffin underscored the vital importance of knowledge sharing given the unprecedented speed of change and innovation today. "It's exciting to be part of the GTDC at a time when vendor partners and channel customers are increasingly relying on distributors to deliver more than products," Griffin said. "Knowledge, insight and strong partnerships are the industry's foundation, and we're all responding to extraordinary trends in business as well as society."
