The shareholders and management of the VIP Computers Group have decided to make a controlled exit from the MENASA (Middle East, North Africa and South Asia) markets.
VIP said in a statement: "This move reflects the company’s desire to redirect resources and increase focus on core markets across Europe and USA, where the group is positioned as a system manufacturer as well as a broadline distributor.
"The MENASA operation of the VIP Group, headquartered in Dubai, has remained profitable after its first year on the market, and was able to build recognition and a sound reputation within a short period of time. The local team, led by Managing Director Harprit Singh, created a strong channel for storage products, and diversified from the group’s business model.
"Harprit Singh will be joining hands with Falcon Technologies, a European company specialising in storage, ensuring that he and his team can provide business continuity to the customer base of VIP in the region. We wish him continued success in his future endeavors."
All after–sales support will continue to be provided by VIP Computer Centre Limited in the UK.
