Anixter Q1 2011 Security Sales Results Examined

Author: John Honovich, Published on May 28, 2011

In this note, we examine the security sales results and growth of Anixter for Q1 2011. While Anixter is traditionally a large scale distributor in the cabling and electronics market, their security presence has increased significantly in the last few years. Q1 2011 was the first full quarter after the acquisition of Clark Security Products (paying $36.6 Million for a company with $115 Million in sales - primarily for door and access hardware). The combination of Clark Security and organic growth in their security division combined for a 38% increase year over year.

A few key highlights from the Anixter Q1 2011 investor's call
