Keeping its tradition of tying up with OEM/ODM manufacturer Mediatech India

has now tied up with Taiwan-based Foxconn for distributing its products

exclusively in India. Mediatech will introduce Foxconn's desktop PC and server

mot-herboards followed by chassis and cooling systems to rese-llers and

retailers nationwide. They will be available in a week's time.

Foxconn, the trade name of Hon Hai Precision Industry Co, is

one of the world's largest manufacturers of cable asse-mblies and

motherboards. Almost 33 million mother-boards were produced in 2004 which is the

second-highest volume in the world. It is also the world's largest

manufa-cturer of PC connectors and enclosures.

"There were two key factors that excited us about intro-ducing

Foxconn brand to our customers. Their vast manu-facturing experience of over 30

years and product accepta-nce from leading VARs that will ensure value,

perfor-mance and stability for Indian consumers," said Piyush Chaterbhoj,

Managing Dire-ctor, Mediatech India.


"Finding a manufacturer willing to learn about the

Indian market and its require-ments before trying to sell anything was equally

impo-rtant for us. This is exactly what Foxconn did before join-ing hands with

us," he added.

Foxconn has taken warranty and support very seriously and are

in the process of setting up 3rd party service centers across India. According

to Vincent Yuan, GM of Foxconn's Channel Service Division, the company's

plans to enter India was several years in the making, but the company did not

want to be precipitous. "We wanted to learn about the users, the channel,

and local preferences before leaping into the market," said Yuan.

"We wanted a long-term partner who gets what 'the-art-of-more'

means and could help demonstrate this to everyone in the channel, all the way to

the end-user. Mediatech India is that partner, and that is why we have chosen to

launch our India business with them," he summed.
