VIP was established in 1990, supplying PC components and peripherals in the UK. The company has enjoyed strong year-on-year growth, which resulted in the acquisition of enthusiast gaming distributor – Realtime Distribution in 2006 (the company subsequently merged with VIP Computers UK 2013). In 2011 VIP acquired CMS Computers, one of the largest desktop and notebook manufacturer in the UK – supplying the hugely popular ‘Zoostorm’ brand. Ergo Computing was then purchased in January 2014, supplying primarily to education and the public sector.

The VIP Group operates from its UK head office in Warrington and offices in the USA and the Netherlands.
