Altech Computers has established a new office in Adelaide to service the local market.
The 1200sqm facility includes sales, administration, technical and warehouse capabilities and is located at Mile End in Adelaide.
Marketing manager, Kevin Hartin, said the distributor had been servicing the Adelaide market via its Melbourne and Sydney locations.
“Our philosophy is to be where our customers are and we saw an opportunity to get closer and provide a better service by having a local warehouse,” he said.
Chris Potts will head up the South Australian branch. He previously spent four years with the distributor as part of its purchasing team, based in Sydney.
Hartin said it would start off with seven staff manning the branch. The distributor now has more than 200 employees.
“Chris was well credentialed to run our new branch,” Hartin said. “We’re going to add people as we need to.”
