With a century of commitment to South Africa between them, Proline Computers and Blue Bulls Rugby have announced a new partnership.

Proline Computers has signed a three-year sponsorship of the Vodacom Bulls Super Rugby team as official IT supplier and partner.

The amount of the sponsorship was not disclosed.

Arnold Fourie, CEO of Pinnacle Holdings, comments: “The management team at Pinnacle Africa is delighted to be part of the Vodacom Bulls family and see this as a great opportunity to use Loftus Versfeld and the team as the launch pad for our rebranding of the Proline range of computers.”

Proline notebooks, ultrabooks, tablets and PCs are manufactured by Pinnacle Africa in a ISO 9002-certified assembly line capable of producing up to 15 000 units per month.

These machines are truly South African and are designed for the harsh temperatures and dusty conditions of Africa.

Pinnacle Holdings has been in business as an IT distributor for 25 years, while the Blue Bull celebrate their 75th birthday this year.

The first official game of the season will be on 22 February at Loftus Versfeld between the Vodacom Bulls and DHL Stormers.
