Dicker Data appointed as Kyocera distributor

13 Jul 2018

Dicker Data has been appointed as a distributor for the full range of Kyocera’s award-winning A3 and A4 ECOSYS print and consumables solutions in the Australian market.

The new distribution agreement came into effect last Thursday.

“I’m pleased to be announcing our new partnership with Kyocera,” says Dicker Data chairman and CEO David Dicker.

“We’ve been successfully servicing the print market in Australia for many years and the addition of Kyocera will result in more choice for our partners. Furthermore, Kyocera’s leading partner program will enable our committed print partners to enjoy above-average profitability across the range that we’re now distributing.”

“I am extremely excited to expand our distribution footprint by partnering with Dicker Data, both parties have experienced impressive growth in recent years and I believe our strong product portfolio coupled with our reseller programs will complement Dicker Data’s already successful business model,” adds Kyocera Document Solutions managing director David Finn.

This is the second major vendor that Dicker Data has announced recently, adding Commvault to its portfolio in May this year.

“I’m pleased to announce our new partnership with Commvault,” Dicker said at the time of the announcement.

“We see an opportunity to introduce Commvault to our existing partners and to leverage all of their alliances with our current vendor portfolio to drive increased sales in the mid-market and enterprise segments.”

Recently, Dicker Data was recognised by HPE as the Asia Pacific Top Coverage Growth Distributor of 2018, as well as by WatchGuard Technologies as Distributor of the Year.
