Quantum spreads distribution wings wider…

Takes peek at Summit. Does over-distribution loom?

Storage firm Quantum said it had appointed Summit, part of the Datrontech group, as a distributor for its products. Summit joins Arrow, Ideal Hardware, C2000, Ingram and RK Distribution in the UK. John Barnes, regional director of Quantum northern Europe, said that while the company is still big in desktops, at the high end it is gaining strength with its Viking and Atlas products. It had appointed Summit to help widen its presence in the UK. He did not say whether Quantum had now completed its distribution strategy. There is now a question over whether Quantum is over-distributed in the UK. One source at a Summit competitor said: "This is not untypical of Quantum". ®
