18 May 15

Ingram Micro has inked a deal to distribute EMC in New Zealand.

The company will distribute the full range of EMC products and services, and Gary Bigwood, Ingram Micro New Zealand managing director, says the distributor is ‘excited’ about the opportunities the deal presents.

“Whether it’s cloud computing, big data, trusted infrastructure or storage, EMC has class leading products across all these sectors and more,” Bigwood says.

“We are absolutely delighted with this appointment and have great plans to work with EMC to rapidly grow its presence in New Zealand.”

Phil Patton, EMC New Zealand country manager, says it is ‘imperative’ the vendor has ‘a high performing and progressive New Zealand distribution partner to deliver EMC technology’ to customers.

“That’s why we selected Ingram Micro.

“Our organisations share similar values and aspirations and we are looking forward to working together.”

The deal extends Ingram Micro’s EMC footprint in the region, with Ingram Micro already an EMC distributor in Australia.

Ingram Micro Australia was named EMC Distributor of the Year at the recent ANZ Business Partner Program Awards.

The deal takes effect on 01 July, following a short ‘transition’ period.
