According to the vendor, which manufactures a broad range of products to the consumer, SOHO and SMB markets, including Wireless Solutions, ADSL, Routers, Switches, IP Cameras, Powerline Adapters, Print Servers, Media Converters, Network Adapters and Smartphones, the appointment of Assr Al Jawal as its distribution partner paves the way for the company to further develop its business with independent retailers in the UAE.
In terms of the deal, Assr Al Jawal will supply independent retailers in the Emirates with TP-Link’s entire range of Neffos smartphones and accessories.
Lucas Jiang, General Manager, TP-Link MEA FZE, said the company is delighted to have signed Assr Al Jawal as its distributor in UAE.
“Assr Al Jawal has a good reach across UAE, and a dedicated team that focuses on the independent retailer market,” he said.
