TD seeks healthy competition among PC distributors

Technology Distributions Limited, has warned Nigerians to disregard unwholesome campaign against one of its key partners, Hewlett Packard (HP), seeking healthy competition among firms involved distribution of personal computer and allied products in the country.

The Corporate Communications Adviser to Technology Distributions, Mr. Echika Ezuka, gave this caution at the weekend, saying that HP, the world’s largest technology company operating in Nigeria with a portfolio of printing, personal computing, software services and IT infrastructure, is a reputed firm.

He said that TD has been a major distributor to HP for 10 years and has found the company to be of very high in ethical standards.

“HP is a world-class technology company that is guided by international best practices in her operations,” Ezuka declared.

Also, he said that HP has significantly contributed to the momentum of the ICT revolution in Nigeria through the provision of high quality ICT products and the development of the authorized channel.

According to him, HP’s business model has helped the growth of a reseller cadre that translates into the empowerment of hundreds of thousands of Nigerians.

He further said that HP has distinguished itself, over the years, as a committed crusader against fake, adulterated, substandard and dysfunctional products, even as HP spends a substantial part of her budget on the campaign against fake products and the grey market.

Additionally, Mr. Ezuka said, that HP is a great source of inspiration for Nigeria’s collective aspiration to empower the educational sector in real terms.

On the other hand, he said, TD as the biggest distributor of HP products in Sub Saharan Africa, buying directly from HP, is the channel through which HP makes the highest quality ICT products affordable and available.

Therefore, he urged customers to hold TD responsible for the manufacturer’s warranty and the genuineness of the products. Stressing that recent negative media reports against HP was done in bad faith and should be discountenanced.

Ezuka, who also is a director of TD advocated for healthy competition, asserting that “The surface has not been scratched. There would be no need to hack anyone.”
