Graphics board vendor Connect3D is close to completing the third leg of its Middle East channel expansion plan by appointing an in-country distributor in Egypt.

The addition of a local partner, which is due to be finalised within a matter of weeks, will give the vendor in-country distribution coverage in three of the region’s largest markets, including Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Connect3D, which is closely aligned to ATI, has whittled down the list of potential Egyptian candidates to three names and is currently waiting for each distributor to submit their individual business plans.

Although the vendor is keeping the identity of the contenders close to its chest, all three are understood to possess a strong pedigree in components distribution and at least one also has a systems integration operation.

“My target is that everything should be done by the beginning of October. We want to be in a position to be able to announce the appointment before Gitex, but first we must finalise it and then get the goods into the distributor,” revealed Bimal Kaul, regional sales manager Connect3D Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.
