Krone Chooses Anixter As Regional Distributor Of PremisNET

German cabling giant Krone AG has picked Anixter Inc. as its Asia Pacific distributor for its structured cabling solutions.

The appointment builds on an existing Krone-Anixter partnership covering North America and Europe.

The regional distribution agreement encompasses Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand and Singapore.

Illinois-based Anixter, an established value-added provider of cabling solutions for business information networks, will distribute Krone's PremisNET product line.

PremisNET is a suite of multimedia, high-bandwidth structured cabling solutions, designed to help organizations future-proof their hefty network investments.

"Asia is a highly significant region to Krone and we have a major responsibility to deliver only the best to our customers via key channel partners," said Luke Mitchell, managing director of Krone Communications Ltd.

"Consequently, we have meticulously evaluated several primary structured cabling distributors before appointing Anixter for this region," continued Mitchell.

With 11 subsidiaries in Asia Pacific, Krone has been in the region for more than 10 years, according to Krone.

Anixter brings a client base of approximately 100,000 customers worldwide to the relationship.

"As an enterprise with distribution networks spanning the globe, we are able to open up more avenues for Krone to strategically expand their business in the Asia Pacific region," said Trip Allen, Krone strategic relations manager at Anixter.
