Emitac Distribution allays closure rumour
The merger of Emitac's IT and telecoms distribution business will enhance the company's reach, says Mulligan.

Regional distribution powerhouse, Emitac Distribution has dispelled rumours that have been going round the channel circles that the company was winding down operations, after 35 years of serving the Middle East IT industry.

The company has confirmed to Channel Middle East that it has merged Emitac Distribution and Emitac Mobile Solutions to create one of the largest distribution houses in the Middle East region.

Patrick Mulligan, CEO at Emitac Distribution said: "Emitac Group is one of the leading IT organisations in the region, with a number of very successful subsidiaries in its fold."

Mulligan said currently, the group distributes IT products and telecoms kit via two distribution companies: Emitac Distribution and Emitac Mobile Solutions, across 54 countries working with 98 mobile phone operators and more than 1000 distribution partners. "Emitac has decided to leverage its distribution strength by merging the two companies, which will result in the creation of one of the largest distribution companies in the region," he said.  "This move will enhance the product offering to customers and our reach to the regional market."

Rumours about Emitac Distribution's demise from the regional IT market have been rife in the last three weeks.
