Under the terms of the agreement, which covers the whole of Europe, Hammer will target OEMs and system integrators in application areas including broadcast equipment, content storage solutions and industrial and ruggedised PCs.
Shiro Ando, vice president of strategic business planning at Toshiba Electronics Europe, said: “Hammer’s experience and expertise in the storage sector perfectly complements Toshiba’s SSD range.
"Working together we will be able to support the growing number of OEMs and systems integrators across Europe that are adopting SSD solutions for their products and ensure that they reap the maximum benefits from the technology.”
Gerard Marlow, general manager of business development at Hammer, said: “We are seeing increasing interest in a number of application areas for the combination of performance and reliability that SSD technology can provide. Working with Toshiba will be a significant addition to our range and will ensure that we can continue to deliver the best solutions to meet our customers’ needs.
"We have been particularly impressed by Toshiba’s full in-house SSD system development, manufacturing capability and integrated supply chain.”
