Tech Pacific joins Prion as a national distributor of Toshiba's line of mobile computing products. The manufacturer maintains a network of regional distributors and will continue to distribute its products in New Zealand solely through Origo.
Although IDC figures indicate Toshiba maintains its leadership in the notebook market in Australia with 28 per cent market share, Toshiba's Rebecca O'Flaherty reports the manufacturer saw the link-up with TechPac as a crucial ingredient in its expansion plans.
"Our current network of distributors has done an excellent job for us. We've worked with them for many years," O'Flaherty told ARN. "However, our growth figures indicate the broader distribution TechPac offers us will bring us a stronger market share. The bottom line is that we intend for TechPac to complement our existing distributors, not replace them."
