Eindhoven, The Netherlands – Philips 3D Solutions and Ingram Micro have signed a distribution agreement that enables the world’s largest technology distributor Ingram Micro to distribute the Philips 3D displays in Continental (or mainland) Europe.
By partnering with Ingram Micro as a decoupling point for Continental Europe, Philips can establish optimized order fulfillment– and logistical processes of the 3D displays, leading to faster delivery times and more flexibility for resellers, vendors and other system integrators. Furthermore, by addressing the large network of Ingram Micro’s resellers and vendors, Philips can establish intensive reach and scale in mainland Europe rapidly.
‘This agreement with Ingram Micro enables us to increase our reach to many European resellers at once. It fits well within our vision of creating a large 3D ecosystem for our 3D displays and our WOWvx content offering,’ says Jos Swillens CEO of Philips 3D Solutions.
„Philips is a leading innovator in the Digital Signage market and valued manufacturer to us and our channel partners,“ says Eric Segers, managing director, Ingram Micro B.V. „We are pleased to once again be recognized for our added value and European customer reach by Philips and look forward to give our customers access to this exiting technology to enable more partner growth.“
Although Ingram Micro will take over the logistical and order fulfillment process in continental Europe to a large extent, Philips 3D Solutions will remain closely connected to end customers, special projects and dedicated application areas.
Philips 3D Solutions is the line of business within Royal Philips Electronics that provides end-to-end 3D solutions, including 3D displays and advanced content creation tools and services. Philips 3D displays are sold globally through selected distributors per region.
