Schneider Electric has appointed Dicker Data as a new distributor in New Zealand, replacing Ingram Micro in the local market.

The new partnership agreement now allows Dicker Data to distribute APC by Schneider Electric's solutions and service to channel partners on both sides of the Tasman.

“Dicker Data is an expert and focused distributor enabling Schneider Electric’s IT Division to reach new markets. We’re confident this partnership will expand our customer exposure and help us access a target audience in the New Zealand marketplace.

“The new distribution landscape in New Zealand will best serve our aspirations for future growth.”

In September, Kanagaratnam said APC by Schneider Electric will launching a new partner program in New Zealand, designed to ensure the channel remains profitable across the vendor's wider portfolio.

“We look forward to growing APC by Schneider Electric’s market share in all segments and increasing the profitability of our partners in New Zealand.”
