KMS Components has signed distribution agreements with Asus and HKC – partnerships that will broaden the distie’s offerings across two very different sectors.
The distributor will be stocking the full range of motherboards from Asus, which KMS sales manager Steve Bland described as “a perfect fit for our business”.
“All of us at KMS are excited about our new partnership with Asus. We have been waiting for the right partner on motherboards to join our already successful line-up of other products that we offer. We will work together with Asus to grow its market share in the UK as well as create some special bundle combinations that will provide savings for everyone,” Bland said.
Jonathan Parmar, UK component business development manager at Asus, added: “Asus is incredibly excited about the new partnership it has formed. KMS is one of the best strategic partners to expand the Asus brand in the retail channel and through the synergy of this relationship, Asus hopes to greatly increase the breadth of its resale partners.”
In another new partnership, KMS has also been appointed to distribute HKC’s entire line of monitors. According to Kie Cooper, product manager at KMS, the deal is a move to counter the entry-level monitors that he claims have saturated the UK market.
“It is about time a brand has supported customers with a product that does not reflect bad quality with a low price point. HKC offers most of the features that you would expect to get with a mid to highend branded monitor. However it is able to support the channel at a low price point as well.”
