Australia-based distie giant Dicker Data has expanded its agreement with connectivity accessories vendor StarTech.com to include Aotearoa New Zealand.
The expanded agreement will initially see the distie offering 100+ StarTech products. More will be added in the coming months. The focus will be on products for the front office such as multiport adapters, display adapters, cables, and display mounts.
“StarTech is an integral part of our goal to provide our resellers with all of their requirements in a single transaction saving them time. We are looking forward to helping our resellers realise additional opportunities to enhance their end-user relationships,” says Dicker Data NZ hardware general manager Richard Harri.
Dicker Data’s expertise in the New Zealand market combined with StarTech.com’s broad portfolio of connectivity accessories will provide IT professionals in the region with improved access to products they need to build reliable technology solutions, a statement from Dicker Data said.
The products are designed to meet the technical performance needs of IT professionals and include support for over 200 technologies and connector types ranging from Thunderbolt 4 and USB-C to legacy products.
“We’re very excited at StarTech.com to expand our partnership with Dicker Data,” said StarTech.com global channel sales vice president Xiomara Carrillo. “Celebrating our successful partnership in Australia, we’re delighted to extend our connectivity solutions portfolio to New Zealand.”
Emerging markets regional director Daniela Mota added, “We are pleased to continue our partnership with Dicker Data in New Zealand. Dicker Data’s local knowledge and expertise is a competitive advantage, offering StarTech.com the opportunity to enhance its availability across the region, serving the IT Professionals and resellers more effectively."
In August last year, Dicker Data acquired Auckland-based Exeed Group for $68 million making it New Zealand’s second-largest IT distributor.
In the 12 months ended 31 December 2021, it reported revenue of AU$2.5 billion (NZ$2.66 billion), a 24.2 percent year over year increase from AU$2 billion, and net profit after tax of $73.6 million, a 28.6 percent increase from AU$57 million in 2020.
