Samsung, currently the high-flyer in the local printer market, has appointed Kolok as its second official consumables distributor.
Piers Proctor, Samsung printer division manager, says that Kolok – with its national footprint – was a logical choice.
“Due to the high growth in Samsung printer sales, the need for a second national consumables distributor became evident at the beginning of 2009,” Proctor says. ”It was also absolutely essential for Samsung to increase its consumables availability nationally. I believe the appointment of Kolok will have significant benefits to the brand and its long-term objective of being the number one printer brand in SA.”
Kolok will be authorized to supply the full range of both Samsung retail and B2B supplies.
"We’re really excited about this as 95% of our business is best of brands in ink and toner cartridges," says Kolok's Alan Thompson. "Samsung is an exceptionally strong brand in the market. We now have direct access to what is already a household brand and with Kolok’s national infrastructure and broad customer base, we can take the Samsung products to new heights.
"Sales to date have been phenomenal," he adds.
