Moves in the distribution market continue this week, with the news that Axiz has been appointed to carry Samsung's range of LCD monitors.
Axiz has been the official distributor of Samsung South Africa’s hard disk drive (HDD) and optical disk drive (ODD) range for the past five months and this relationship has now been expanded to include the LCD monitors.
Dennis Brett, business manager: IT products at Samsung SA, comments: “Axiz's outstanding reputation is what led to us setting up a partnership with them a few months ago. In this time our relationship has gone from strength to strength and we believe by complimenting the ODD and HDD product range with the LCD monitor range, Samsung’s market share will continue to grow while providing high level expertise to our clients around the country.”
Kobus de Beer, components platform lead at Axiz, adds: “Our partnership with Samsung has been mutually beneficial in continuing to grow Samsung’s market share and strengthening Axiz as a major player in the components portfolio. By now complimenting our distribution to include LCD monitors we will be able to offer a comprehensive Samsung product range to our channel partners.”
The first stock through Axiz will be available to resellers by May 2008.
Samsung monitor services will still be handled by CRT and MTC.
