Elko adds Lenovo tablet rights in Russia

by Stuart Wilson, Monday 2 September 2013

Emerging markets distributor Elko Group has added Lenovo tablets to its portfolio in Russia. The inclusion of tablets in Russia builds on an existing distribution agreement in place between the two companies. Elko will promote and sell Lenovo Ideatab tablet PCs to its channel customer base in the Russian market.

Elko first started selling Lenovo products in Ukraine in 2009. In January 2013, the cooperation was extended when Elko was appointed as a distributor of Lenovo smartphones in Russia.

Alexey Klochkov, executive director of mobile devices at Lenovo Russia, said: "The development of Lenovo in the market of smartphones and tablets is an important part of our strategy in the PC+ era. That’s why we decided to choose the ELKO Group, our long-standing partner with whom we have good cooperation over the years.”

Klochkov added: “Our signed agreement is a confirmation that we intend in the future to work together to help our companies to not only succeed, but also, first and foremost, to provide customers with high-quality and high-performance devices. We are confident that the increased interaction with Elko Group will strengthen our market position and open up new areas of work.”

Aleksandrs Orlovs, Elko Group distribution director, added: “We are very pleased about the extended cooperation in Russia with Lenovo – a globally renowned personal technology manufacturer. The tablet PC and smartphone market is constantly growing, and, following global trends, we are glad to expand our portfolio with modern and competitive Lenovo products.”

“We are very pleased about being entrusted with ‘pioneer’ status regarding Lenovo’s smartphone business development in Russia starting earlier this year. Now, by also having Lenovo tablets in our product portfolio, we believe that this cooperation will help our partners to meet customer needs even more,” he added.
