Networking and wireless vendor Allied Telesis is understood to be restructuring it's New Zealand operations.
In recent years the vendor has been quite successful in both education and local government but has yet to crack the lucrative enterprise market in NZ.
In April last year the company put on an additional four team members nationally, mainly in sales. At the same time they pulled their NZ marketing and appointed an additional three local distributors.
Now just over a year later these new roles are under threat of restructuring and the number of distributors looks certain to reduce. The announcement is expected around the 26th of this month (April 2013).
Sales excluding the large direct contract with the Ministry of Education are thought to represent approximately $2.5 million per annum in New Zealand. It's also understood that revenues have seen little change since the recruitment of the additional sales team members last year.
None of the vendors staff or distributors contacted would comment on the move and messages to Country Manager, Paul Patchelor remain unanswered.
