Schneider Electric, Mitsumi sign agreement on APC distributorship


Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management, has signed an agreement with Mitsumi Distribution, for the distribution of products of APC by Schneider Electric in Nigeria and Ghana.

Following this agreement, Mitsumi Distribution will be responsible for the distribution of APC’s home, home office, small and large corporation products in Nigeria and Ghana.

According to Ayo Adegboye, vice president, IT business, Schneider Electric Nigeria, Mitsumi Distribution was chosen by Schneider Electric to join its network of distribution partners for Nigeria and Ghana based on its track record in IT products distribution and its wide distribution network in West Africa.

“APC by Schneider Electric provides solutions on four key application areas: home/home office, business networks, access provider networks as well as data centres and facilities. Each of these areas requires customised efforts for products, sales and marketing, but the common theme which is high availability is increasingly essential.

APC is being positioned to be the preferred brand worldwide in all four of these application areas. That is why this partnership with Mitsumi to distribute these innovative products in the key markets in West Africa is essential for APC,” he explained.

Adegboye, while commenting further on the agreement said that it would boost tremendously APC’s ambition to drive the InfraStruXure solution. He explained: “The InfraStruXure design, which integrates power, cooling, rack, management and services, allows the selection of standardised, modular components to create a customised solution.

“This standardisation coupled with the APC Design Portal enables an easily scalable architecture designed to meet changing needs and future expansion. This patent-pending approach provides increased availability, improved adaptability and speed of deployment as well as lowered total cost of ownership for IT environments – from wiring closets to computer rooms to data centers”.
