Technology Distributions Limited (TD) commenced business in May 1999 as the pioneer ICT distributor in West Africa and for over 19 years, has represented a number of global Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) including Microsoft, HP, APC, Samsung, DellEMC, Epson, IBM, Dell, Cisco, D-Link, Huawei, Lenovo, Zinox and Emerson, among others.

As the first manufacturer-accredited local distributor for the sub-region, TD, with the support of the OEMs, successfully confronted the myriad challenges posed by the hither to unstructured market.

Among the first measures was the formulation of a clear policy on the channel of distribution that led to the adoption of the prevailing four-tier market structure comprising Manufacturer (OEM), Distributor, Reseller and End-User. This development, coupled with TD’s high capacity stocking, brought relief to all stakeholders by ending decades of problematic reliance on overseas-based distributors and effectively countering the prevalence of substandard products, thereby driving sales for the OEMs.

Over the years, TD has evolved into a world-class company with fully developed structures, processes and corporate governance. We have effectively consolidated our position as the recognized market leader in West Africa with a network of over 350 Resellers and 150 employees.

TD’s unmatched efficiency levels, customer-focus and market performance have earned multiple recognitions, commendations and awards from our business partners. Our market strength and operational success derived from several elements that blend into an uncommon synergy, including people, strategy, logistics and network.

In 2006, having developed strong competencies and structures to support our growth objectives, we began the implementation of geographic and portfolio expansion strategies aimed at entrenching our market leadership and building an unrivalled distribution network across Africa. This led to the launch of Technology Distributions (Ghana) Limited in April and the commencement of incorporation processes in Sierra Leone, Liberia and The Gambia. We also launched our partnership with Microsoft Systems, Dell and Intel in line with the mission to strengthen the growth of ICT in Africa.

Our PEOPLE, the TD Team consists of well-educated, brilliant, energetic and committed young men and women whose enthusiasm and expertise continues to captivate our business partners and other clients.
