Westcon's distribution agreement with Seagate goes south

19 Mar 13

Westcon and Seagate, the hard drive and storage provider, have ended their current distribution agreement after ten years of business.

Following a review of its distribution model as part of a wider vendor review, Westcon says the decision to make this shift is a reflection of where its business needs to focus.

Subsequently, the company believes that the time has come for the companies to part despite the it's long relationship with Seagate.

“The decision to part ways was a mutual agreement and I am confident that the outcome will be beneficial to both parties," says Dave Rosenberg, managing director NZ, Westcon.

"The company has enjoyed working with Seagate and is ending its agreement after ten years of business, on good terms."

Trade between Westcon Group and Seagate will cease on 31 March 2013, with all warranty from this date forward to be handled by Ingram Micro.
