New Sales Manager & three new distribution partners to drive sales in region

PFU Imaging Solutions Europe

December 15, 2010

PFU Imaging Solutions Europe Ltd., a subsidiary of Fujitsu Ltd., today announced the appointment of three new distribution partners in sub-Saharan Africa, who will be supported by additional sales resources within the company, and the unveiling of an active reseller recruitment campaign.

Of the new partners, Astel will cover Nigeria, Ghana, Gambia, Sierra Leone and Liberia, DocuScan Africa will cover Nigeria and Ghana, and Imagetek will cover Kenya. This move will enhance the local sales, marketing and technical support efforts, and also help local resellers take advantage of the rapidly growing market for professional document scanners and document management solutions in sub-Saharan Africa.

In addition to these appointments, PFU Imaging Solutions is expanding the role of Adrian Cafferkey, who up to now was responsible for South Africa, to manage sales in the region. Speaking on his new role, Adrian Cafferkey said: “I am very excited about the opportunities that exist in this region, and I look forward to working closely with our distribution partners and recruiting new resellers to take our products to market. We recently introduced our range of scanners to resellers in Kenya, Ghana and Nigeria through a series of sales seminars, and have had an overwhelming response. We will have a number of such events in due course, and look forward to interacting with resellers and customers directly and through our new partners.”

Mike Nelson, General Manager-Sales Operations, PFU Imaging Solutions Europe Ltd., said: “We have long been committed to extending our reach across Africa, and we are delighted to welcome Astel and DocuScan as new distribution partners, and expand our relationship with Imagetek. These partnerships - along with our appointment of dedicated sales resources - demonstrates our commitment towards investing in new territories, staying one step ahead of the competition, and offering best-in-class products, solutions and services to all markets, thereby helping cement our leading market position.”
