TD, HP present cars to resellers

The management of two Information Technology (IT)-driven companies in the country, Technology Distribution (TD) and Hewlett Packard (HP) Nigeria, have concluded a joint promotion, which saw two resellers emerging at the event held at Ikoyi-Lagos.

The two winners were Messrs Computer Warehouse Group (CWG) and Alhaji Nasiru, an Ibadan-based bulk purchaser.

While CWG won in the IFF category, Alhaji Nasiru who was absent at the occasion, was the luckiest in the Image Printer Group (IPG) category.

Congratulating the new winners while presenting the Hyundai Elantra car keys to company representatives, the Country Manager, HP, Dr. Lloyd Atabansi, commended TD for advancing market penetration of HP products and described it as one of the top distributors that deserves applause.

Welcoming the guest earlier to the occasion, chairman of TD, Dr. Leo Stan Ekeh said that it has been good doing business with HP.

He reiterated on the philosophy of TD, saying its embedded in the believe that Nigeria must lead among equals.

TD, he said, is currently evolving lots of investment and is faced with major expansion programmes, which would be completed in the next couple of months.

“In the next two months, TD would have new face,” he affirmed, adding that TD United Kingdom (UK) has been doing very well and TD Ghana also is not left out of recording some progress.

Dr. Ekeh described Nigeria as most emerging market in the world based on its population.

He noted that though IT market is becoming more competitive, but TD is not one of those Nigerian companies that would fizzle out.

He asserted that as far as HP remains the first in IT hardware, TD would also remain number 1, because TD is deploying the best hands in the industry in the country and any other place it has operation.

He promised that TD would not disappoint Nigerians and its customers particularly.

Dr. Ekeh further advised resellers to restrategise by investing about 50 per cent of their income in businesses and be reliable, just as TD looks forward to having more resellers in the country and beyond in the coming years.

He did not forget to appreciate again HP for supporting TD over the years.
