C2000 drives a hard bargain for Fujitsu

HDD deal sees distie push into system builder arena

Fujitsu has signed Computer 2000 to distribute its hard disk drives in the UK. The Basingstoke distributor has become an authorised OEM distribution partner for Fujitsu's range of disk drive products. Computer 2000 is trying to step up its components business to compete in the system builder market, and became a Microsoft OEM distributor earlier this month. It will be competing with Fujitsu's existing hard drive distributors in the UK - Ideal Hardware, Actebis and specialist company AGP. Sven Mahon-Daly, general manager of Computer 2000's components division, said: "We are already quite strong in the storage market. It is one of the largest sections of the components market, and expanding our range is one way of gaining market share." In May, Computer 2000 became a distributor for Fujitsu PCs, notebooks and servers. Computer 2000 also distributes hard disk drives for Quantum and Maxtor. ®
