Distribution network expands to support evolving market needs
Global education technology company, Promethean, has appointed Ingram Micro, a leading UK distributor of technology solutions, as a new distributor for its ActivPanel range of interactive flat panel displays (IFPDs).
Effective 15th January 2024, the new agreement underpins Promethean’s plans to strengthen IFPD market leadership* by scaling UK coverage and expanding support to meet evolving market needs.
“We are pleased to announce the new relationship with Promethean,” Raj Pandya, Director of Specialty Solutions at Ingram Micro UK Limited, said. “The collaboration between Ingram Micro and Promethean will provide innovative solutions that cater to the requirements of the IFPD industry, serving the market and delivering top quality products throughout the UK.”
Giving Promethean partners increased flexibility and choice, Ingram Micro will work alongside incumbent distributor, Midwich, under a dual-distribution model.
Simon Port, Head of UKI Markets at Promethean, said: “Promethean’s product offering has expanded over the past 12 months.
“With the launch of ActivPanel LX, we’re moving into wider markets and appealing to a diverse budget range. Ingram Micro has an established reseller base that aligns with these target audiences, particularly in the broadline IT space,” he said. “Partnering with Ingram Micro and Midwich gives us the infrastructure to support our partners to be successful, while providing a solid platform for future growth.”
Ingram Micro will stock the full Promethean range with product available for shipping from February 2024.
The appointment of Ingram Micro as a Promethean distributor applies to the UK only. Exertis continues to be Promethean’s exclusive distributor in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
