The agreement furthers Vertiv’s commitment to improving local stock levels and meeting the growing demand for IT infrastructure support, through machines such as Vertiv Liebert itON uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

Fajoba Group, local IT resellers and Vertiv products can make available the infrastructure and local expertise in these countries. Initiatives such as the Digital Uganda Vision and Tanzania’s Trend Solar are also setting ambitious goals for digital development in Africa. Trend Solar is a mobile and off-grid convergence system with a 4G Android PAYGO solar package, enables communities in the rural area to access the internet and receive electricity.

Josiane Niyodusenga, managing director of Fajoba Group, said that the partnership aims to help with financial rewards, training and support that allows the resellers to satisfy and fulfil customer requirements in a short time.

Pierre Havenga, managing director of Vertiv in Middle East and Africa, commented, "As part of our increasing focus on African markets, Vertiv identified the Fajoba Group as a reliable and progressive local partner for the rapidly emerging East and Central African region. With the support of the partnership, Fajoba is expected to open new sales offices, widen distribution channels, and cement its place as a regional IT leader."
