Patriot strengthens brand presence in the UK with CMS Distribution
London, United Kingdom 20 February 2013 – CMS Distribution and Patriot have announced their partnership in the UK and Ireland, to supply resellers with Patriot’s full line of DRAM, flash memory products and accessories.
Patriot is one of the first technology brands to be launched by the distributor since re-branding on the 1st of January, 2013. The original parent companies, CMS Peripherals and CCI Distribution both had strong foundations in the storage arena, so it should come as no surprise that CMS Distribution is now the largest independent distributor of IT data storage products and solutions in the UK and Ireland. CMS makes an ideal partner for Patriot who is recognized as a world leader in high performance DRAM and Flash products, which products are marketed and distributed worldwide in over 100 countries.
The Patriot range at CMS Distribution spans ninety SKUs and counting with the largest offering being in its ‘RAM Modules’ category; SD cards, USB 2.0 and 3.0 flash drives make up the rest of the memory range. All Patriot Supersonic (USB 3.0) Flash Drives are Windows 8 compatible – a rare feature on the market today. Resellers will also find the Gauntlet wireless enclosure and mobile drive range, and wireless USB adapters available to purchase on CMS Distribution’s new website www.cmsdistribution.com.
Patriot is excited about the opportunity to partner with one of UK’s leading distributors. “In CMS Distribution, we have a business partner who shares our passion of offering high quality, innovated products”, says Neil Arnold, Patriot’s UK Sales Director.
CMS Distribution services thousands of VARs, resellers and consultants from multi-nationals to smaller, local IT companies; its customer portfolio is graced with the presence of house-hold names Dixons, Amazon, Argos and Ebuyer just to name a few. This is one of the main reasons Patriot entered into a distribution alliance with the company, “CMS Distribution’s targeted channel solutions and large customer network will help Patriot grow our brand further and make our products even more widely available in the UK and Ireland.” commented Neil Arnold.
Another range both Patriot and CMS Distribution are eager to penetrate the reseller market with is the Gauntlet range, particularly the Gauntlet Node which has the ability to connect up to eight devices and stream media and data to up to five simultaneously. It can also function as a complete Do-It-Yourself solution, to turn any 2.5” SATA HDD or SSD into a wireless storage unit. The Gauntlet Node connects to Android and iOS powered devices via the free Gauntlet Connect App available on Google Play, Amazon App Store, and the Apple App Store.
Paul Nevitt, Sales Manager at CMS Distribution, commented, “CMS is passionate about taking carefully chosen emerging storage vendors and new technology to market, particularly in the storage arena. In becoming a distributor for Patriot memory products we have significantly strengthened our storage portfolio given Patriot’s extensive memory offering.” CMS Distribution now stocks Patriot Memory’s Signature Line DDR3, Memory for Ultrabook, Viper 3 Series – Black Mamba DDR3, Intel® Extreme Masters Memory Limited Edition and Signature Apple Line DDR3.
CMS Distribution is a value added distributor of business and consumer data storage products and solutions in the UK and Ireland. Real value added service is an essential component of success over the past 25 years.
The company is strictly trade only and sells to both the B2B and B2C channel partners. It services thousands of VARs, resellers and consultants from multi-nationals to smaller, local IT companies.
