Expanding its UK footprint, leading control and automation manufacturer RTI has announced that it has named two additional distributors, Northamber and Indigo Distribution, as RTI partners for the UK market, adding commercial strength to complement its existing distribution partnerships with Invision and Pulse Cinemas.
Based in Chessington, Surrey, Northamber is the longest established trade-only distributor of IT equipment in the UK, with a 40-year history of providing complete technology solutions for the SME/SMB market. Headquartered in Bangor, Northern Ireland, Indigo Distribution serves integrators across the UK, offering support to help ensure success for every project — from the design stage through to post-installation.
“We are strongly committed to the UK market,” said RTI chief executive Joe Roberts. “The commercial side of our business is growing worldwide and Northamber is an ideal partner to accelerate our office, boardroom, and collaboration business in the UK. And with its high-touch approach, Indigo will add to the RTI resimercial footprint throughout the country, particularly with control and AV solutions for the hospitality market. We are thrilled to be adding both Northamber and Indigo to our UK distribution partners.”
Northamber director of AV solutions Roy Martin added: “Being able to add the extensive RTI product range and industry experience to Northamber’s ever-expanding range of professional AV solutions makes our value-add and solutions-driven proposition ever stronger. RTI product innovation adds a cutting-edge control solution to complement our existing vendor range and will add a new and stronger dimension to our AV offerings.”
Finally, Matthew Booth, Indigo MD, concluded: “We are excited to be representing RTI in the UK and Ireland. It is a world-leading automation platform that opens new doors for us into the commercial market, whilst also providing our current customers with an extra string to their bow. Indigo’s values align with RTI in that we are very much a customer first company and RTI allows the installer to really forge a unique identity for themselves in the industry.”
