Motorola Australia appoints Connector

17 Aug 10

Motorola Australia has appointed Connector Systems as a distributor of its wireless network solutions in New Zealand.

The deal was announced at a special lunch today (so special we’re not even allowed to say where it was) where Motorola execs said they now aim to expand the firm’s distribution network to better service partners and resellers in New Zealand.

"We selected Connector Systems because of its extensive channel experience across various vertical markets. We believe the team is well positioned to grow business opportunities with Motorola.”

Connector’s coverage of New Zealand also played a major part in the deal and Dasent said that he’ll soon be adding two new members of staff to its Christchurch operations.

"Our goal is to be recognised as the leading specialist value added distributor for wireless technologies and solutions in the country,” said Dasent, citing Motorola as the company’s biggest brand signing to date.

Motorola is also distributed by Ingram Micro's Vantex division though the wireless networking portfolio is exclusive to Connector.
