Vertiv appoints Tarsus as distributor for Sub Saharan Africa
Tarsus Distribution has been appointed by Vertiv as a distribution partner for Sub-Saharan Africa.
Vertiv, a digital infrastructure and continuity solutions firm, aims to collaborate with the local IT channel to significantly enhance its presence throughout the region.
According to Vertiv, Tarsus has a history of over 35 years in operation within the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region.
George Moss, Enterprise Sales director for Southern Africa at Vertiv, commented: "This new partnership with Tarsus will help both businesses reach new audiences, providing Vertiv with a well-experienced, broad-based local distributor, in addition to our existing partners. These strengths create an excellent opportunity for Vertiv locally."
Tarsus will primarily focus on Vertiv's products, such as uninterruptible power supplies, power distribution units, and integrated racks, according to Moss. However, Tarsus will also have access to Vertiv's complete product portfolio, including three-phase UPS systems and smart solutions.
Jamie Scott, CTO, said: "Tarsus Distribution is focusing on the enterprise segment within the next 12 to 24 months. The market is ripe for prefabricated modular data centre offerings, while demand within the data centre and hosted data centre space is increasing. We anticipate that growth opportunities will certainly unfold in the short to medium term."
"Our partnership with Vertiv will allow us to tap into the growing infrastructure needs of the SADC region, in particular. We will educate our sales teams and channel partners to offer technology solutions in partnership with Vertiv, based on the digital training and digital partner assistance provided by the organisation. This will also include advanced services to support Vertiv solutions, including specification, configuration, and installation, as well as offering Vertiv solutions via our e-commerce partners."
