Seagate spells out Middle East channel changes

Filed under: News — Tags: , , , — Khaled A. @ 7:49 pm

Seagate outlines its plans the channel structure in the region after aquiring Maxtor.

In terms of distributors there will be six in the [Middle East] region selling both the Seagate and Maxtor product lines … ESAP in Saudi Arabia and Almasa will sell Maxtor lines only while both Delta and Jarir will operate as retail distributors.

This is good, I hope to see more competition to the dominant-in-Saudi-market Western Digital. But from the looks of it, Jarir are always overpriced (bought a mouse that I found for 100SR less at Best). As for ESAP, I never heard of them before, the only info I found about them is the number found here). (Source: ITP)
