Kingston names top Saudi Arabian partners

by Stuart Wilson, Wednesday 27 April 2011

Memory products vendor Kingston Technology has named its top performing partners in Saudi Arabia. Based on sales volumes, quality of service and customer commitment, retailer HyperPanda and reseller PC Time both received awards from Kingston for their performance during 2010.

PC Time, a Jeddah-based reseller which manages the distribution of Kingston’s memory products, solid state drives and USB flash drives to other resellers and SMB across Saudi Arabia, picked up the title of reseller of the year. HyperPanda earned the retailer award for the volume of Kingston products it managed to shift.

Kingston works with four distributors across Saudi Arabia: Logicom, Mindware, Empa, and FDC. PC Time achieved a 53% year-on-year growth in sales of Kingston products in 2010. (The vendor did not disclose if this was a revenue growth or simply based on number of units sold)

“Saudi Arabia is the fastest-growing market in the Middle East for memory products, due to the tremendous demand for mobile phones, cameras, PCs and other technology in addition to memory upgrades. Due to our partners’ understanding of customers here and their needs, Kingston has become a leading choice ahead of less secure, robust memory offerings,” said Hani Suwwan, business development manager for Saudi Arabia at Kingston Technology.

“PC Time and HyperPanda have distinguished themselves not only through the volume of Kingston products which they have supplied to our customers, but also for the quality of their service and their commitment to understanding and benefiting consumers in the Kingdom,” Suwwan added.

Osama Mallisho, corporate sales director at PC Time, said: “Every quarter, Kingston is innovating and shipping new memory products, such as the special edition of HyperX T1, to Saudi Arabia, and these solutions have been crafted to meet the storage, versatility and performance needs of customers here in the Kingdom.”

Rami Rajab, electronics unit director at HyperPanda, added: “Our customers are queuing up to buy the latest mobile phones, including Android smartphones and BlackBerry devices, high-definition cameras and tablet PCs as soon as they reach our shelves. Kingston’s memory devices are an ideal fit to enable storing, traveling with and sharing the content that makes these technologies so compelling for Saudi users.”
