Belkin has opted for an exclusive distribution arrangement in New Zealand, with Ingram Micro now the exclusive local distributor.
Ingram Micro previously had a non-exclusive deal with Belkin.
Gary Bigwood, Ingram Micro New Zealand managing director, says the distributor is ‘seriously delighted’ by the opportunities presented by the elevation of the partnership to exclusive status.
“As the exclusive distributor, Ingram Micro can concentrate on delivering the full range of Belkin products and supporting our resellers to further develop and expand the market,” Bigwood says.
“Belkin is the perfect fit for our partners because the breadth of the range makes it easy for them to select product sets which are optimised for their clients requirements,” he adds.
Stephanie Ogden, Belkin ANZ managing director, says Ingram Micro’s channel is ‘both wide and deep’, enabling the vendor to expand its presence and further grow its market share.
“Recent global announcements, including the iPhone launch, have continued to showcase our ability to quickly deliver innovative, high-quality solutions to market,” Ogden says.
“Coupling this with a partner who brings extensive local reach, so these solutiosn are seen equally as quickly by end consumers, is paramount to the future success of our business,” she adds.
Today’s announcement comes amid a range of new deals for Ingram Micro New Zealand, with the distributor announcing yesterday that it has added Microsoft Azure to its Kiwi Cloud Marketplace, while on Monday it said it had signed to bring Blue Medora’s enterprise visibility offerings to market.
The distributor also announced on Monday the appointment of Adam Peden to the new role of New Zealand general manager of retail sales.
