The Market

The UK electrical component market was estimated to be just under £2.0bn in FY20 with customers sourcing their components either direct from the supplier or through franchised distributors such as Easby. Easby has a modest share of this distributor market and the investment from NVM will be used to accelerate growth of that position which will be achieved through the further professionalisation of the business as well as complimentary acquisitions. In May 2023, Easby completed its first acquisition under NVM ownership, acquiring Matrix, an electronics kitting and supply chain solutions provider. The deal marks a major milestone in Easby Group’s strategic development to become the independent technical distribution partner of choice, for a full range of added value services across electronics supply chains.


NVM will be an excellent investment partner for the next stage of the journey and I am delighted to be joining the Easby Board.
