The Dutch-based vendor Rackmount.IT has opened an office in Australia. The company says the office in Sydney will support partners in Australia, New Zealand and the rest of Asia-Pacific.
Rackmount.IT specialises in custom 19” rack mount kits for desktop appliances such as small firewalls, switches and routers. With their portfolio of rack mount kits, they support appliances of roughly 18 global vendors in the networking- and security industry such as Cisco Meraki, Fortinet and Watchguard.
The vendor has relocated Mark van der Pijll from the Netherlands to Sydney to focus on the APAC business. The newly appointed Regional Director APAC confirms: “After our rapid growth in Europe and the Americas, the time has come to focus on our APAC business. We already opened a warehouse location in 2020 to minimize lead times to our ANZ partners. Having a local team in the region certainly helps us to further build the business”.
Visibility and product awareness will be the first goal for Rackmount.IT. “Our experience tells us that once a reseller or MSP has had the opportunity to implement our rack mount kits as standard solution to their projects, they will benefit from a consistent upsell revenue stream’, says Van der Pijll. “Lots of opportunities lay ahead for both us and our partners. I cannot wait to partner with our existing customer base, expand the network and eventually build a local Australian team”.
