Logitech in Saudi Arabia

Read more about Logitech in Saudi Arabia at Saudi Techview.

Currently, Logitech’s only distributor in Saudi Arabia is “Mishaal Alsudairy Office for Commercial Services”. Again with Saudi Arabia technology sites: bad design, redirects to another URL and outdated information (Gitex Riyadh 2007).

You can buy Logitech devices from Jarir Book Store (a book store not selling books? no comment from me there!) but they are overpriced. The other method is to just buy from Amazon and ship using Aramex or myus.

Apparently Logitech was looking for a new distributor in Saudi Arabia according to ITP: Logitech set to appoint new Saudi distributon but that was as old as May 28, 2007 and no new updates.

“We are currently looking at the possibilities of expanding our distribution channel to get closer to the market there as the retail sector is developing so much,” said Robert Van Der Vegte, director Benelux and MEA at Logitech. “Saudi Arabia is the second biggest market in the region so it is time now for us to seriously and professionally go after that market,” he said.

It’s been over a year, Mr. Robert. Have you found a new Logitech distributor in Saudi Arabia already?

Do you use Logitech devices? Feel free to share your experience on their hardware.
