Vanguard wins contract to sell Cyrix CPUs in UK

Will act as rep for CPUs initially

Vanguard has won a contract to sell Cyrix CPUs to the UK market. The news, which leaked out from customers and distributors, means that Roy Taylor, joint MD of the UK-based firm, will initially sell product to UK distributors Flashpoint and Karma. Taylor founded Blue Micro in the UK, a company which acts as an agent to sell IBM microprocessors. In the last few years, Vanguard has operated as a channel for selling memory chips from the Taiwanese firm of the same name into the North European market. He confirmed that a deal had been struck with NatSemi-Cyrix. "It has appointed us to support them in their efforts to promote and sell the Cyrix microprocess range as their representative in the UK," he said. "We're also looking to do the same for them in Scandinavia," said Taylor. Current Cyrix distributors in the UK are Flashpoint and Karma. NatSemi could not be contacted for comment at press time. ® Click for more stories
