After 17 years in the distribution game, desktop scanning and imaging distributor Performance Sales has been placed in the hands of administrators.
Last week the company advised resellers that they could only continue trading until current stock ran out, and that no further orders could be accepted.
The distributor which had relationships with channel companies throughout Australia, and representation in New Zealand and Papua New Guinea, was a specialist provider of digital imaging software and media software.
The distributor's specialist nature led to only limited contact with their channel partners. However, resellers such as Adelaide-based reseller BerlinWall's Rob Beaumont have expressed regret at the company's demise.
"It is a real shame, they were really good guys to work with," Beaumont said.
Despite repeated attempts to contact the company, Performance Sales managing director Chris Franklin has refused to discuss the company's predicament with ARN.
