ANIXTER, the global leader in supply chain and distribution services, today announced that it has won the coveted annual HP ProCurve Award for Enterprise Business. Presented to ANIXTER in recognition of the growth achieved in HP sales over the last 12 months, the honour also acknowledges the value-added services that ANIXTER brings to HP's ProCurve offering, including a technically trained salesforce, a network of leading UK based system integrators and world class logistics capabilities.
As the number one UK distributor of HP's enterprise networking products, ANIXTER enjoys a close and successful working relationship with the company. This status is due to ANIXTER's long-term commitment to developing a mutually beneficial and effective UK channel support structure - ensuring it can provide resellers an industry-leading warranty package for all ProCurve wired and wireless solutions, free HP ProCurve Manager and Firmware updates, free access to the HP Network Design Centre, post sales support and extensive reseller training.
The award acknowledges publicly the success of this strategy - recognising that ANIXTER's dedication has differentiated HP's offering from that of its competitors and positioned it as one of the UK's leading network solutions.
Jon Weatherall, Country Manager UK & Ireland for ProCurve Networking at HP, comments: "ANIXTER was presented with this accolade because of its unparalleled experience and understanding of complex customer networking requirements. It also recognises the high level of advice and support that the company offers consistently to its ProCurve resellers. As a result, HP's relationship with ANIXTER is stronger than it has ever been - indicating that ANIXTER will continue to play a key part in taking new ProCurve products and solutions to our customers in the future."
Rob Henney, VP Communication Sales, Anixter UK, comments: "We are delighted to receive this award in recognition of all the hard work undertaken by ANIXTER's sales and marketing teams, which has resulted in significant growth of the HP business during 2004. In addition to having an excellent product portfolio, HP is a professional, forward thinking supplier partner and we look forward to continued success in 2005 and beyond."
