As Siltek Asia-Pacific moves into its new head office facility in the booming IT district of Sydney's North Ryde, the company is planning an industry first with a reseller shop to be completed by May.
The shop, part of the combined office and high clearance warehouse facility in Talavera Road, will offer resellers access to terminals for in-store ordering and purchasing.
The move consolidates Siltek's previously disparate business units of Prion, CIE and Agate into one location, although stock will still be located in its other warehouses in Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth.
Siltek managing director Hugh Evans told ARN he hopes to be the first distributor with a reseller shop. The company is the only distributor located in the area, surrounded by the likes of Toshiba, Oracle, Microsoft, Tektronix and Sony.
Siltek's vendor partners include Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Seagate, Adaptec, Toshiba, Iomega, Acer, Tektronix, Hitachi and Sony.
