Samsung and GVI part ways


Samsung Techwin America announced this morning that it is parting ways with its master distributor GVI. Its distributors and integrators will now be served though its headquarers in Ridgefield Park, N.J.

The company said the move is a realignment to enable them to work more closely with the channel. In a prepared statement, Samsung senior VP sales and marketing Frank De Fina, said: “We want to earn the business by investing resources at the channel level to drive sales to distributors and systems integrators.”

I’ve got a call with Frank De Fina this morning, so will have more info later today.
