Taiwan-based Synology, which has earned a good rapport in the field of network storage in India, has expanded its operations by appointing Supertron Electronics as its national distributor. Hitherto, Synology has been active in India through a slew of regional distributors and a set of solution partners.
The distribution alliance with Kolkata-headquartered Supertron Electronics signals the dawn of a new and rapid phase of Synology, where the company would be addressing not only the market of NAS (network attached storage) systems, but also that of networking gears and IP surveillance systems. The next step would obviously be the opening up of a full-fledged subsidiary of Synology in India.
“With the growth of mobile users and the maturing internet infrastructure, we believe this is the perfect timing to explore new opportunities with a new partner in India”, said Mike Chen, Sales Director of Synology Inc.
Vibhor Agarwal, Marketing Director of Supertron Electronics Pvt. Ltd, said, “Synology solutions have been phenomenal in many regions of the world. We’re pleased to be one of the missionaries of Synology products and help this company expand”. “Supertron’s offerings are better and stronger. Now, with Synology on our portfolio, we can take the broad spectrum of its storage and networking products in the country. Also, with years of channel experience, we’re confident in delivering world-class services in line with the quality of Synology products here in India”, added Agarwal.
Realizing a turnover of Rs 2800 Crore last fiscal, Supertron Electronics, has started shipping Synology products and providing consultancy services from its 35 branch offices, and 18 satellite offices spread across India. On the other hand, making maximum use of the latest technologies, Synology aims to help users centralize data storage and backup, share files on-the-go, implement professional surveillance solutions, and manage network in reliable and affordable ways.
