NEWS: Service Parts Logistics and Fujitsu Siemens
[Johannesburg, 6 February 2006] – Service Parts Logistics (SPL), the largest parts solutions provider in Africa, today formally announced for the first time that it is the sole parts reseller and distributor in Africa for Fujitsu Siemens and has been operating as such since mid-2005.
“We believe this extension of our capability confirms that our model, originally pioneered with Apple and then HP, is one that is extremely acceptable to both our principals and our partners,” commented Steve Cox, CEO of Microtek, the holding company of SPL.
“We continue to work closely with service providers (SPs) to customise stock holdings in line with the local installed base and projected sales. We believe that this sort of detailed and focused attention to parts distribution is vital to maintain the required levels of after sales service.
“As is the case with Apple and HP, our National Logistics Control centre in Randpark Ridge provides us with the ability to plan and distribute stock into our regional offices situated in KZN and Cape Town and thus provide a high level first pass fill rate into our strategic customers greatly reducing their repair times,” continued Cox.
“One of the major benefits that has arisen from our regional presence has been our ability to provide Fujitsu Siemens with the comfort that their customers are being supplied nationally at service levels which allows them to deliver world-class IT services,” concluded Cox.
