Avnet doubles Sun reseller fleet

Hails successful channel push

Avnet's Partner Solutions Sun Division has doubled the number of Sun resellers it serves in the UK.

The growth comes after a six month programme to get more dealers on board. This included improved training and accreditation as well as "Focus Days" where resellers could meet senior Sun staff.

The primary target was resellers not selling Sun kit.

Andrew Sayers, director of Sun division at Avnet Partner Solutions, said Sun's move to green computing and "arguably its best product range for many years" had helped improve sign-ups.

Avnet bought Sun specialist Access Distribution for $412.5m in late 2006.
