    2007 — Johannesburg (SA): Ingram Micro and MB Technologies Group, a
    South African supplier of IT products, have formed a partnership that

    June 2007.The new Ingram Micro South Africa subsidiary will be located
    north of Johannesburg, and will distribute IT components products to
    VARs, system integrators and OEM customers across the broad Sub-Saharan
    territory from South Africa in the south to Ethiopia to the north and
    Liberia to the west.For Ingram Micro, the partnership adds another
    corner of the world to its extensive global footprint and is further
    evidence of the company’s commitment to expand into new geographies
    with significant IT markets.Hans Koppen, president of Ingram Micro
    Europe, said: “We are delighted to enter into this partnership with MB
    Technologies, which for some time we have recognised as one of the very
    best technology distributors in South Africa, and to lay together the
    foundations of Ingram Micro South Africa.”Leo Baxter, CEO of MB
    Technologies, said: “We are now ready to move beyond our focus on
    providing complete, end-to-end solutions to resellers and their
    customers and we want to take advantage of opportunities we see in the
    components sector to deliver high-quality components at lower costs to
    the South African system integrator market.”
