PC repair outfit to open business in Saudi Arabia
Repair and spare parts management specialist targets KSA after forming joint venture with Jordanian integrator
One of the EMEA region's most prominent IT repair firms claims it is preparing to launch an operation in Saudi Arabia after finalising an agreement with Amman-based Computer & Communications Systems (CCS) to create a new entity.
Germany-based LetMeRepair says its Middle East and Africa division has established a joint venture with the Jordanian Microsoft and Oracle integrator in a move designed to strengthen its presence in the regional market place.
The company insists the tie-up will provide both companies with a mechanism to enhance their service capabilities in the respective markets they serve.
LetMeRepair hasn't revealed exact details of its plans for Saudi Arabia, but is promising to launch an organisation that will offer high-level turnkey solutions and services to IT vendors, channel companies, corporate and ministries.
"While always advancing the growth of all our service offerings, we are particularly advocating this on the warranty and managed services side," stated Zuheir Qulaghassi, who has been appointed managing director of the holding company. "The regional experience that CCS brings to the table makes it possible for us to reach our 18-month growth plan realistically and confidently."
Uwe Dominick, managing director of LetMeRepair MEA, said the deal was "closely tied" to the repair and contract assembly outfit's target of expanding its annuity business in the Middle East region.
LetMeRepair has offices throughout Europe and South Africa, and offers a range of logistics, technical repair and spare parts management services. This year it has inked deals to provide after-sales support functions to the likes of Hannspree, Epson and BenQ in Europe. It also landed a contract to provide in- and out-of-warranty repair for HP's consumer PC range in Namibia.
