Computacenter has beaten off more than 50 competitors including IBM and ICL, to retain Europe's largest product and services contract, a three year multi-million pound deal with British Telecom.
Computacenter has been the incumbent supplier at BT for the past four years, after winning a similar tender in 1995.
In addition to supplying thousands of desktops each year, the dealer will now provide BT with services including supply chain re-engineering, maintenance and ecommerce development.
Phil Williams, Computacenter investor relations manager, said BT would remain the publicly listed dealer's largest customer but claimed it was too early to put an exact dollar value on the new contract, which commences in October.
By mid afternoon, Computacenter's share price had jumped more than six per cent to 543.5p on the London Stock Exchange.
