The deal is said to expand choice and provide “much-enhanced availability” for UK AV resellers and installers. As a result of the new agreement, Maverick Presentation Products will be able to distribute Vogel’s full range of mounting solutions for large-format displays, projectors and audio/video equipment.
Part of Computer 2000, Maverick possesses a distribution portfolio that also includes Hotlamps, Screen Expert and Vision.
Mark Tildesley (pictured), general manager of Maverick, said: “The extended availability that we will be able to provide on Vogel’s solutions will enable AV resellers to drive more added-value business with professional mounting solutions. Whatever the requirement, there is a Vogel’s solution that will fit the bill, and AV professionals and installers will now be able to rely on the specialist service and support, superior stock-holding and advanced logistics that only Maverick can offer, whenever they need to source a Vogel’s product.”
Allan Mack, UK sales manager for Vogel’s, added: “Vogel’s has chosen Maverick to partner with us on our full range of AV solutions products due to the unique way in which Maverick can take our products to market. They offer us the unique mix of a true specialist distributor, with exemplary support, great service and good old-fashioned AV knowledge, coupled with their outstanding logistical, credit and stockholding services that come with being part of the larger Tech Data group.”
Mack added that Maverick is “perfectly positioned to focus on delivering our Vogel’s Professional Products to the AV market while the Computer 2000 business is the perfect vehicle for our Physix range. Both Maverick and Vogel’s see the UK partnership as the starting point for what will be a long-term pan-European partnership that will suit the aspirations of both parties in these exciting times.”
