FM Computer Components Joins CENATEK As A Premier Value-Added Distributor And Levigo Systems Becomes CENATEK's General Importer
CENATEK, Inc., the provider of high speed, high performance storage solutions, announced today the expansion of its sales channels to Europe. Agreements with FM Computer Components and levigo systems provide these partners with select status as CENATEK's value-added distributor and general importer, respectively, in Europe.
"CENATEK is pleased to enter the European market with partners who understand solid state disk (SSD) technology, are excited about it, and are willing to help educate their customers about using our products as potential solutions," states Sherri Chien-Niclas, vice president of sales and marketing. "FMCC and levigo were chosen as our key partners for their expertise, enthusiasm, and potential to increase channel and customer awareness of Rocket Drive through other distributors, resellers, OEMs and system integrators."
"Joining CENATEK will make it possible for us to bring cost-effective high performance disk solutions to Europe, especially to Nordic countries," says Albert Sjoberg, CEO of FM Computer Components. "The performance boost achieved and high reliability makes the product indispensable for almost any company."
"As the authorized representative of CENATEK in Europe, levigo is proud to be a part of the great CENATEK team and honoured to establish the market in the EMEA space," says Ahmad Masrieh, CEO of levigo consulting. "Together with CENATEK, our goal is to establish a network of selected partners to bring high-speed solid state technology to the mass market."
"Our mission is to explain the true benefits of the CENATEK Rocket Drive," continues Masrieh. "Today, the Rocket Drive is an add-on PCI device - but its unique core interface design and highly integrated technology allow it to be part of any device which requires high speed and I/O-intensive storage access based on the standard ATA/ATAPI interface. This will give partners and customers the foundation to create their own custom solutions with CENATEK Rocket Drive products and technology and to achieve a competitive advantage for their own business."
As the general importer and authorized representative, levigo will act as CENATEK's European counterpart and manage any legal issues, regulations, and certifications required for selling Rocket Drive in the EMEA space. CENATEK's channel partners will also work with levigo to fulfill orders for their customers in Europe.
Oliver Bausch, CEO of levigo systems, adds, "levigo systems is already planning to extend our distribution business. CENATEK's Rocket Drive and upcoming products fit perfectly in our strategy to focus on selected products for distribution. Additionally, levigo systems plans to offer special appliances powered by pre-configured, built-in Rocket Drives, and optimized for intensive I/O-bound applications, as designed and supported by our Engineering team."
FMCC and levigo are offering an Introductory European Promotion through the end of June 2002. For pricing and availability please contact them as requested below.
