Dicker Data and Dell EMC ink NZ distie deal

06 Aug 2018

Dicker Data has been appointed as a New Zealand distributor of the complete range of Dell EMC products including notebooks, desktops, server, storage, networking and peripherals.

The distribution agreement comes into effect today.

“I’m pleased to announce the extension of our partnership with Dell EMC into the New Zealand market,” says Dicker Data Chairman and CEO David Dicker.

“Since taking on their entire portfolio in Australia over a year ago, Dell EMC has quickly become our fastest growing vendor. There is strong demand for the Dell EMC portfolio across A/NZ and I expect our New Zealand business to experience a similar uptake to what we have seen in Australia.”

“Dell EMC is proud to be extending its partnership with Dicker Data into New Zealand,” says Dell EMC A/NZ channels general manager Geoff Wright.

“Since launching in 2016, Dicker Data’s business acumen has been critical to our joint success and they have delivered outstanding growth for Dell EMC. I look forward to taking our NZ business to new heights with Dicker Data.”

The Dicker Data NZ team is now actively positioning Dell EMC with its partner community.

Dicker Data NZ has been in the process of expanding their team after what is reported to be a successful FY18 to date.

This is a is a major move for Dell EMC, which has primarily distributed through Ingram Micro over the last year.

This addition to its distribution network will likely be welcome news to the New Zealand reseller community, allowing greater scope for choice when selling the increasingly popular Dell EMC products.
