Agreement With Tier-One Canadian National Distributor Addresses Increased Customer Demand for High Availability Load Balancers and ADCs for Business-Critical Applications
Yesterday we were delighted to announce SYNNEX Canada, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), as our national distributor in Canada to satisfy the large increase in demand for our LoadMaster load balancer and application delivery controllers, offering our full line of hardware and virtual-based load balancing appliances.
The agreement provides SYNNEX Canada’s large network of resellers with access to KEMP’s family of load balancers from coast to coast and broadens its availability to national resellers. SYNNEX Canada’s strong Unified Communications practice and its long-standing relationship with Microsoft, selling its Lync voice systems, give Canadian resellers the ability to offer complete solutions around an ecosystem of products.
Supporting rapid growth
In the past we have worked directly with Canadian resellers, but as we have grown, both the resellers and KEMP required the national base of support SYNNEX Canada provides to serve the burgeoning load balancer market in Canada.
In the past two consecutive years, KEMP has doubled its revenues in Canada. KEMP’s agreement with SYNNEX Canada follows the company’s recent expansion into other global markets. KEMP currently has three global headquarters that include New York for the US, Ireland for EMEA and Singapore for Asia-Pacific Japan.
“We are continuing to expand our global footprint while making sure we are supplying exceptional load balancing solutions with full support to our customers” said Dave Hickey, VP Sales at here at KEMP Technologies. “We understand the importance of having a strong channel focus in Canada in order to reach new customers. Having a two-tier channel strategy through a reputable partner such as SYNNEX Canada is key to achieving our goals. Our joint collaboration is a natural follow-on to our recent investments in Canada.”
