Taxan to flog Asus mobos
System builder deals
Monitor vendor Taxan has struck a deal to sell Asus motherboards in the UK. The deal marks another attempt by Taxan to grow its UK business after failing to launch a PC business last summer.
Taxan sales and marketing director Hugh Chappell said he had struck deals with "a couple of big system builders already" but declined to name them. The company will also supply Asus boards to distributors Ideal Hardware, Micro Peripherals, and Northamber.
This kind of distribution deal isn't totally new to Taxan - it also supplies ATI's graphics adaptors.
Taxan tried to set up a PC business in August last year and poached Mesh general manager Paul Kinsler to head up the business. But its monitor customers weren't happy about buying their displays from a competitor, so it had scrapped the idea by October.
Asus mobos are also sold by SPD, Miniland, and Landmark in the UK. ®
