Pacific Peripherals has bought Advance Peripherals, merging the two distributors to form Advance Pacific Peripherals.
Advance Peripherals, which was headquartered in Pymble, Sydney, had been serving the PC peripherals market for 16 years. Pacific Peripherals, meanwhile, has been trading for eight years in the Mac peripherals business.
The new company is now positioned to serve all peripherals dealers, says Advance Pacific Peripherals' national sales manager David Jordan.
"It was quite surprising - a lot of our customers were the same, but they were ordering from two separate places because of the different product mixes. Now that we have combined the two, it is a lot easier for our resellers - because now they only have one point of contact," Jordan said.
Advance Pacific Peripherals distributes for more than 20 vendors, including Tandberg Data, Sony, Iomega and Polaroid. Products it supplies vary from tape drives and RAID systems to CD writers, film printers and scanners.
Advance Pacific Peripherals' address is:
Unit 3, 7-29 Bridge Road,
Stanmore, NSW 2048
