Just a few months after the opening of Zycko's offices in Italy and Benelux, the UK-based value-add distributor of best-in-class convergent IT infrastructure solutions, is continuing its global expansion - this time launching offices in Madrid, Munich and Stockholm.
The company, which is going from strength to strength, reporting revenues of $180million for 2007/08, up from $150million in 2006/07, has also opened a new UK based logistics centre. The centre, which is 25,500 square feet, four times the size of Zycko's old warehouse, allows the distributor to keep up with its rapid growth and continue to develop exceptional channel value. The centre will also incorporate configuration, testing and a substantial repair facility.
Nick Moglia, Zycko's group managing director, said: "Zycko is in a unique position delivering real value-add services to VARs, integrators and service providers comprehensively across the EMEA region. "
Nick Moglia added: "The expansion of our offices in local areas is essential in order to meet our customer's needs. We are extremely excited about our new office in Madrid as we already have many Spanish customers requiring the full range of Zycko's award winning services."
Each new office will be taking to market the core of Zycko's key solutions including Riverbed, the global leaders in point to point network acceleration and Hitachi Data Systems, one of the giants of the data storage industry providing a level of integration and support unmatched from any other disk system manufacturer.
The Munich office will allow Zycko Networks GmbH (based in Berlin) to expand its presence across Germany and to better serve those customers based in the south. Initially it will focus on sales but will also house a Technical Solutions centre allowing demonstration of Zycko's main product lines.
The Stockholm office is being opened to better serve those customers in Sweden currently serviced by Zycko Norway. The office will be under the control of Zycko Norway's MD Vivian Boe.
Zycko Iberica is a newly established company and is based in Madrid. Zycko has appointed Jose Maria Diaz-Carel as its Managing Director. Jose previously worked as B2net Country Manager for Spain from 2004.
Jose Maria Diaz-Carel said: "The new Iberian office will enable Zycko to consolidate their presence in south-western Europe. The Spanish market is continuously growing in the networking and storage sectors, Zycko's localised Spanish office will enable us to use our experience and expertise to tap into this market and increase our European business."
Vivian Boe said: "Zycko is moving towards more convergent solutions and therefore it is beneficial that we are closer to the market in Sweden. Through Zycko Sweden and our Swedish employees, we are now able to work even closer with our partners and end-users."
