Taiwanese PC board manufacturer Soyo is opening a UK office to spearhead its attack on the local market.
Soyo has been trading from its European head office in The Netherlands. Although the company has been selling well in Benelux, Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal, it has achieved little penetration of the UK market.
The company?s product range includes Triton VX and HX-based motherboards, which are in volume production, and Triton TX boards. High-performance boards supporting fast bus speeds, AGP, and versions for slot one Pentium II chips are due to be announced soon.
The company claimed that its boards were competitively priced and would appeal to a wide range of OEM customers.
Ruud van Zwet, head of Soyo?s European operation, said: ?We are offering a range of products to suit different OEM requirements. Our VX boards are in high volume now, and are not expensive.
?At the high end, we are one of the first manufacturers to offer AGP, which we will deliver soon and we will offer an excellent slot one solution.?
