Vertiv Appoints Tech Data as Distributor in Australia

Delivers powerful, easy-to-use, one-stop shopping experience

SYDNEY – 05 March 2019 – Vertiv, a global provider of IT infrastructure and continuity solutions, today announced it has appointed Tech Data as a distributor of Vertiv‘s full portfolio of power, cooling and IT infrastructure solutions and services in Australia.

Tech Data is one of the world’s largest tech distributors and has been named one of FORTUNE’s “World’s Most Admired Companies” for the last 11 years. Vertiv and Tech Data already work closely together in the US, and the Australian relationship is a natural extension to that partnership.

“Tech Data represents several vendors in Australia that are complementary to Vertiv, and as a result, will now be able to bring fuller solutions to their own reseller customers as well as open new business opportunities for Vertiv,” said Robert Linsdell, managing director Australia and New Zealand, Vertiv. “At the same time, Tech Data’s online shop will give Vertiv’s existing resellers access to a more efficient and simpler ordering and logistics process, making it easier for them to service their customers.”

Tech Data – and its IT partners – will have access to Vertiv’s full product portfolio from single-phase UPS, such as the recently released GXT5, to a fully modular solution, Smart Row, and racks and cooling solutions.

“Our new relationship with Vertiv is representative of our strategy to deliver higher value by providing channel partners with innovative end-to-end solutions as they embark on their digital transformation journeys,” said Wendy O’Keeffe, Country General Manager, Australia and New Zealand, Tech Data.

“Vertiv continues to strengthen relationships with IT Strategic Alliance partners, such as Dell Technologies and HPE,” said Daniel Sim, Senior Director, Channel Business (Asia), Vertiv. “The New partnership with Tech Data will enhance relationships with existing partners and broaden our exposure to thousands of IT resellers.”

In addition to appointing Tech Data, Vertiv will continue to work with specialist distributors Comsol, on the Avocent range of consoles and switches, and Orion in the mechanical and electrical sectors.
