Seagate signs ECS for Egypt distribution
Former Samsung hard drive distributor transitions to Seagate
Seagate has announced the appointment of ECS Distribution as an authorized distributor for Egypt.
ECS will distribute Seagate internal and external hard drives for the retail market, on a non-exclusive basis.
The distributor was previously a distributor for Samsung hard drives, a business unit which was acquired by Seagate last year. Three other ex-Samsung distributors were also transitioned to Seagate partnerships for the wider EMEA region.
"These new partnerships will broaden the availability of Seagate's products in key EMEA markets and will enable customers in these markets to have convenient access to our industry-leading storage solutions," said Mark Whitby, Seagate's vice president for EMEA Sales and Marketing. "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. With their understanding of local market characteristics and requirements, these four new distributors are well placed to take advantage of these opportunities to grow their business and Seagate's business in the region."
