Tech Data wins IBM euro-storage gig

New territories include UK

IBM has awarded disk drive storage franchise rights to Tech Data through out EMEA. New territories include the UK, the Czech Republic, Israel and the UAE.

Tech Data Europe will drive the Deskstar and Travelstar HDD business through its Swiss-based European PC components division. This will meet the needs of pan-European systems integrators, according to the distie giant. In our book, pan-European system builders are very few and far between and tend to have global names such as Dell and Compaq and HP and Fujitsu Siemens.

All IBM product through Tech Data Europe will ship from its Belgium warehouse. Local operations will also hold stock, so don't panic. ®
