Datec brings Connect3D to Australia

Datec Asia Pacific is on the hunt for resellers nationwide following its appointment as the supplier of Connect3D products in Australia.

Distributed in the US and Europe by big names such as Avnet and Ingram Micro, the UK-based vendor's range of computer peripherals will initially be available through local distribution company, Datec Australia.

Connect3D is part of the larger worldwide Datec Group.

Datec Australia spokesperson, Arvind Handa, said it made more sense that a sister company took up its introduction into the local market first before passing it on to the big distribution houses.

"We would love to partner with some big disties such as Avnet, Ingram, Synnex or Bluechip IT but it is too early to figure out who will be the best for us," he said.

Handa said the company would initially stock Connect3D USB Pen Drives. It would then look to introduce its large ATI-based graphic card range to the Australian market.

Handa said Connect3D products were suitable for mainstream PC users.

To reach this market, Datec Asia Pacific would be actively seeking medium to large resellers, he said.

"Retailers will be targeted down the track sometime in the new year," Handa said.

As a starting point, he said Datec was hoping to sell about 3000 assorted models per month.
