Distributor Westcon Group has announced that it has entered into a joint venture with Index Group, an Istanbul-based distributor of IT equipment. As a result of the joint venture, Westcon Group, through Netex, becomes the leading networking and security distributor carrying Cisco and Nortel products in that region.
By partnering with an established, locally based distribution operation, Westcon Group is able to apply its solutions-based model while leveraging the local back office and logistics capabilities of Netex. In addition, Netex will be able to leverage the inventory position from Westcon Group’s warehouses in the Middle East and Europe. To further support the local reseller community, the Company will also launch Westcon Group’s targeted solutions programs during the next few months.
