VIP Computers has announced that it has been appointed as an authorised UK distributor for hard drive manufacturer Seagate.
Duncan McAuley, purchasing director of VIP Computers, said: “We are delighted to be launching with Seagate. This is a massive vendor acquisition for VIP and one that we have been working towards for four years.
“A direct relationship on hard drives has been the missing element for VIP and will strengthen our offering considerably.”
Under the agreement, VIP will now have a wider range of products, increased stock holding, and all purchases made through VIP will qualify for customer incentives through any future Seagate partner programs.
Mark Whitby, vice president of EMEA Sales and Marketing, Seagate, said: “This is an exciting time in the storage industry with rapidly evolving opportunities in many markets including mobile computing, cloud computing and solid state storage. VIP’s understanding of the local market will be instrumental in capitalising on these opportunities to grow both our businesses in the UK."
