Milestone Systems appoints Pinnacle Africa

February 2015 News

Pinnacle Africa, one of southern Africa’s largest ICT distributors, has been appointed as a Milestone Systems distribution partner in the southern African region.

Kitty van der Sluis, Milestone distribution director for EMEA said, “We have appointed Pinnacle to support our effort to penetrate more markets in the southern African region as well as strengthen our presence in the local South African market.”

Milestone’s director of sales for Middle East and Africa, Peter Biltsted, added, “Due to the continued growth in the region in 2012/13, Milestone added local resources into the southern African region in 2014 in the form of Michael Metcalfe who will continue this growth, strengthen our position and penetrate the market even further. To assist Milestone with this continued growth we felt it necessary to expand further into the surrounding regions around South Africa as well through a partner vastly touching these areas and we found Pinnacle was that additional partner.”

Security and surveillance brand manager for Pinnacle Africa, Jéan Coetzee, said, “We are very excited to now be in a position to distribute Milestone Systems’ products. The interaction with Supermicro servers and storage, as well as our comprehensive range of ICT equipment, will establish Pinnacle Africa as a major player and solutions provider within the security arena. The addition of Milestone to any CCTV solution adds immense value to the solution and gives Pinnacle the opportunity to attach the added value and offer a higher level of engagement with both existing and new clients.”
