Harrisburg, Pa. — D&H Distributing had added 35 vendors in several emerging technologies to its summer lineup, including LED HDTVs, PC data recovery, GSM-enabled netbooks and consumer VoIP, among other categories.
This is in response to requests from significant retailers and e-tailers in the marketplace who have asked for a
broader range of distribution options, D&H said.
The new vendors were added in the past six months, the distributor said.
“Technology-wise, this is an exciting time. Challenges in the economy often lead to more innovation, and we predict that mobile protocols like GSM and others will take off, creating new business,” said Jeff Davis, sales senior VP at D&H Distributing. “We’re engaged in a strategic effort to broaden our offerings in the consumer electronics and home entertainment markets, especially for the retail sector. We’re proud that our customers are anxious to do business with us over a greater diversity of inventory.”
