The Global Technology Distribution Council (GTDC) has announced the addition of three new members: CMS Distribution, Siewert & Kau and Tessco Technologies. The new members support the GTDC’s continued global expansion while further demonstrating the success and growth of distribution worldwide, according to the association. Tim Curran, CEO at GTDC, said: “The role of distribution is as important as ever at the center of technology ecosystems.”

“Our analysis of aggregate distributor sales reflects strong growth in the UDS and Europe this year. Vendor partners are engaging in dynamic new ways to advance their business in current and emerging markets. These new GTDC members attest to the trends in action, as they’re all highly successful and adept at introducing new services to the channel,” he added.

GTDC members’ sales exceed more than US$150 billion in annual revenue. Although the GTDC was founded in the US, its aggregate member revenue is now considerably higher in the European region – and the growth continues with the addition of Siewert & Kau, headquartered in Bergheim, Germany, and London-based CMS Distribution.

Frank Salmon, CEO & founder at CMS, stated: “Joining the GTDC is a significant step in our overall growth and stature in the technology industry. The GTDC will serve as a critical asset in leveraging partner opportunities and capitalising on industry developments as we continue to expand our channel presence throughout the world.”

CMS Distribution was created in 1988 and sells to over 3,000 business-to-business and business-to-consumer reseller partners with locations in the UK and Ireland as well as the Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, France, Australia and China.

Siewert & Kau specializes in IT distribution, logistics and services with trading partners in 65 countries. Established in 1994, the company has decades of experience with a diverse selection of IT products while delivering a full range of logistics services and solutions expertise in areas ranging from software and marketing to accounting.

Björn Siewert, one of Siewert & Kau’s founders and managing directors, said: “We pride ourselves on active and consistent alignment with our vendor partners, and the framework provided by the GTDC will only further this mission.”

In addition to signing the two new members based in Europe and the UK, the GTDC also announced the addition of Tessco Technologies, a US.-based value-added technology distributor specialising in wireless solutions. Founded in 1982, Tessco supplies more than 50,000 products from 400 top manufacturers in mobile communications, Wi-Fi, Internet of Things (IoT) and more.
