Quantum signs CCL as distributor in Kenya
Mobile devices brand poised to expand its presence in East Africa
Quantum, the OEM mobile device brand and manufacturer of tablets, smartphones and 2-in-1 notebook PCs, has appointed Compute Continuum Ltd (CCL) trading as BJ's, as its authorised distributor in Kenya.
According to the vendor, the signing of Kenya-based CCL will broaden its footprint in East Africa with the distributor granted rights to supply Quantum's products to all retailers and resellers in Kenya and the surrounding countries including Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Rwanda and Burundi.
Quantum said it's poised to expand its distribution reach into Kenya adding that after a successful meeting at DISTREE Africa in June, the company struck an agreement to appoint CCL.
The company said BJ's is in the business of retailing and distribution of IT and home entertainment consumer goods, based in Nairobi, Kenya.
Osama Mekawy, distribution manager at Quantum Global, said: "We are delighted to see that the deal struck earlier in June has come to fruition with the official signing of Compute Continuum Ltd as our distributor in Kenya. The deal will help Quantum to broaden its reach in the wider East African market and contribute to developing the channel in the market."
Mekawy added that the company is also in the process of qualifying CCL as a Quantum Authorised Solution Provider (QASP) partner that will help the distributor to provide comprehensive after-sales support.
Mekawy continued that: "Quantum wants to have a distributor in each country that is also capable of providing post-sales service for our products through the QASP programme. We have agreed on the products and pricing. CCL will take the full range of Quantum tablets and we will then look to extend the agreement to cover Quantum smartphones soon."
Mekawy explained that Quantum is very pleased to have come to an agreement with CCL, a retailer that plans to extend its presence in Kenya and beyond in East Africa. "We expect the first Quantum products to be shipped to CCL this month."
Omar Bajabe, managing director, Compute Continuum Ltd, added that: "CCL is very excited to be the official Quantum distributor and we believe that the quality of Quantum products will help overcome the barriers of entry in an already very competitive market. CCL has always created an edge against competition based on its service provision and Quantum products will play a big role in extending that edge."
