Sales director Adrian Macklin added: "Part of my objective is to deliver what our resellers need to stay competitive, adding value by delivering the latest opportunities via Target.
"This agreement yet again cements the confidence of vendors and is just one of a number we have been recently negotiating with, with more to be announced over the coming months, further supporting our customers new and old.”
