Almasa IT distribution has announced two new vendors to add to its distribution portfolio in the shape of data transport solution provider Molex Premise Networks and mobile communication product provider Mio Technnology. Almasa will be supplying the complete Molex structured cabling range, including the Powercat, RealTime IIM and Canobeam solutions to the entire MENA region, while the Mio DigiWalker GPS/PDA products will be distributed only in GCC-member countries. The Mio DigiWalker was the world’s first GPS-integrated PDA when released in 2003, and was launched in Europe in 2004. Almasa will now introduce it to the Gulf countries. Frank Sheu, CEO of Almasa Distribution, said: “We are very pleased to have signed the distribution agreement with Molex for the MENA region. The distribution agreement with Molex is aligned with our strategic approach, enabling us to offer complete infrastructure solutions to businesses. We are also very pleased to showcase Mio DigiWalker GPS/PDA products not only on our GITEX stand, but also to include them into our distribution portfolio for the GCC region. Before joining Almasa IT Distribution last year, I have worked successfully together with Mio Technology in my previous role. The distribution agreement with Mio shows our commitment to the Channel in providing resellers and retailers with innovative and quick-moving IT products with an interesting margin.” Sonia Chan, regional sales head at Mio Technology, added: “This is a great chance for Mio to tap the Middle East market and we are glad to partner Almasa. We are confident in the quality design, advanced functions and competitive pricing of our products, and I believe that by joining hands with Almasa, we can perform admirably in the Middle East.” Molex Premise Networks is part of Molex Inc, which boasts an annual turnover of US$2.8 billion. The company has recently re-invested over US$1 billion in research at its new product development centres, and possesses 34 regional sales offices and thousands of distribution outlets across six continents. Mio Technology was founded in 2002 and has operations in China, Taiwan, United States, Europe and Japan. It employs more than 6,000 individuals worldwide, including over 1,300 engineers.
