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.

Sponsorship plays a key role to enable the next generation of ICT professionals

We partnered with The SAME Foundation to renovate, rebuild and fully kit out the Computer Applied Teaching (CAT) Lab for the Diepsloot Combined School.

In the world of digital disruption, ICT needs passionate young people to shape and change how we engage with technology, and the CAT lab will play a key role to enable the next generation of professionals.
