Reverses trend that saw competitors close UK operations last year

London, UK – 4th March 2008 - Network Hardware Resale (NHR), the leading provider of pre-owned and new networking equipment, today announced it has further expanded its international operations with the opening of an office in London.

Located in Richmond, Surrey, the operation, previously based out of NHR’s European headquarters in Amsterdam, is responsible for sales and support to customers in the UK and Ireland. Business with the major telecommunications companies helped NHR achieve healthy sales growth in the UK last year - up 25 per cent year-on-year on 2006.
“Our philosophy of providing local language sales and support across all our markets is one of the key factors behind our success,” said Robert Wolthuis. “We have reached a stage in our development where growth in important markets like the UK allows us to provide customers with additional investment in local support services.

“Opening an office in the UK sends a positive signal to our UK and Ireland partners and customers that we are committed to providing the highest levels of customer service and support,” he concluded.

“We are very pleased that NHR has decided to open a local office,” said Michael Baxter, System Administrator, The Mount School. “Equipment sourced from the secondary market has allowed us to expand our network with leading Cisco technology on a limited budget.

“NHR’s ability to source and support kit in a timely and cost-efficient manner is unmatched by any other secondary market supplier,” he concluded.

NHR’s success contrasts markedly with its competitors. Network Liquidators and World Data both closed offices and withdrew from the UK market last year.

NHR’s UK office is located at:

2nd Floor
Castle Yard House
2 Castle Yard
Richmond-upon-Thames
Surrey
