Tech Data Corporation (commonly referred to as Tech Data) is an American multinational distribution company specializing in IT products and services headquartered in Clearwater, Florida. Tech Data provides a broad range of product lines, logistics capabilities and value-added services that enable technology manufacturers and resellers, such as Apple, Cisco, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Hewlett-Packard Inc., IBM, Lenovo, Microsoft, Sony, Symantec and VMware, to deploy IT solutions.

Tech Data is now one of the world’s largest distributors of IT products and services, generating $27.7 billion in net sales for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2015. The company is ranked No. 108 on the Fortune 500 and one of Fortune’s “World’s Most Admired Companies.”

Founded in Clearwater, FL by Edward C. Raymund in November 1974, Tech Data Corporation marketed data processing supplies for mini and mainframe computers. In 1983, Tech Data began to transition from a reseller to full-line national distributor of personal computer products, a transition led by Steven A. Raymund, Edward's son.

Steve A. Raymund succeeded Edward C. Raymund as Chief Executive Officer in 1986, the same year Tech Data announced its initial public stock offering on NASDAQ (ticker symbol: TECD).

In 2006, Robert M. Dutkowsky was named Chief Executive Officer.

Over the past 20 years, Tech Data expanded its business into Canada, Mexico and Europe by acquiring 18 companies. Some companies acquired included Canadian-based ParityPlus, Paris-based Softmart International, Munich-based Computer 2000 AG, Globelle Canada, UK-based Azlan Group PLC, Actebis AG Switzerland, Nordics-based IT distributor Scribona, Netherlands-based Triade Holding B.V., Specialist Distribution Group (SDG), and Signature Technology Group (STG).

On August 25, 2015, Talkin’ Cloud ranked Tech Data one of the world’s top cloud service providers for the second consecutive year, naming Tech Data No. 24 on the annual list.

In the second quarter of 2015, Tech Data posted record earnings, increasing net income by 22.4% and sales by 8%. Tech Data's data-center business is attributed with the record earnings.

In September 2016, Tech Data announced that it had entered into an agreement to acquire the Technology Solutions operating group from Avnet, Inc. in a stock and cash transaction valued at approximately USD $2.6 billion. Under the terms of the agreement, Avnet received at closing approximately USD $2.4 billion in cash and 2.785 million shares of Tech Data common stock, representing an approximate 7 percent ownership position in Tech Data. The acquisition was closed in February 2017.
