This is according to Jason McGregor, sales manager for Axis Communications’ South Africa hub, who says that Interdist has a focused African footprint, a solid business and reseller network and a strong technical competence that aligns with Axis’s brand and its African strategy.

“Interdist Alliances will be bringing global best practices and business value to our customers in these regions,” he says. “With quality, reliability and accessibility being key requirements for our operations to maintain the high level of customer service and support expected of us, we believe we’ve chosen well in this regard.”

Kris Tierney, general manager at Interdist says it is their commitment as a value added distributor to help companies like Axis find new opportunities and provide reliable, responsive support making full use of the reach offered through the company’s growing network.

McGregor says this move marks an important milestone for the company globally. “Africa is most certainly the fastest growing emerging market in the world,” he says. “Our continent has gone through a remarkable decade of economic transformation and has become a very busy place to do business with talk of new investment, new cities, new airports and even new refineries. All of these places are going to need to be secured and it would be remiss of us were we not to find our place amongst the buzz.”
