Avnet Honored for Selling More than One Million Maxtor Hard Drives

7/3/2003 - Distribution specialist Avnet Applied Computing has received the Maxtor Award, a well-earned token of appreciation in recognition of sales of more than one million Maxtor hard disk drives in 2002.

Sukh Rayat, vice president of Avnet Applied Computing Components Europe: "Maxtor is one of our oldest suppliers of hard disk drives. We work together very closely to our mutual benefit as well as to the benefit of our respective customers. Our joint activities are an excellent fit: Maxtor's technological advances ensure that we live up to our motto, First to Market. This award emphasises our excellent relationship. It is a great honour for Avnet Applied Computing Europe and a fitting reward for our sales teams."

Avnet Applied Computing is one of just two distributors in Western Europe who have received this award. Herve Barcelo, sr. director, sales and marketing distribution of EMEA. "Avnet Applied Computing is an important partner for Maxtor, not solely because of its good sales record, but because it has proved to be a reliable partner in both the integrated drive electronics (IDE) and industrial market areas. And Avnet Applied Computing offers our full range of products: SCSI and retail. This approach has many advantages. And it makes Avnet Applied Computing less sensitive to negative developments such as the current contraction of the PC market. However, attractive pricing is not enough; you also have to offer good after-sales support, at which Avnet Applied Computing is very good. Avnet Applied Computing and Maxtor fit together well."
