Ingram reaches for the Startech

Hard-to-find-R-US

Ingram Micro has expanded its deal with the intriguing StarTech.com into the UK.

Why intriguing? Because StarTech specializes in “hard to find” computer parts. Of course, it depends what you mean by hard to find. A quick trot across the StarTech.com site shows lots of cases, removable storage, switches, etc. All pretty standard stuff you’d have thought. Then again, try to find any of that by rifling through your supplies box.

The company does have a particular bent towards AV, with a myriad of cables, splitters, extenders, etc. You may or may not be surprised that one of its retail partners in the UK is none other than Maplins. Get the picture?®
