Cygnett swims into Tech Data with substance and style

By Simon Meredith | 20th October 2016

Basingstoke, 20 October 2016 – Tech Data is now distributing the range of stylish and practical mobile cases, power packs and accessories from Cygnett. The Australian manufacturer has been building a good reputation and this agreement gives more UK retailers the opportunity to offer the company’s full range.

The Cygnett range includes a wide selection of USB wall, car and portable chargers, smartphone and tablet cases and screen protectors, car and bike mounts, watch and camera accessories. Best-sellers include the ultra-thin ChargeUp Digital 10,000mah portable charger, which looks amazingly stylish and with dual USB outputs, provides rapid charging for two devices, and the UrbanShield case for iPhones with carbon fibre detailing that wraps around the smartphone to provide extra protection without adding bulk.

Simon Hughes, Category Manager for Accessories at Tech Data, said: “The Cygnett range combines substance with style. Its solutions are practical and look great, so they will appeal to the busy mobile users who want good protection or extended flexibility when they are on the move. Its designs are subtly different and offer a degree of individuality you don’t always see with accessories. Cygnett is a big hit in Australia and doing well in the US and North America and we expect that success to be replicated in the UK.”

Jim Williams, General Manager UK and Europe at Cygnett, added: “Tech Data has the best reputation in the IT distribution business and we’re delighted to be working with the company to make the Cygnett’s range available to retailers and resellers right across the UK. Mobile devices are more important to their owners than ever and we see a vast amount of potential in the UK market for our products – potential that Tech Data can help us to address and exploit to the fullest extent.”
