Amersfoort, the Netherlands, January 4, 2007
Ergotron, the global leader in complementary mounting solutions for LCD's, notebooks and large displays has signed a pan-European distribution agreement with Tech Data Europe. The agreement gives Tech Data's reseller customers the opportunity to add more value and improve their margins through the sale of add-on display mounting solutions.
The agreement extends the successful relationship that has been developed between the two companies in the US. During the last year, Ergotron's sales through Tech Data have grown by 25 per cent and the two companies will work to repeat this success in Europe.
Ergotron makes mounting solutions for a number of leading PC systems vendors and has a rapidly growing presence in the channel with its own-branded products. With ergonomics, the working environment, and employee health and safety all high on the agenda for most organisations, the Ergotron product range has a very strong appeal at the present time, says Reza Hornarmand, Director of Business Development EMEA for Tech Data.
"Tech Data is very excited about the prospects for Ergotron in Europe. Its solutions offer comfort, safety and style. They also give the user more flexibility and save space thus enhancing productivity. For resellers, the Ergotron range represents an excellent opportunity to deliver added value to their customers and make excellent margins for their business."
John van der Veld, Vice President of the Ergotron EMEA Business Unit comments: "We are delighted to be working with Tech Data in Europe. With its advanced logistics and distribution systems and growing footprint throughout Europe, Tech Data can help us to raise awareness of Ergotron solutions, and the benefits that they can deliver to both business and home users."
With solutions for stand-alone flat panel screens, for notebooks and large-format LCD and plasma displays, Ergotron's range presents resellers with many different opportunities for add-on sales, Honarmand adds. "Whether it's for computing, or relaxing in front of the big screen, Ergotron's mounting solutions are compact and flexible. They increase usable space and their ergonomic design and ultimate adjustability enables them to fit into any environment."
