US Robotics (USR) has reported record sales of its networking hardware kit after appearing alongside its in-country Platinum partner, e-Tech solutions, at this year’s Infobiz exhibition in Kuwait. Infobiz, which ran from Dec 5th to 8th and was limited to corporate clients, was held in Kuwait city and boasts reports of 10,000 visitors, a phenomenal interest for a country of only two million people. “The USR products are moving so fast, anyone owning a computer shop is asking to stock USR, not anything else. USR products are the fastest moving in the Kuwait market right now,” said Faisal Yaqoob, marketing manager at e-Tech solutions. Kuwait is regarded as the third biggest market the Middle East, after Saudi Arabia and the UAE, for many vendors and distributors, and the Infobiz exhibition is a key factor to driving business into the country. Companies exhibiting spanned the IT and telecom sectors. “USR’s business has increased by around 50% in Kuwait year on year. It was a slow process at first, and it took some time for the market to understand the quality of our products. With high end kit, it can take some time to and get the takeup and exposure in the market but we now see a lot of people now going for the Max G line,” said Sumit Kumar, regional sales manager Middle East and North Africa at USR. The Infobiz event was inaugurated by Kuwaiti communications and health minister Sheikh Ahmed Abdullah Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah. e-Tech solutions was awarded the accolade for ‘best stand’ at Infobiz. “There were a lot of people coming to the stand, and we had a special promotion. We believe our stand was one of the most prominent in the whole exhibition. We have also just got certification for USR’s 9108 and Max G products, approving them by the ministry of communication as suitable for the home, which is a big step forward for us,” said Yaqoob e-Tech is also a distribution partner for Asus (gold partner), Trend Micro and GenX in Kuwait.
