”J Mills has been evolving into a mobility distributor over the last 5 years and I see this as a crystallisation of this process,” says Alan Duncan, J Mills Distribution managing director. “Sektor is well placed to take the business to a new level and the time has come for me to hang up my boots, confident in the knowledge that the Motion businesses is in safe hands," he adds.

Motion Computing's ANZ regional manager Brett Gross saysthe company is "very pleased to welcome Sektor as a Value Add Distributor to the Motion Computing community in the ANZ region". "Sektor’s strong support of its resellers, partners and ISV relationships reflect the model that Motion has recognised globally as our preferred path to market,” he adds.

According to Sektor Distributors ANZ managing director, Rhys Warren, this acquisition is a continuation of the company's investment around mobility and POS. "Motion Computing is an innovative vendor, growing up and, in many markets, leading the emergence of the ruggedised tablet market here. We’re excited about the value our distributorship with Motion Computing will bring in support of our partners."

Sektor will start shipping Motion tablets in New Zealand from May 1. The brand has been distributed in New Zealand by Express Online, which was merged with its sibling company, Express Data, in February.
