Warrington, 25 July 2016 – Synaxon UK, the leading channel services group, is breaking new ground for its members through an agreement with TERRA Computer, the specialist manufacturer of high-quality systems and storage products. The partnership will give members access to the company’s wide range of products through EGIS.
TERRA Computer is a subsidiary of the €1 billion Wortmann Group, one of the largest independent computer manufacturers in Europe and a leading player in the hardware and data centre and hosting markets in Germany. The company designs and manufactures a range of desktop PCs, workstations, all-in-ones, notebooks, tablets, thin client devices, and displays. It also produces servers and direct-access, NAS and SAN storage systems.
The UK agreement will aim to emulate the successful partnership between the two organisations in Germany. It is also a prominent provider of cloud services in Germany, offering co-hosting hosting, IaaS, SaaS and backup solutions from its own, Tier 3-certified data centre.
TERRA Computer entered the UK market in 2013 and has grown rapidly. It is 100 per cent channel-only, so resellers can be totally confident in forming a partnership with the company, says Mike Barron, UK Channel Director for Synaxon.
“The TERRA PC brand has grown over the last few years and has huge potential within the UK market place. Partnering with Synaxon will further strengthen that opportunity. TERRA products will be available exclusively to Synaxon members via the EGIS procurement platform, which now boasts over 1.2 million products and is becoming an essential everyday business tool for many of our members.”
Neil Jensen, Managing Director of TERRA Computer, adds: “Synaxon is very well-established and has developed a really great community of partners here in the UK. It was a natural step for us to expand our agreement, which has been so productive in Germany, and take advantage of Synaxon’s presence and reputation to further promote TERRA products to resellers, integrators and retailers. We believe this will be a great partnership and help TERRA to work with more partners, drive growth and become even more successful in the UK”.
TERRA systems are renowned for their high quality and are backed by excellent services and support. All systems are lab-tested for CE compliance and manufactured to ISO9001 standards. They also conform to Blue Angel requirements for energy efficiency, recyclability and ecological safety and health.
