Logicom adds APC rights in UAE
by Stuart Wilson, Tuesday 10 April 2012
Logicom has extended its Middle East distribution agreement with APC by Schneider Electric to cover the UAE market. Distributor Logicom has held APC rights in Oman, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and Yemen for the last three years and has delivered continuous growth in these markets. APC by Schneider Electric supplies uninterruptable power supplies (UPS), environmental management systems and data centre solutions.
"Logicom is delighted with the renewal of its partnership with APC by Schneider Electric. The move demonstrates their confidence in our ability to help grow their brand across the region," said .
"Since our partnership first began in 2009, Logicom has played an integral role in helping grow the prominence of the APC by Schneider Electric brand. Now that we are part of a select group of distributors for the UAE for APC by Schneider Electric, we are even more dedicated towards managing the expectations of our resellers and their customers," he added.
Logicom has also appointed a dedicated in-house pre-sales engineer whose primary focus is to provide resellers with technical support for APC by Schneider Electric’s line of products. The engineer will also provide resellers with sales and support information.
Logicom plans to focus more on the UAE’s SME channel, reaching out to a base of end-user customers that are ineffectively protected against power fluctuations and would benefit greatly from the protective technology that APC by Schneider Electric provides.
"We are looking forward to continuing our partnership with Logicom; their level of commitment and support for our brand has been exceptional during the last three years," said Olivier Delepine, VP UAE and Gulf countries at APC by Schneider Electric. "We count on our distributors to bring value added services to the table, and we are confident that Logicom will continue growing the APC by Schneider Electric brand."
