CMS Peripherals, the UK and Irish award-winning data storage distributor, today announced that it has formally changed its corporate name to CMS Distribution. In connection with the name change, the new corporate website has become www.cmsdistribution.com.
CMS Distribution will service the reseller community of both CMS Peripherals and CCI Distribution, whom it acquired in 2011. Reseller customers of either company will experience minimal disruption. Their account manager’s details, including telephone numbers, remain unchanged while former email addresses are redirected to the new domain, @cmsdistribution.com. Online customers of either company can continue to trade at the new online store, www.cmsdistribution.com.
Frank Salmon, founder and Managing Director commented, “The acquisition has been a wonderful success. Our new corporate name, CMS Distribution, more appropriately reflects our focus and mission as a channel only distribution company. Our resellers enjoy a greater breadth of product portfolio and expertise while our vendors benefit from greater customer reach.”
Paul Roughley, founder of CCI Distribution, becomes Operations Director of CMS Distribution. Paul commented, “It has been a great time for our customers and vendors. Our combined synergies have made us a significant proposition and we cherish the opportunity that lies ahead as CMS Distribution.”
