Comztek and HP have further cemented their relationship with the announcement that the distributor now has the rights to HP's networking and services products for East Africa.
This is the third announcement in less than a year in which the relationship between the two companies have strengthened: the first in August 2010 for the South African distribution rights and the second in April this year around the rights for Southern Africa.
In terms of the agreement, Comztek’s resellers and customer base within East Africa (Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Seychelles, Somalia, Tanzania and Uganda) will now have access to the HP networking products and services range.
Says Tiens Lange, Comztek’s business unit manager for Rest of Africa: “The successes that we have had with HP is largely due to the fact that Comztek’s mandate for the brand is a very focused one.
“Comztek has an undeniably strong position within the networking arena that complements HP’s channel centric model. The distribution rights for HP across East Africa will further enable us to expand our performance in South and Southern Africa to a further eight African countries and will allow us to provide a stronger offering for the SMB and mid-market tiers.
