Toshiba and its Australian distributor Dicker Data today announced they will be extending their long-standing relationship, with Dicker Data distributing Toshiba computer products in the New Zealand market.
To date, ASX-listed company Dicker Data has solely served the Australian market for Toshiba. Dicker Data also distributes information technology products from vendors such as Lenovo, Hewlett-Packard, Samsung and ASUS.
“Our relationship with Toshiba has been in place for over 25 years and is one of the most successful partnerships we have,” said David Dicker, chairman and CEO of Dicker Data. “Their continued support of our business is greatly appreciated and I’m proud to be leading our charge into the New Zealand volume market with them. The integrations and expansion of our NZ business is integral to our successful future.”
Toshiba is looking to develop and grow its existing business in the New Zealand marketplace alongside Dicker Data.
“We are excited to expand our relationship with our long-term partner Dicker Data to include New Zealand; they were a clear choice for this next step,” said Rob Wilkinson, GM Toshiba Information Systems (Australia). “We know that they will represent the Toshiba brand at the same high level they have done in Australia and we are sure that Dicker Data NZ will deliver and grow our business in New Zealand.”
“Our success is fundamentally aligned with our partner’s success as the vast majority of our business is channel focussed,” Wilkinson added.
The announcement takes effect from 1 April 2015 and Toshiba computer products are in stock and ready to ship today from Dicker Data New Zealand.
