Entatech adds Hercules and Thrustmaster brands
by Stuart Wilson, Tuesday 20 November 2012
UK distributor Entatech has boosted its portfolio, adding Hercules and Thrustmaster to its vendor line-up. Entatech hopes that Hercules audio products will fly out of the warehouse and sales of Thrustmaster gaming controllers will accelerate in the run-up to Christmas.
Iain Gillogaley, gaming and peripherals channel manager at Entatech, said: “This is really great news both for Entatech and its retailer and webstore customers in the gaming market. Hercules is a really well-known and trusted name in the PC accessories market and Thrustmaster commands an equal level of respect amongst gamers for great quality and performance. With the busiest time of the year for gaming and gaming accessories just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to be giving our customers access to these innovative and inspiring ranges.”
After establishing a reputation in the development of 3D graphics cards, Hercules has become a developer of digital DJ devices, speaker systems, webcams, home networking solutions, sound cards and recently entered the wireless speaker universe. Thrustmaster provides a wide range of hand-held controllers, racing wheels, joysticks and other gaming accessories for PCs and consoles. Both brands are owned by Guillemot Corporation.
Dan Elbro, UK country manager for Guillemot, commented: “We are excited to be partnering Entatech for the marketing of our Hercules and the Thrustmaster branded products to their customers. We are aware of Entatech’s access to the audio and gaming market throughout the UK and we look forward to a successful and productive trading relationship."
