What makes us different

Our people

Our success is founded on the energy and expertise of our people.

Their ideas and enthusiasm for our company, our vendors and our partners fuels their daily mission to deliver outstanding channel performance. 


Our story

From selling Ethernet out of a garage in upstate New York in 1985 to today’s global business, we have become one of the world’s leading business technology distributors, supporting thousands of partners worldwide. 


Our community

At Westcon-Comstor we actively participate in the communities in which we operate. We partner with local organisations and charities, and we support employees in their volunteering efforts.

How we kept a children’s hospice connected

Our Comstor Germany team delivered a new Cisco Meraki Wi-Fi structure to Berlin-based children’s hospice Sonnenhof, to help speed up and secure its network. As well as the infrastructure, we donated long-term licences and covered ongoing costs incurred by the hospice’s owners, the Bjorn Schulz Foundation.

“The new network hardware and services provided by Westcon-Comstor not only increased the speed of our network, but secured high failure safety. It guarantees high connectivity for our residents wherever they are on the campus. We are delighted with Comstor’s kind support.”

Our awards

It’s good to celebrate success. And we’re delighted that we have plenty of opportunities to do so. We’re immensely proud of our award-winning people. Industry accolades highlight our dedication to vendor and partner success.

But don’t take our word for it. Take a look for yourself.
